I just got my hands on a new MR-03 VE with an ECO motor & the body I want to use is a 90MM.

What after market options are there for the VE that would allow it to work with a 90MM body?

I'm not finding much as the motors are not drilled & most require that.

Help! :(

x-power has a motor mount that will do 86-94 without drilled can. That is the only one off the top of my head that can do 90mm. I think there was a r246 pod that did without drilled can but am not sure if it did 90mm.

I saw the ones on their website.
That one looks like it's for a RM mount though.
I'd kind of like it as MM if possible.

Can't get to picky when your asking for 90mm and non drilled motor can :). It's not a very desirable combination for manufacturers to focus $ on.

Very true. I may just have to actually shell out for some more bodies again soon. =/

It would be cheaper to just buy a drilled motor. The new pn motors have more drag brake and there is a 5500 kv if i am not mistaken. It may be a little more powerful than the eco but you could always take some hi-point out. Plus if you get a drilled motor you won't be limited to just that one motor mount and the wheelbase options it has. say two months from now you want turn it from 90mm to 98mm (assuming you already have both pods)you could just change pods rather then buy the other non drilled motor mount. personally i prefer the pn motor mounts and have never really seen one of those non drilled aftermarket mounts really work that well but thats just my .02$;)

He needs to run the eco motor so he can run with us in our stock class :)

My biggest question to Ryan is why 90mm? We in the club know you have plenty of 98 mm bodies to use and the power of the eco motor would be really difficult keeping a short wheelbase on its wheels unless you plan on something like 911gt1 or F40.

There is always the possibility that you find someone skilled at drilling the can (not it).

Well, my previous "Stock" body was a 90MM F40 & I wanted to keep running that one.

I do have two other bodies left in my arsenal, perhaps I'll whip one of them out. They are both 98MM. I still run into the issue with the motor pods that I have not accepting a non-drilled can, but heck, who needs hop up parts when the stock one's work just fine...

There are shops like MC3 that drill the stock motors for a reasonable fee. I've not done it myself though.

I'm surprised TheSteve didn't say to just use the plastic HM or RM stocker!

How does the Atomic 5000kV motor compare? The one which ships installed on the AMZ.

Hah, so true. I love the plastic mounts!

My experience with it, it was a stronger motor than the Eco VE motor. The Kyosho blue VE motor is a great intro to brushless motor and currently my favorite.

Both the Atomic 5000kv and the PN 5500kv are way more punchy than the Eco Tune Kyosho...I have th PN 5500 and it is faster than my mod brushed car.

Nice to see Ryan accepting plastic parts for a change.:p
