That's nice, and we finally have a true LCG motor mount with the axle height adjusters! I wanted to see this upgrade as soon as I saw the 94-98mm LCG mount. They spent a little more time with the CNC machine to reduce weight. Nice re-design...

Thanks PN


Hey Cherub,

Can my car get any lighter? I'll have to shop for batteries by weight soon.

Hi GIHOSU

Lighter :D. You need some unsprung weight to keep the car planted.:D

Can I use the stock LM Kyosho diff in this mount?

The LM shaft is longer, so to make it work you will have to add spacers on both sides of the shaft between the mount and the diff parts. I hear the stock plastic wheel bushings are the right thickness.

I put the spacers in and the width is right but I can not get the pinion gear to meet the diff. If I pull the pinion out a little bit to mesh, it ends up flying of the motor shaft. The motor shaft (Stomic USA) is not long enough to use a pinion with a set screw.

I had to use a stock diff and run the rears in a little bit. The rear is all over the place. Is there anything I can do.

At my club when we run this pod under an LM body, we use aftermarket rear rims with more offset. You can go with +3 under the Porsche or Sauber bodies, but my favorite is +2 under those and the Mazda. I'd recommend the PN machine cut 20mm rears in +2. Available is black or white. You can also go with the MantisWox adjustable offset rims. But any +2 20mm rims in the rear should do the trick!

Good luck!

If I ran the offset with radials, could I still use the LMs in the front. I have six pairs of new LM glued to wheels that I just dont want to waste. After buying a stock LM pod and diff, and then alloy PN pode and ball diff, I was pissed that u cant run a true LM rear.

If you use the standard LM rears you will be fine. All you need is two spacers. One for each side between the spur and chassis and between the left hub and chassis. What passes for the wheel bearings in a box stock AWD car are perfect. If you use the 962KH body you will be golden. If you use the Mercedes C9 you will need to create some clearance for the spur.

I am running a Mazda but they pinion cannot reach the diff when using the spacer. What am I doing wrong?

Did anyone tried to mount the tri-damper system on this pod?

I think it's possible, but needs a little mod on the side damper plates...

There are 2 sets of TDS, and one of the sets is made for this mount.

Thanks Samael! Now I see I bought the wrong one. :(

I'll try to make a adaptation with a carbon board I have here... Try to construct another plate while waiting for the new one.

take the diff apart and rotate the spur so the teeth are closer to the pod, that should give you enough. also i have found some motors to have shorter shafts, might want to see if you have one that may be alittle longer
