My RR top arms don't fit into the recesses so i can't mount the arms at the moment...

Is there enough material to grind without making a through void to the servo area?

Grind carefully. :) You should have enough unless you're trying to run stupid amounts of camber.

Thanks for the advice Brian...I decided to grind off some material of the RR top arm instead. I felt that speed wise ( car built for tight/technical mini 96 course) it was unlikely to cause arm failures with a tiny bit less of material there.

Next question: anyone have good success with wiring of the motor for a 90mm midmount motor? I could use some ideas....

Anybody ever try 92mm mid mount? It seems that 90mm doesn't have much forward flex so I thought about using a RR 96mm t plate to give the pod a bit more space to the back of the chassis...

Thoughts anyone?

You never actually need all that much forward flex in the rear pod, so you'll be fine with 90mm. :) 92mm would be fine too but I've never tried it.

Ive never tried 92mm, but I do want to. If you do try it, let us know how you like it. What motormount are you planning to use?

I wound up getting the PN 90mm mid pod. I am intrigued by our conversation about that 90mm side spring thread so in the future I may get into side spring usage. I'm building a 94mm car using color0's creative side spring mount so once i get grips on that I may get fully into side spring usage.

I'll let you know about 92mm soon...my next gtg is in Dec.

Got mine setup with atomic 90mm MM and it feels just right to me.

Me too! The PN 90 MM mount took me to the track record with a 50T PN motor.
