Here is your Motor mount

Get a Losi 8ight-e battery tray and just drill some holes in the chasis to mount it an you will be good to go.

Those tekno mounts aren't quite as "universal" as they claim. There's a decent chance you'll have to drill new holes in the chassis plate for it. They also limit you to 540-sized motors, which is on the small side for a 1/8 buggy.

Go with the RC monster mount yakfish linked. I used one in my ravager rally conversion, and it's worth the money.

Thanks for the advice...I'll will buy the monster plate...

For the future if all goes as it should I'm thinking in a motor like this one (not the best quality...but maybe would help for the testing)..

Here is a motor that will be a decent option if you want to go a little higher on KV. I have used Tacon 2150kv motor with no problem on my Hyper. Just put a fan over it and had no problems with heat.

Looks nice...It can handle 4S....I was thinking in 6S in the future....

But, it seems to be a good option.

You have a Hyper 7 converted to brushless?...I have a Hyper 7 Pro L....I will also convert it to brushless, but in the future....

Thanks!
