Yeah, My bad, it's because I am using a cap head screw instead of a regular one. It's different when I race.

Andy, I have seen a a different body mount on a P81, but I can't remember what it was or how it was fitted, maybe Serpent or Mugen (not sure from what car or version of either). What problem are you trying to solve?

I have posted my baseline RS2 setup here http://www.motonica-usa.com/support.html

Default rear mount

hi garen,
i was told that the rear mounts brake easily and i was just wondering if i could try some thing a bit stronger that's all.also do you have a set up for low traction as the track i run on is both low traction and technical.

The rear body mount is actually quite reliable. If anything, the weak point could be the two posts that protrude from it. If you roll over and hit something just right, you can rip one off. If you do, you can simply grind the broken one down, cut/grind the other as well, drill holes in their place and install any body post of your liking. I have done this before and you will see this on some of the team driver cars as well. The body mount on my car is probably the original one from when I built it a year and a half ago.

I don't have a low bite setup, but I could try to come up with one. I would recommend looking at some of the Euro setups, they normally don't race on prepped surfaces, and their definition of high or medium bit is very different from ours here in the states. Email me to remind me to send you some suggestions for a low bite track.

Based on my racing experience, the body mount I'm still using is the the one intended and included in the P81 package. The body post is shorter (with single hole option/fixed) compared to the updated version (P81RS/RS2). I flipped on several occasions and still it's intact. I find it very sturdy and pliant and I could not afford to look for any another body mount since the Motonica got the slickest, good looking one. HTH. Cheers.

BTW, I attached a thumbnail of the body mount I am using,

Hi guys,
I've been running all Motonica P81's (pro, RS, RS2), and only the first ones had that kind of problems.
Now the rear body mount is strong, it has been charged with more carbon since the pro version I think.

cheers

Carlo, the shock spring adjusting rings are upside down on your car. Also, be sure the bolt and nut you have holding the body mount to the H-arms are not too tight. The newer kits now come with a pin and collar instead of pin and e-clip, so that might be something you might want to change in the future.

One last thing, you might want to add another shim between the rear shock tower and the center pin. This will move the centering pin further out and minimize the centering plate from popping off in a hard crash. Let me know when you want to try the VMR tires, I have a fresh batch coming next month.

Thank you very much, Garen. I really need that since I am preparing for a major race here. Hope it'll be a good one. It'll be my first race. I have quite enough spare of tires for the said event but surely, I'll be getting the VMR tires once these got depleted. You know I believe and follow your tips, religiously. Thanks and cheers, Garen.
