great work man. I can't believe you milled it yourself. Did you do it by hand or CAM?

very impressive!

what software did you use to model the motor pod?

what is an estimate of the cost, material/time to mill?

it looks like you could easily reduce weight but further cut outs.

Is that an adjustable gear mesh? It looks great!

it is not CNC just hand mill . since the small milling machine can cut 0.01mm .it is easy to keep everything with in tolerance.but it take a long time to make .took me 35 hour labour (around $110) to finish.

it can use 6t and 7t gear but i can make it fit from 7t-9t

this motor mount keep all the aerodynamic (rear diffuser = greater downforce) and the 5g add to the rear help a lot to keep the rear tire sticking to the ground.now i can make a turn with 75% throttle and it wouldnt spin out. i just love driving my F-1 now and my mr-02 is just seating on the shed.
