Reminder, the MM2 rear end is now a stock rear end option and permitted for use on 94mmm, 98mm and 102mm wheelbase in our Kyosho Stock class. The part number is MZ217 and will be available at Hobby Works.

Any feedback on how these new mounts did?

A good number have switched over already. Lets guys move back to 98mm and get the same damper as 102mm. It deserves a good tutorial to make the switch as you need to clean up the motor wires and cap for brushed cars. It's a PITA to assemble compared to the rest of stock motor pods.

A tutorial would be nice. I think this pod will be great for clubs that want to run stock parts. Will allow a lot more bodies to be run competitively.

I just installed mine. I had it installed on another chassis but sold it (not related to the motor mount).

I installed mine this past weekend. I'm impressed with the obvious difference in performance. The damper makes a difference. We've been racing stock class for years now and the only way to be competitive is to run the LM because of the damper. The MM2 gives you the same flat dampening performance but for 98mm. The mount is a bit of a pain to put together and not as easy to switch gearing as with the MM. I noticed on the bell side of the motor the shaft was rubbing on the cover. I pulled it and filed a notch. I also noticed that if you run a 6t pinion be prepared to remove the motor caps and rearrange the motor wires so they don't hit the drive shaft. You can run an 8t or 9t pinion which helps but you'll still want to remove the caps and re route the wires.

We allow aftermarket t-plate, ball bearings and tires otherwise the rest is stock. With a well broken in stock motor and a 9t it's fairly quick for our 3L tracks. It's easy to be consistent as well since it's really just fast enough but not too fast.

Great info! Thanks! Arch, if you want to move these MM2 posts to a separate thread, that might make it easier for others to find.

LHS plans to get some of these in. Couple of questions. Has anyone tried it in 94mm? Feedback? Will the damper that comes with the MM2 work with the original MM pod? i.e. Does the shock mount on MM pod line up with opening in damper plate to allow old pod with new damper? This might avoid the motor fitment and gear change issues raised.

good question on fitment to standard pods. I never thought to try. I'm sure the benefit extends to 94mm however you seldom see that used so may take awhile before you get feedback.

agreed, the beauty of this pod is that it again opens up stock style classes to more than just 102mm and those who doggedly stuck with 98mm, 94mm to create a more level playing field which is awesome.
