Default CMP P40 Warhawk 140 set up questions

I have an RCGF 20cc gas engine That has maybe a half a gallon of gas ran threw and I Really like the look of the CMP P40 Warhawk 140, But I'm not sure If the stand off motor mount design would work well with the way the CMP model is set up, It'sdesigned with the engine mount built in so all that needs to be done is to drop your side mounted engine in screw it down and move on. Has anyone removed the horizontal ply. motor mount and replaced it with stand off's.

Default RE: CMP P40 Warhawk 140 set up questions

I have done that to a lot of my cmp arfs. haven't built the P-40, but a lot of other cmp kits. I chop off the engine boxes and I always put a new 1/4 ply fire wall thats glued and strewed to the old firewall. Then I reinforce the firewall with 3/4 oz fiber glass cloth on the inside of the plane. It never failed me yet. With the engine with rear mounted carbs you cant use the original engine box. Hope this helps.
