Default RE: 1/8 inch Carbon / Nomex

If you are going to mount an outrunner to the firewall, I am strongly suggesting not use carbon nomex. I thought that the 1/4 would be better than the 1/8 inch. To my suprise, the more I tightened the motor onto the firewall, the more cracking noise I heard. When i was finished tightening the motor my the spinner had moved 1/8 of an inch off the nose[]. Had to tear out the firewall and use carbon/balsa/carbon. Now no crunch when tightening the screws, precious. If I had only listened to Chris in the beggining I would have saved myself two hours.
