The picture in CT's blog is RR's new prototype mount. Im surprised it took some one so long to comment about it here.

It looks great in person, and I would be happy to have it on my car as it stands. CT told me recently though, that there aer a few revisions to be done at the factory. If the revisions come out right, we could see the pod very soon, but if they aren't up to RR quality standards, it could take another run, which could mean more time. I am glad CT is taking the time to get this thing just perfect before releasing it, as I only want to have to buy one (well one for each car, lol). It also means a little bit more time with very limited details. I am sure RR doesnt want a bigger production company jumping onto their ideas before they hit the market!

I have seen, and held the mount in my hand. It IS nice! The simplicity of the design makes it very appealing to me. Wheel base changes will be done with four screws and you wont have to take much of anything apart to do it. No removal of the motor, diff, wheels, or even T-plate.

Thanks guys.

Yes, the design is complete. I am awaiting confirmation from the factory so that we can hopefully have it out by late January. If not, due to lunar new year, it will probably be March

Yes, it is. I can confirm that for you. As stated, it is still a work in progress. The prototype has proven itself in my eyes.

Hello CT/ReflexRacing,

I saw that on the RR website the RR MR03 replica chassis now lists the new "Reflex 94-96-98 motor pod" on the spec sheet - Is this badboy motor mount available soon? I understand the need to keep new products private, but I am really itchin' to check this pod out. If it is available soon, when can you post some pics and what-not? Thanks! Looking forward to it

The pod will be available soon. I don't have a date yet, but the pre-orders will go on the site at the end of the month. Due to Chinese New Year Holiday, there will be a slightly longer than usual production turn-around.

The pictures are on the blog at the site.

The Reflex Racing Mini-Z Adjustable Wheelbase Motor Mount is now available for pre-order in all colors in the Shop. Note that the date listed is just a placeholder pending a more accurate ETA from Reflex.

Also forgot to mention that we DO have the screws to go with the Motor Mount, so everything will ship out as a complete package.

I know, it's not good enough that you just released a new product, I'm asking about option/upgrades for it already. Anytime frame for the part(s) so we can do 98mm with this? Thanks.

You can do 98mm with it now. Slide it back a set of holes just like the typical 94MM mounts that are already out. From my understanding, you can run 94-100 in 2mm increments with the kits as it is sold. At 100 you may not have much reverse travel on the damper post...similar to running 96 with a 94mm damper plate.
