    Go to your library on photobucket. Go to the folder your pics are in. You will have this.

    Copy the line under the pic with the IMG tags on it.

    Past that into your reply on the forum.

    Make a photobucket account, then click UPLOAD, then click BROWSE FILES or drag and drop the pic, then click on the pix you uploaded, then go back to the forem and past the image code.

    Both places will yield the same result. Same IMG code.

    If ya get the top link mount on the axles to a verticle position it will also help articulation.

    No not at all it fit great.It doesn't fit right up inside it, there is a lip that covers the bottom of the chassis.
    Those upper mounts will help, I just cannot justify paying for those when something can be made for it instead.

    I added up the cost for all the Gmade R1 hop up parts at one time and it was close to 400 bucks. In my opinion way too much for what the R1 is worth.

    Certain ones are worth it others are way too pricey for my liking.

    Ya the motor is a tight fit. A short stack serviceable motor fits better.

    A Tekin FXR is always a good choice for an ESC.

    A 35 or 45 or 55 turn motor would be a good choice. 35 if your using it for a trail/casual crawler. A 45 to 55 turn if your doing some more serious crawling. There isn't a ton of wheel speed but allot of torque. The higher the turn the lower the speed and the higher the torque.

    Here is a 50 turn that is a decent price. The Atomik motors come in 50, 55 and 60 turn set ups. They are nothing super fancy but they do offer replaceable brushes and adjustable timing. They are also a little shorter than the stock non serviceable motors.

    I actually have 5 of the 55 turn motors on their way to me. I have one 55t already and it seems to do very well.
