Default 540 to 380 Motor Adapter, where can I find one like this?

Here in this thread is a 380/540 motor adapter:
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...380-motor.html

I am looking to make my 540 motor mount hold a 380 brushless motor.

Does anyone know where I can find one, or something similar? The thread itself is old and and am looking for something similar preferably a bit thinner if possible.

I dont mean to rain on your parade, but this seems an odd way of doing things.

brushless or not, a 380 size motor isnt meant for this size RC, why not just get a 'stock' 540 brushless?

It's a random project I am doing on my spare time for kicks. I just really want to know where I can get the adapter or something similar.

I read the thread, I checked out the link. The thread is old and I could not find it.

Maybe someone on here knows.

I used one of these to mount a 380 motor in my RC Dragster.

Near perfect, any others? Think that can fit in a TB-03D?

This makes it possible to use a 380 motor on any mount designed for a 540 correct?

That one in your pictured was made by a german company called BK Electronics. They stopped making them couple years back. I would be interested in one or two myself, but unsure if anyone else makes them.
