Also, 7075says you have to specify which cam to use but I dknt see the 5898 as an option?
See the specs of the motor mounting holes. Generally, the 1/5 scale motors are all the same. It shows on the motor dimensions in their specs.

Ok I know the 5898 has 6 holes so I'll get the 6 hole one.

It says it's out of stock, I know the owner is active on this forum, what is his name? It's like fartman or fart something

Old fart I think...or Ol fart....he will tell you the cam needed.
Hey Man,

I decided to ditch the 7075 route because hes not responding and it also seems like too much power!!

So I am going to put this motor: https://www.sagacustomrc.com/store/p2/New_Poseidon_P1527_c15_1500kv_smooth_can_designed_by_Steve_Neu.html

This thing is 106mm long which means since your motor wouldn't fit at 110mm and you moved it 4mm, this mean that this motor will be quite a tight fit. This motor is also has the same mount screw configuration so it will fit the stock motor mount. I will then get a Max6 esc and I will be good to go!!! 8s!

Okay so I need to move the front chassis brace to the right side of the drive shaft. How do I do that?
