Default Comanche Alloy Parts

Hello all,
I would just like to know if they make through Carson, Smartech etc. both a alloy gear plate, and a large alloy engine mount? If not would any of the FG alloy parts suit? as there are a three options with the marder MT and ST I am unaware which to get.

Thanks in advance

Mick

The FG gear plate and large engine mount will not fit. The pinion gear is a different diameter so all the spacing on the gear plate and layshaft is different.

The FG small engine mount works great. I run the Duratrax plastic large mount and FG small alloy mount. I don't have any engine movement at all.

If you did get the FG alloy gear plate you would also have to abandon the stock rear brake because the stock rear brake attaches to the gear plate.

I have not seen a clone-sized alloy gear plate.

A nice little thing which I think is a must for the monster models, is the alloy gear protector.

There are these from FG-hopups, they are direct replacement for the duratrax firehammer buggy.

I don't want to hijac this thread but i have a firehammer clone and I am unsure which motor is in it. I seen that when i went to [link]http://www.bigboystoysandhobbies.com/monster_truck1[/link] they have the clutches for the cy and Zenoah. When i looked closer I noticed that my clutch shoes are held on with the bolt style instead of the allen style screw. Does this mean that my motor is a Zenoah? I bet I am not that lucky. Is there any difinitive way to tell them apart,
sorry about chiming in

Duratrax's engines are the CY 23CC.

Good question.
I tried contact with them last week but no answer.
The same with Crazy nut racing.
