Of course if you aren't racing it and the motor isn't getting hot, then the plastic mount will be fine.

If you want to upgrade it you can buy a nice motor mount side alloy plate from Tamiya, 3Racing or Yeah Racing, but it is not much more to buy a complete alloy pod from 3Racing, Yeah Racing
Hmm, I though it would be something like that. I have an Ezrun 13T motor which doesn't produce any heat at all. However I wanted to run this car with brushed electronics I have left (start with Sports Tuned, then change to Orion 16x3... Vantage David Spashett edition 12T would probably be too much ) and these motors do generate quite a lot of heat. I guess I'll just order a aluminium rear pod. BTW stupid questions, can TC shocks be used?
