Hello guys! I cant decidir about this 2 product compatibily… I have got the Hobbyking motor mount but i cant decidit is the Caliber 2 fifty 10’ compatible with the hobbyking one? I read a lot of topic here but someone write its compatible but someone write its not compatible… Can someone help me?
You have to file the rounded part of the hanger but yes it will fit.
Yes i did it but i just wanted hear a “yes its compatible because i use it”
Yes its compatible and I use it, on lots of setups and here is a picture. I file one side of the inside of the clamp…
Is it 180mm?
Yes, 32degree rear on dewedged randel 35 baseplate, front 55degrees on wedged 50 cal base. Zealous ceramic, refly 97mm…
Do you use any glue (loctite)?
I use loctite blue in anything I don’t want coming undone…yes…don’t we all?
I tried a lot of glue but okay if you say that glue is good i belive you
glue? no no I use loctite in screws I don’t wish to come loose…
Compatible. Using it without filing.
Ok, so you put it on right, and this side is cool, all good, two sides touching…
But this side isn’t cool, only one side touching and it’s a nipple at best…gap is on the left, and it’s HUGE!!
So I take that piece to the grinder cus it’s faster than filing it down, but it gets hot, be careful, ouch!
OMG now it fits! Use this picture as a guide or grind and test fit over and over as needed. You do not need to grind the nipple further than the area it protrudes from.
Oh this particular cast caliber truck, a cal2 50, I needed to also file this small section on the hanger to allow for a perfectly aligned belt.
