Smile RCM 1/8 motor mounts > compatibility between models? - 10.14.2008, 07:45 AM

Hello,
I post this thread because I need to know wich motor mount could be used on which car?

I know we can use an MBX5 motor mount on an EB4 without modifications, but is it the case for any other motor mount?

For example can we use an MP7 motor mount on a MP9 without mods?

And for the Xray one, what are the suitable models? XB8 EC? XB8R? 808?

Thanks for your help :).

Christophe

I would start by looking at the part numbers for the stock center brace for whatevr models you are looking at. If they are the same, then it should fit unless there is some wierdo setup change. For example, Ofna uses the same mount for the Hyper 7, H8, H8.5, and the Hyper ST. Mike's hyper mount fits them all.

On that same note, does anyone know if any of Mikes mounts will fit the Duratrax Raze ST Truggy?

(Sorry for the hijack))

This is a good thread and could make a great reference if everyone submitted their data from their setups.

I know the LS10 mount will work on the GT10.

I believe the XB8 mount will work on all XB8 models and the XT8, but not the XB808.

Hello,
thanks all for your replies :), yes I think and I hope this thread will help a lot of people.

For the moment I have the following motor mounts :

Kyosho MP7XX

Mugen MBX5 > Fit Thunder tiger EB4 (S1/S2 = S3?)

Xray XB8 > XB8R > XB8TQ > XB8EC > XT8

Ofna Hyper > Hyper 7 > Hyper 8 > Hyper 8.5 > Hyper ST

Losi Eight

Asso RC8

Cen Matrix

GS Storm

My question was wich one can fit which car without any modifications?

Can we use an MP7xx one on an MP9?
Same for MBX5 and MBX6.

It would be great if someone of Rc monster could help us.

Thanks for your help :).

Hello, thanks for your reply, I saw that one of the center differential mount was higher on one model, there is no mods for all these models?
If it's the case it's a good news.

Quote:
older XB8 users may need the matching front bulk(XRay #354011), as the mount was designed for the truggy and new XB8EC Buggy, which uses a slightly taller center diff mount.
Is it just for the old XB8 before the XB8R?

The higher one would be the 8o8, right?

You can use either one if you replace the stock bulkhead with the corresponding one, to offset the height difference.

How about the HPI hellfire? Will the Hot bodies LSP buggy/truggy mount fit? If not, Is there any currently available that will?


Work because i gotta, play because i wanna

People here hate Nitro, I love it. I start it, run it about 50 ft from me and it dies, I go after it. Perfect exercise

Hello, any news for a motor mount for the MP9 Kyosho?

I can add here that the motor mount for GS Storm will fit the Piktor Rush 2.
