sorry to hear that, just saw your pic! seems the welding is too little.
in that case a reinforcement from a good alum welder should do it

just a note for you guys
The weld on the ninja pipe is very weak and many people are having problems with it. Theres more info about it on the ninja motor thread. In fact my friend didnt even hit anything and his stinger came off.

thanks in advance

you dont really need a 1piece motor mount
and you cant when you use the mugen 4mm chassis whitch you should use
setup look here http://www.mugenseiki.com/menueefi.htm
look at Keisuke Fukuda's its a good starting point for a mid to large track.
good luck

Default 3 racing engine mount

I have been using the 3racing engine mount for 18 months now with out a problem
But you have to make sure that your engine screws are the correct length
When I first got my Mtx4 it was brought to my attention that the exhaust side of the mounts the screws where to long
So when you actually tightened the screws would bottom out on each other
It looks like you have had the same problem
The screws actually touching and creating pressure and tearing the mount apart

i was aware of this and i did use short screws
i did run the mount all last year maybe it was just getting old, nothing lasts forever.
