1. is the new C12 supposed to have two .030 washers between the t-bar and bottom pod plate?

2. or one .030 per the old instructions? and break out the dremel to start notching for clearance?
I'm taking a stab at this. Because of the way the rear pod is designed, you'll want to run option 2. Because the motor hangs below the bottom plate, using only one .030 spacer will make it so that the bottom of the motor is even with the main chassis plate.
