Updating an MR03 with Tuning Parts

New goodies have arrived today... will try to post some pictures of a "new" MR03 chassis I'm building.

So I ordered the new motor mount from PN Racing. The V5 LCG 98mm motor mount. I was pretty excited to see it mounted in real life.

This comes in the box, together with mounting instructions.


Unpacked machined parts:


Aluminium parts mounted:


Bottom plate attached:


In total 3 carbon parts are mounted on 3 aluminum parts:

The third aluminium part is where you mount the motor on (it's laying on the table on the previous photo).


The motor first gets mounted with 1 countersunk screw on the small plate, and then this assembly gets mounted with 2 longer screws on the main motor mount part.

Unfortunately one countersunk screw of M2x4 was missing in my package and also both M2 screws for mounting the motormount on the T-bar was missing. This is a pitty who want to upgrade plastic chassis with this mount.
Although I have a lot of screws laying around, I missed these, so I decided to order a pack in the webshop (in France).

Does anyone know why there is some space machined away on the bottom plate?

More to come later :-)

Looks good! It always feels like Christmas when I come home from work and see those tiny cardboard boxes. That new design looks good. I hope they come out with a top piece that allows it to be used for 102 mm as well. I'm not sure about that machined spot. If it was in the rear I would guess it was for spur gear clearance, but it is not like you would need a pinion that big . . . I hope it works well. Have fun!

The machined spot on the carbon plate looks like it is to allow a screw to go through the hole above it.

edit: indeed is for more secure motor attachment.

Now it's time to show the chassis where we will start from, just a simple MR03 used for stock fun, in RM config as you can see.



Stripped from the suspension, motor pod parts, and prepared the wide front suspension parts to get started with this tuned MR03 in the works.
