I have bought a cheap chinese motor mount from banggood and it wiggles on my truck. No matter how hard I try to turn the screws in the truck: It isn’t sturdy enough. Probably the main reason is that the width of the motor mount is to small. I hope the video explains it all.
My solution is to buy this motormount:
but that is again €15 to be spend…
Do you have any suggestion on what I can do? I am open for your ideas!!
keep the trucks but use allen torx screws with red(permanent) loctite. use something like jb weld as well
Or buy calliber 2 truck and simple mount from @marcmt88, @Boardnamics, @TarzanHBK.
Yeah it’s crap…
I had the same mount and never used the small sharp screws. I just used bolts to fix it and it never came loose.
Only problem the mount snapped after a month…
The other mount you mentioned looks better but never used it.
you bought a terrible mount. and i’m pretty sure you installed it backwards
I will try that, thank you! and yeas I have heard from many that these mounts snap quickly, but yeah still going to try and otherwise I will buy that other mount
Hahah yes I know it is terrible. I have installed it backwards because the motor is to wide to fit in the slot so I had to do it (to em)
i did the exact same thing with mine. that means the hole spacing is wrong. get a new motor mount. and make sure it’s for 63xx motors
If you want a good mount which isn’t expensive I should really recommend the hobbyking motormount: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/motor-mount-5.html?___store=en_us
@GrecoMan ah okay, thank you for the recommendation
@bartroosen12 forgot about those! I hope they will be instock again soon
oh please for the love of god DO NOT try to put the hk mount on circular trucks. I tried it. I drilled out the holes, tapped them to m8 and torqued them with a god damn 2ft long pipe. I also made a flatspon on the truck and JB welded it. it doesn’t hold at all
Thank you guys for the feedback
I have bought some flat screws and they work already good, I haven’t realy tightend them and the mount doesn’t wiggle
But the mount is still crap, so I am going to order the one I mentioned. I will maybe cnc my own one if I have some free time
The mount I will buy looks pretty sturdy in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kIpkjT0hmw
