Thank you protc3 but I still want the other mounts.
Try to do the mesh without the transmision brace on the engine side. I got the low center mounts, but it still didnt mesh correctly. What i had to do was take off the transmission brace on the engine side. I have an MR12.

I couldn't get mine to mesh until i took out the transmission brace. I may have a warped transmission case. Everything else seems fine. Glad to see you got yours to mesh right.

Default 5 cell flat pack

I cant seem to get my battery in between the holders. I have both holders facing each other so that the cut out part goes on the battery. I have a futaba nrf5600. it seems to big.


nevermind. Its a little wierd on how to get it in. I put the other silver thing on the battery and then lowered the battery down and screwed in the silver thing. its ok now

I am running out of room in my receiver box. The wire for the bat pack and the wire that the batt pack hook up to are quite long. I was able to put it in nice and snug along side the battery pack and chassis. would this hurt it? what if i put a msall piece of duct tape to secure and protect it?

It's just a GS (General Silicones) ant. mount. Drill or ream a hole in the reciever box and bolt it in. File a notch in the back of the lid for the ant. to go through.
Are you guys sure the left rear chassis brace is'nt rubbing the pinion gear causing you to have no mesh? The gear don't really clear the brace without the BMI mounts. Well at least mine did'nt. And I tried 4 diff sets mounts, (Golden Horizon, AE(stock and Team mounts), K-Factory. You say you have mesh with out the brace? right? Theres no way you could bolt the braces on the car and loose gear mesh. The way the diff bolts and the chassis is made theres no flex there .

If i put the brace on, the pinion gears scrap the bottom of the brace. But when its off, everything works fine.

bbntc3- shims under the brace. Ran my chassis last weekend and will again this weekend. Yes it is better than stock. Maybe a little hand fitting but it's worth it.

Saka... I was going to do that but the chassis was just too pretty.

I noticed the gap too. Still ran it. Night and day at least for me from the stock piece.
