which motor pod

im looking into upgrading my motor pod again.

it will be for a 70t stock class. what pod do you guys think would be best for a 70t class.
the 2 pods im looking at, at the moment are:

the reflex racing 945

or

the new PN multi mount that just came out

I like the new PN multi pod for any racing. Great design and easy to pull motor out without messing up your suspension set-up. For me, the best pod i ever tried.

I have been using both and i think it depends on what wheel base you plan to run 94-96 go with reflex. If 96-102 then go pn. I found the pn pod to not work well under 96 with the tri shock and narrow offset wheels. I modified mine to use the reflex tri shock because that setup is narrower and so far it works fine. Either one you go with will have its ups and downs but you can't go wrong with either

right now im using a 98mm murcielago.

which ever pod i get the goal in mind at the moment is to hopefully be able to go from a 98mm body for larger tracks to a 94mm for small more tight tracks.

you could do the reflex pod at 94 or 95 then use reflex's 96mm t plates and run it at 96-97. but you will have to change the tri shock as it will all move as well. if you did the pn pod the tri shock stays in the same place you may just have to mod it to run at 94. i.e shim the shock arm and damper plate up. i dont like doing this as it defeats the purpose of the lower cg the pn pod offers. if money allows i would get the pn as that will work with what you are running now then get the reflex for the shorter wheel base. just my 2 cents

I feel it will be better for what you want to do. My only complaint with it is the tri arm mount is only mounted on one end of the pod and it can flex. But other than that it will easily do 94-100. Best bet is to get the 98 mount and buy the extra 94 motor mount for it that will allow you to run it in the 94 position

i just got the Reflex 945 mount and set it up. looks good and will try it out at the track on friday. i have it set at 94mm though

i basically choose the Reflex mount b/c it was about $15 cheaper than the new PN one and i already have a Reflex front end on that car

So whats the consensus now that some time has passed?

Is the MR2395 Multi Motor Mount the best overall motor mount compared to the MR2999 98mm Reconfigurable Carbon Fiber Motor Mount for running on a 98mm MR-03 chassis?

What about the higher CG for the motor in the MR2395?

Is there a big difference in weight?

Or is the Reflex 945 motor mount the way to go?

I think that the PN has way to many screws you can loose while driving...
But the configuration is great.

I wote Reflex this time, due to simplicity and weight.

I'm going to go with one of the PN motor mounts. I alrady have one of the reconfigurable ones on my 70t car and have never had any problems with the screws. But I really would like to know if theres a big difference in CG or weight between the two PN's.

Anybody?

Hey Russ,

CG adjustable is almost the same for both mounts. The MR2395 weighs just a tic more. I like the MR2999 myself because the damper post mount is adjustable. This make thins a little eaiser when tuning. If you do decide on the MR2999 make sure you get the improved thicker bottom plate.
