    FLM Traxxas or King Heads Motor Mount

    Can't find the King Headz in Stock anywhere. Saw the FLM and was considering that one. I have searched and found a few answers but no direct comparisons. Anyone.....

    The FLM should work just as well. They both use the same size oversized bearing.

    The Kingheadz will be back in stock on the 18th according to their site though.
    I use the KH and it;s been a godsend

    I have the full FLM kit and love it. If you are running the center diff go with the FLM set.

    I check bearings every 3-4 runs now.

    Thanks for the replies. I have the King Headz coming. Shipped today. I also have the longer drive shaft covers coming from Traxxas. Should solve the issues.

    It won't fix the problem 100%, you will still have the issue of dirt coming in through the hole in the front of the chassis.

    There is also a small gap under the motor mount(slit in chassis to allow the mount to pivot), with direct access to the bearing and driveshaft area.

    Got the front one covered with Alum. Duct Tape. I will keep an eye out for the slit by the motor. Thanks!

    I think that both are equally as good, same concept and bearing size.
