This thing is pure sex... I will probably carry it instead of the Atomic and only carry Atomic MM 94mm pod.

It's good to see PN release a new MM mount. I see now that they have adopted atomic's adjustable shock mount. I also like the fact that they include an alloy body shock mount as well. For my atomic's I've always had to buy the alloy shock mount seperately.

Also, looking under the motor screw holes, have they just cut out that space to lighten it? It doesn't appear that you could mount the motor an alternative way there. hmmm....

Looking good I say...

the whole thing is just a copy of the Atomic mount which was released like half a year ago.... :rolleyes:

Yes, it will be better since you can adjust the disk position.

Have to change the disk damper, as the overall length (with this new pod) is shorter.

Actually, this design organally come from Japan Company Atlas, the best point of this 'kind' pod, it is a 'MM' design and have a shorter overall length, thus it can use most of the 01/015 body.

I don't think it's made by PN. It's not listed on the PN homepage and not listed as being made by PN on the rcKenon page.

are you all so wrapped up in the details that no one noticed RUF thinks a MM pod is pure sex? The man has deep seated issues...DEEP SEATED issues. Sorry RUF its time for an intervention... :eek:

I am a dealer for both PN and Atomic. Here are a few things to get straight:

1) Atomic offers MM pods in standard 98mm and a SHORTER one in 94mm. This is pretty revolutionary. This new 94mm pod requires a shorter damper plate.

2) The new PN pod I posted is 98mm for MM. It is NOT shorter. It is a similar design to the existing Atomic 98mm. The finish and quality of it is higher than the Atomic in my opinion.

3) It is listed as a "Kenon" product, but Kenon and PN are very closely related. In essence it is a "PN" pod. The Kenon site is usually updated faster than the PN site, hence why the new Saber motor is not up on the PN site yet either. I apologize for the confusion.

acyf - Do you have pics of this Atlas MM pod? I haven't been able to find it.

ruknd - I have a lot more vices that require intervention before R/C... :D

davisdavis - I agree that the Atomic MM pod is a superior design compared to the old PN version. The finish of the PN parts is just nicer in my opinion. This new PN MM pod matches the Atomic pod on the design level and hopefully have the same PN finish (we'll see tomorrow!). I also like the cutouts on the motor plate side better than the more cosmetic "fins" on the Atomic.

I want one of the atlas pods too. Here's a pic though:

Only one stiffness h plate available for the Atlas pod and its soft! No good.

Also to let you know, that Atlas pod is 94mm as well with two side plates securing the motor and a sliding action to adjust gear mesh, no need for predrill motor can holes.

Not too impressed with the Atlas design. Looks over-thought and poorly implemented. Trying too hard to be 1/12-style. It could work well, but the existing designs are very functional and simpler (which in my book is always better for racing).

For 94mm MM, you'll need the Atomic 94mm MM pod. I'll have those in a couple of weeks.

For 94mm RM you have a lot more options. I have the new PN RM pod available.

94mm MM and shorter disk dampner plate is what I refer to.Just want to experiment with the new ideas

you can only run long bodies with the 94mm plate and mount. i.e. nsx, jgtc skyline, 360modena, clkdtm, etc
