Hey everyone, I've ran into a problem while switching over from the MR015 to the MR02, I have a carbon fiber T Plate that I was using on my MR015. However while trying to install my MR02 motor pod I realized that the body doesn't fit now??? Therefore my question is are MR015 T Plates longer than MR02 ones?

Thanks,
Elvis

when switching from a rear motor pod to a mid motor unit you will need to switch to a mid motor T-plate.

the difference in length comes from different pod styles. If you have an RM t-plate (meant for a rear motor pod) it will be longer than a MM t-plate (meant for a mid motor mount). If you just switch the same pod with the different chassis check to see if you mounted it in the right holes in the base of the chassis.

Alright thanks guys, its definitely because I went from a Rear Mount to a Mid Mount. How can you tell the difference between a Rear Mount and Mid Mount T Plate?

t-plates for the mr02 mm motor mounts are shorter than the t-plates for mr015 rm motor mounts... the work around would to just simply use the rm motor mount with the mr015 t-plate on the mr02 as suggested by cowboysir… what body will you be using on the mr02? the front wheels sticking out of the body may be an issue since the track width of the mr02 is wider than the mr015 so purchasing rims with the proper offset may be in order... not a real biggie since there are lots of rim options available... hope this helps:D
