I have one hanging on the wall here at home.

So if I understand this correctly, this allows a little lower motor inclination when using the 90 mm mount on a 94 mm wheelbase?

Nice stuff again Philip. I remember you talking to me about this in the PN N.J. race.;):)

Philip: How about 94mm with lay down motor pod? ;)

For lay down 94mm motor mount it is really tough space, but we will try.

Very nice solely for the fact that we can get even more milage out of this mount.

I don't have a 90mm mount. My question is if I got this mount, and ran it at 94mm, what are the positive/negatives to the 90mm at 94mm, compared to the 94mm/98mm mount? I would consider buying the 90mm with the 94mm for the shear versatility, but performance wise, would it be as good as the 94mm/98mm mount? Is this clear enough?

Thank you

I was wondering the exact same thing.

Also can you run this at 90mm lets say with a mini cooper?

Cody, judging by the pics, it wont have enough room at 90mm. The motor will hit the chassis. This is to lower CG for 94mm use.

One advantage for 94mm use, is that there is more clearance to the chassis than with the original ML or ATM v5 mounts. It comes with a DDS plate, you just need the discs post and springs. I see it mainly as a way to use one mount for 90mm and make it more competetive at the 94mm setting. If we could use wide rear tires at the PN race that I used the mount at, I am sure I would have been pulling equally fast laps as I did with my 2wd stock, 2wd pan stock and F1. I just didnt have enough grip, but wasnt too far off. Its a good mount, and this just makes it even better when using it for 94mm. Rather than having to buy another mount.

Would I buy this mount just to run 94mm, no. But would I run 94mm with the mount, sure. The biggest downside, is that the body must have enough clearance to clear the DDS plate and holder...

Thanks EMU, that's what I was feeling about it. I'm not sure I'll ever run 90mm, so it's probably not for me.

I have 2 of the mounts.....I will use the stand up mount at 90mm along w the narrow 015 front end....

when we run 94mm I will change just the motormount and if I run narrow bodies the 015 front end stays on....if we use wide bodies I will put a 020 front end on....The motormount just made our dedicated 90mm mr02 chassis more versatile.....and yes you can even go out to 98mm with the rear pod.....

Look at the design of the pod itself it is not a lcog but for most racers you can make it work.....It adjusts easily and makes the cars perform.....

I don't know if this the proper thread for my question. I have two 94MM MR02-RM cars, a Esso Supra and Epson NSX. Both of the motor mount clips broke and I got tired of looking for the replacement. So my question is this PN 90 Mount lay-Down Plate the adapter I should get in order to get the chassis to fit these bodies?
