Default Mugen Engine Mount

Hi Guys,

Im buying a Mugen MBX5T in the near future and was curious if anyone knows where i can get a hold of a engine mount that will raise the engine enough to allow me to get a pullstart on the engine, its a LRP .30 truggy spec engine.

Thanks in advance, Dave.

It would probably be easier (and better in the long run) to get a backplate for that LRP and switch to a starter box. However, if it were me, I'd just fab up some spacers out of aluminum tubing.

I have no clue. You'll have to mock it up and take some measurements. Probably gonna be around 10mm at most.

This is my MBX5T with a pull start version Picco P3 .28. I use a losi spin start backplate in stead of the pullstart just a preference. You will need to cut the back of the engine mount for it to work or get a two peice engine mount. Good luck worled for me.

Look out for that kind of engine mount: www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/products_id/1850/n/Mugen-Engine-mount-X5, they will allow you to mount pullstart or spin start engines (there is nothing in the back impeding the engine to fit perfectly).
Don't buy mbx6t 2 pieces engine mount, they will not fit 5t...
And it's a pity to wreck, cut, drill, etc..the Mugen's original one piece engine mount, it is preety expensive </p>

A Strobe mount may solve your dilemma.
