Losi Ten-T Motor Mount

I am planning a Losi 810 conversion.
Does anyone know how to order the Losi Ten-T motor mount individually?
Does it require the custom 32P spur gear?

I agree.

I would have loved participating in this race but a race on a Holiday like Thanksgiving just won't work for me.

If it weren't for the fact that this race is Thanksgiving weekend, I would make the 1200mi trek down from Seattle. :grrrrrr:

Unfortunately, if the fan on your HV ESC fails, your ESC will let the smoke out shortly after. :gasp:

From the pictures and exploded view, the center transmission box seems fully enclosed. So, how does the BL motor power the center transmission if there are no external gears?

What ESC are you running?
Did the temps of the ESC and batts change after you switched to the Hacker?
I would presume the ESC temps went down so I would recommend trying a 17T pinion
