Default would it be so difficult?

for engine and kit manufacturers to get together and have a standard set of specs for mounting?

went to put an sts in a mtx-3... not gonna happen with the engine mounts it comes with...

I guess I shouldn't complain, manufacturers could make it so that only their engines will fit and nothing else....

Weird it seems my nova , omega and STS all fit in the same engine mount. I couldnt see it being different on an mtx?

Maybe there backwards or turn around or something?

Weird it seems my novarossi , omega and STS all fit in the same engine mount, so they all have the same engine mount holes. I couldnt see it being different on an mtx?

Maybe there backwards or turn around or something?

the mtx-3 engine mounts have a lip or edge towards the bottom of the mount that hits the case, causing it to be at an angle...... I took a bit of that inside edge off and now it works fine...
