Slot.it Long Inline Motor Mount 0.5mm Offset Boxer/Flat
This motor chassis completes the long inline series. Compatible with DTM frames(side flap removed) by Slot.It. Hard type chassis are suitable for high torque motors to avoid vibrations that such kind of motors induce on softer supports. Offset by 0.5mm.
The Slot.It motor mounts allow easy installation of short and long can type motors configured as inline, sidewinder and anglewinder. The 'offset' concept enables upwards displacement of the rear shaft with regards to the bottom plane of the chassis and to the motor drive shaft, thus lowering the stance of the back of the car, to fine tune the ground clearance depending on type of track, wheels, tires and motor, and desired model behavior. 'Offset' is the veritcal displacement, in mm, between the center of the rear axle and of the motor shaft. A further advantage of the 'Offset' principle is that the rear wheel can be properly positioned, verticallyk inside the wheel arch of the bodywork.
In the 0.0mm versions the motor shaft and the rear axle lie on the same plane, whereas in the 'offset' versions, unique to Slot.It, the rear axles is offset upwards, thus lowering the center of gravity of the car and increasing the magnetic traction which either the car magnet of the motor exert on the track. Available offset motor mounts range from 0.0 to 1mm, depending on the selected motor mount type.
Another unique feature of the Slot.It motor mount are the self aligning gimbal bushings. Traditional cylindrical bushings cannot compensate for chassis torsion and bad alignment; Slot.It spherical bushings self-adjust themselves to guarantee the minimum possible friction and can be made with optimal tolerances to eliminate excessive play.
