greetings honda... welcome to the forums...

my question to you is... what body do you really want to run?
your answer will dictate what type of motor mount you will be using for that type of body...

as mentioned above, kyosho produced quite a number of motor mounts...
hm - high mount
rm - rear mount
mm - mid mount
lm - low mount (usually used for le mans type of bodies)
mm2 - mid mount version 2 recent release

check out these official kyosho links for their part numbers and what they look like
click here for hm, rm, mm and lm motor mounts
click here for mm2 motor mount

do take note that it was mentioned that the lm motor mount is a bit wider, thus you will need a to use a corresponding gear or ball diff for that particular mount.

each mount does have some pro's and con's... and depending on a particular driving style, some may love or hate a particular mount, or may have some preference of one mount over another... or if you are open enough, learn how to drive each motor mount according to the characteristic of each motor mount... this will help develop your driving skill to a certain extent... and may prove to be fun finding out which mount will fit your driving style...

i find the mm2 a bit promising, but you might be limited in choosing bodies as the disc suspension and top shock is pretty high. so look for a body that has a high roofline... and test fit... if the top shock is giving you problems you can opt to run without it.

there are also some other third party motor mounts that are made out of aluminum...
check this guide... a bit out of date though but still relevant... click here

good luck and hope this helps....

Thanks

Superficially yes, but if you lie them side by side, you will see that the new arms have a bit of a "V" shape to them, while the stock arms are more flat. Thus, when using the same springs, the new arms provide a bit more natural droop and camber with all else being equal. I'll try to remember to grab some pictures later...
