Question AX10 Motor Plate/Motor Mounting Problems

Hey guys, quick question for you all:

Has anyone else had problems when mounting up motors onto the Axial black aluminum motor plate, in which the pinion gear end of the motor would not fit through the motor plate???

I'm building a "scale" crawler and when I installed an AX10 transmission and went to bolt up an old HPI 55t crawler king motor I had laying around, the pinion gear would fit through the hole in the motor plate, but the part on the motor that extends out and is supposed to fit through the motor plate does not.

Is it just my case that this is happening with this HPI 55t motor or has it happened to other people?

Thanks for the help in advance guys and have a great Thanksgiving.

-Mike

The pinion gear won't fit through, or the bearing housing on the motor is too big and will not fit in the cut out of the motor plate?

I understand what your asking. Yes you need to use an adapter plate like what is used on the CR-01's or just get a motor with a flat face.

Yeah guys, the bearing housing will NOT FIT, but the pinion gear WILL FIT.

Sorry for any confusion.

SO THE BIG QUESTION: What motors could you guys suggest? I have an RC4WD Outcry ESC that can run down to a 30t motor.

SO what motors have you all ran on the AX10 transmission/motor plate combo that fit nicely?

(Only reason for using the HPI 55t was to get it moving/testing, as I want to run a 30 or 35t in the end.)

I have a brushless Goat motor that has a flat face on it but have also tried an Integy 75t matrix and some older motors (Orion Pilot and Kyosho) and they all fit so it must be just the particular mototr your using.
