Default Conversion Motor mounts for 1/8 applications

Is there any other places besides rc monster to buy a motor mount for a 1/8 buggy?

There is [link=http://www.finedesignrc.com/]Fine Design[/link], Chris will sell you either a full conversion or any of the parts seperatly. Or another choice is RCU member [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/community/profile.cfm?memid=40537&section=profile]RURC[/link] he has done many conversions. Those are the 2 others I can think of that do buggy conversions but I am sure someone will offer you more options.

RURC makes them himself. He also strives to make all of his motor mounts so they will bolt up using existing hardware and no modifications needed to the chasis. PM or email him he would be happy to discuss his work with you.

I see.I really like the motor clamps from Neu but cant seem to find them anywhere. The kit from RC product desigin is really nice but at 225 $ that more than i payed for the car.

Can the RC-Monster motor mount be fliped so the motors not behind the sterring servo anymore
