Default Engine Mounts.

I have an HPI RS4-3 with an OS 18TZ engine on it, I will be using Center Force (Centax) Clutch Kit but I will need engine mounts that will allow my engine to move. I know someone had told me about Wolfpack, Help me out.
Thanx RCU Members!

The chassis should be slotted to allow the mounts to slide for different size spur gears. Look on the bottom of the chassis.

If I am not mistaken, the centax clutch is longer, and reuires that the engine be mounted further back to allow for this distance. If this is the case, you will need to purchase different mounts, likely a set manufactured specifically for your car. Search eBay or Yahoo or some search engine that will point you to manufacturers.

In the event that no one makes mounts for this application, you'll have to search for another car's mounts that will fit yours.

The site is wolfpack radicals. They have mounts that allow different mounting positions, but not sure which ones you will need. If you go to the site, I'm sure you can find the mounts you need. If your still not sure, email them and they will tell you what you need.
