Just wanted to give you some background so you can answer that question yourself in the future.
I just converted a mugen myself. Check out the tread in my signature. :) good luck with all your rigs!!
Oh yeah.....I knew not to mess with the motor wires. I just wanted to shorten the ESC wires down a little because they are just to long.
But Brain.....kind a glad you popped in here. You are using the RCM steering servo mount I see in your conversion. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction of where you got the actual mounts for the servos that go underneath the RCM mount?
Actually.....that's only 1/2 my problem......even after I mount the servo to the RCM mount.....I can't figure out how to actually get it attached to the chassis. The bolt holes drilled out on the mount don't line up with anything on my chassis. I'm thinking maybe it was made for an MBX-5. Not sure on that.....but your mount looks exactly like mine.
I "think" what I'll end up doing is cutting down my old servo tray to just fit my steering servo. I have to anyways because the motor sits right about where the old brake servo used to be.
