Default engine mounts

i am about to order a LRP .30 motor for my GT1 ,currently the stock .28 sits directly on the chassis, i know i have to order engine mounts but there is a plate that has to be ordered that goes between the chassis and the mount , i have seen several and some said 3mm left & right , there are also some on ebay thats a 1 piece unit meaning the mount and spacer are together, not sure which to get thnx

The ones I have seen on ebay are still a 2 piece mount just the pic shows them screwed together. I dont know how well they are built, I have had mixed results with cheap aluminum parts off ebay, some have been great others the aluminum was way too soft and screws tended to strip out easily.

I use the Kyosho "SP" upgraded mounts with the stock plates...it is pricey but I got my set used for $10.....the ones off ebay look tempting at less than 1/2 the price of the SP mount alone.

Here are some links
