By the way, the serpent sirio mount is of the same height as the original mount, I wonder how will it raise the engine for the throttle to clear?
The only difference I could find is just that the sirio mount got the holes aligned for sirio engines...
Here are two pics from one of our team drivers.
One shows a mod to the pipe to get more clearance to the stering arm. The other shows engine mounting. He angled the carb slightly to get correct clearance.
Hope this helps, as an addition I'd look into using an M3 setscrem from the side in the pipe to fix it to the holding spring. Might be a bit beefier then the small thread left in the front of the pipe.

mine was actually the Capricorn 12. same engine case though as an evo 4. the xxx may be a little different. shimming wasnt much. like a 1mm shim on each screw at max.

Hey, I managed to fit my sirio with original mount into my 733 without any shims or modification to the mount! Howver the throttle will touches the fuel tank at full throttle...
Shouldn't be a problem though, will be testing it this sat.

Quite possibly rotating the carb a little helps resolve the clearance issue.

Default MACHINED ALUMINUM 733 MOTOR MOUNTS

OK. some of us have been breaking the stock motor mounts,
I have a friend that owns a machine shop and he is machining
some out of aluminum. If anyone is interested,
I'm taking pre orders on them so I know how much raw material
to get. They will cost $45 a set + $5 shipping. to the U.S.
These will be a direct fit part - no modifications will
be necessary. Please feel free to PM me or email me at

Need to Know.
I wish I could give you a good reason, but I can't.
I believe they are breaking during crashes.
I do not know how the tracks are where you race, but in
Florida we have very hard boards and metal partitions on our
tracks. I don't have any pics of my broken mounts, as I threw
them away at the track. Maybe someone else on here
does. I must not be the only one, as I have already taken
several pre-orders from people that have broken their's. Hope this
helps you out.

We have broken 2 rear mounts as well, both in the same place. Our thoughts are the mounts flex more when running without the 2 rear screws to make the chassis softer.

We have been running with the 2 rear screws back in now with a replacement mount and it appears to be fine.

Regards

Kyle
