The SCX10 Front Motor
Mount will allow you to easily mount your motor and Axial stock
transmission, OR the RC4WD AX2 transmission, on the nose of the SCX10
frame, and make tons of room in the center for a Transfer Case and
Interior for your custom build.
This process listed below WILL move
your body posts OUTward from the center by about 12mm on each side,
though. If you are in the middle of building a truck, and don't have
mount holes in the body, this is no problem, but if you are re-using an
existing body, you will need new body post holes to make this work. It
also requires a frame mounted servo, available also at GCM, and removal
of the axle mounted servo bracket.
Step 1: Remove shocks, and
then Remove the shock towers, and take the left one, mounted the SAME
WAY, but on the right side. Take the right side one, keeping the FWD leg
to the front, and mount it on the left side. That's it.
Step 2: Re-install shocks into the REARward mount holes.
3: Assemble the motor/trans on the new mount plate using the NEW plate
as a replacement for the axial motor mount plate. That's it. Take off
the stock plate, mount up the new plate, done.
Step 4: Slide the new
mount, with trans and motor etc installed, right into the position as
shown below, and insert the 4 new mount screws (provided) through the
top tower at the FWD shock position and the lower front shock tower
screw hole. DONE.
Optional parts required for #6 and #7 below:
6: Install your favorite GCM Transfer case in place of the stock center
trans. It will directly fit to the 2 outside mount holes in the
Step 7: re-install your center FWD and Rear driveshafts on
the T-Case, and then add one more same length shaft to the T-Case up to
the trans at the front.
Comes with all hex hardware and ONE front motor mount finished in BLACK.
When using the RC4WD AX2 transmission and GCM Mount, you must remove
the servo bracket from the transmission and relocate to a custom
location on your truck. A longer linkage will be required.
