I'm converting my R30v1 to a 50. The holes on the engine mount are wider than the holes on the engine. I use the spacers to center the engine on the mount (per instructions) but the holes won't line up. I have the latest TT50 engine with the plastic throttle arm and the engine mount that came with the convertion kit. What needs to be done.

Thanks,
Cliff

where did you get the engine? are you using the silver colored mount? if it doesnt fit, it means your engine is WD. look on the bottom of the engine, you should see a mark that says "WD".

the gun-metal colored mount is the one that fits the WD TT50 engines.

Contact ACE and tell them your situation. They sent me the correct one at NO CHARGE in about 3 days.

nothing that a dremel tool can't fix. I ground my engine holes to fit.

As to why TT/ACE did this, who knows, I bet it's something to do with
gray market stuff. To keep sellers from PULLING TT's from ARF kits and selling them off, and putting the competitors engines in.
