This is a followup thread for my original post where I got some feedback from others on my mount design. I am at the point now where I am ready to set up shop. For the past few weeks I have been cutting them non-stop in the garage, ordering parts, and refining my process.
Some cinematic shots
Features: Machined 6061 T6511 Aluminum for low weight and cooling properties Fits caliber II trucks only (more in the future) Adjustable idler adjusts belt tension for reduced skipping Cross motor hole design accepts all sizes of motors Stainless steel fasteners for longevity Included 12mm HTD5M 320-325mm belt 45 degrees of angle adjustability. Can be mounted in reverse
This mount was designed for maximum torque transfer while maintaining compatibility for many setups. The unique adjustable idler is a game changer. The use of an idler increases efficiency by requiring less belt tension for the equivalent torque transfer through your belt by engaging more teeth in the pulleys. It’s ability to adjust position allows for a cross slot design for the motor holes. This mount can therefore mount all sizes of motors! In addition, it’s angle adjustability gives a wide range of customization for your build. Strategically placed set screws lock the clamp in place. Loctite/threadlocker for all screws is recommended as always!

Ordering Details Everything you see above is $40 plus shipping. Fill out this form to order yours today! ORDER HERE I will send an invoice to the Paypal email you give. Don’t worry about the fee, it’s on the house!
I am located in San Diego, CA. I ship through USPS to the USA and International. I do combined shipping, so the shipping fee applies for the maximum number of mounts I can ship through that service.
Due to the frustration on the forum caused by delays in some purchases, I will only send the invoice to you once I guarantee I have the mount ready to ship. This means there will never be a time you pay and wait. Your mount should be at your doorstep within a few days after you pay the invoice I send. Your tracking number will be uploaded automatically on Paypal and PMed to you on this forum.
Thanks for checking out my post, I am curious to how everyone will like them
If you have any questions regarding compatibility, don’t hesitate to comment or drop me a PM.
