My question is would this mount be worth buying? I am looking to see what you,the consumer want. All input would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
jason
S#*t I'll buy one

Default It looks great!

I would pay more than that if I could get the imput shaft out. Otherwise it looks right on! One thing about the TC4 so many of us like is how easy it is to wrench on.

One thing about the TC4 so many of us like is how easy it is to work on and I feel that would be going back wards, but I'll take what I can get.
If you think thats easy to work on, you should be able to re-build an Xray blind folded while driving to the track. Flame on...

Default Jason does this mount...

have your "open ended" screw mount holes like your TC3 motor mount?

Will any of your TC4 kits come with your motor mount at a higher price?

Default Jason...

I was thinking, is there anyway to make the motor mount by using the TC3 molded imput bearing clamp? Like on your BMI TC3. That would be nice.

Jason. You can make a couple for me right away.

But it's got to be "RIGHT AWAY".

Regarding ease of wrenching. I have worked on almost every car at some time or other and have never found one that even get's near the new Yoke BD for ease of maintenance and accessability. And it's a bloody good car too.

A motor mount AND a bearing support? Taking away any chance of flex between the motor and spur gear? Fifty bucks is a bargain. I'll take one and one of those super duper stock motors!

Can someone answer this for me. With an outdated webpage I don't know how much things cost. I have asked before, but have recieved no responses. Thanks.

scrad,
sorry i missed your posted question. the fk05 kit is $154.99 and comes with the chassis,top deck,standoffs for between the chassis and top deck,batery strap and standoffs,and the shock towers.i have not considered selling just the chassis and top deck but i think it will be somewhere about $110.00 for both.i am in the proicess of updating the webpage.sorry for the inconvenience.
