View Full Version : Mid-mount... is it possible??

2002.09.21, 04:48 PM
Saw this on the Kadawa M24...

Can it be done on a Z? I bet that would solve the stupid (and ridiculous) spinouts that happen...

EDIT: Measured up stuff... If someone could make me a 42 or 43mm H-plate (minimum length) with the standard holes on each end, I think the motor could just BARELY fit on the long chassis and low motor mount setting.

ScottMcLeod, yes, Squat already makes a MidShip conversion kit.

OH! How much? Z'man?

(the only kits you have are the MRS and 360 w/ the kit included)

ScottMcLeod, they do make a conversion kit w/out body, but we're thinking of making our own kit in fact, so keep an eye out for that, as we probably wouldn't stock the Squat in that case.

How is the handling of the car with the midhip conversion kit?

I am currently having big problems with oversteer du to a far overpowered Mini-zracer motor. Midship mounting of the motor would probably then just make it worse as it transfers weight forward on the car. Am I making sense here??

I'll be able to tell you guys in a bit...

I just won the bid for a Squat MR-S on eBay. (20$USD instead of 40$)

I've also made my own home-made mid-mount plate. We'll be able to see the difference :-)

Is this the one from the guy who didn't realize it was a lexan shell and who originally bought it from the shop?

*cough* uhh... yes. :p

It's actually kinda funny how I got it. I had to be a bastard on ebay to keep other bidders away, but it worked out in the end. I'm happy that it's lexan... I'm starting to get frustrated at the scratches on my (previously) nice looking GT-R....
