  • Mosler question

    A quick question and hope it’s not a dumb one so sorry in advance if it is. I recently purchased my 1st nsr Mosler and I am a bit confused at the pod. First off is the motor mount has no screw to secure the motor and the motor rocks back and forth and also the rear bushing are super loose and rock all over the pace. Is it supposed to be like this or am I missing something?? I am assuming it’s a bad pod but I am a newbie w the Mosler.... Thanks again for any help and hope everyone is having a nice Thanksgiving! 🦃

    Well just checked my NSR AudiR8 with sidewise pod and there are no screw holes, however as I recall when I set it up the motor and axle bushings were pretty snug. Not seen loose bushings though, they should snap in snuggly. I run a little dab of E6000 on chassis across tops of bushings to reduce chance of popping out. It’s easily peeled off for bushing replacement, but if there are really loose I’d contact NSR or wherever you bought it from.

    This car originally came with angle winder pod and it has holes and screws. It runs faster laps for me with the angle winder and long can setup.

    Edit, I also run small dabs of E6000 across top of motor mount and sometimes down one side of motor to keep them from rocking in the mounts even with screws.

    OMG stupid smartphone spelling and grammatical errors lol.

      Thx so much for the help. I will try and secure everything and see what happens....

    I've never had an NSR motor pod where the bushings were loose, did you buy it new or used? A motor that rocks is easily fixed with a little Shoe Goo. A loose motor will cause hop during acceleration.

      Agreed, but I prefer E6000, it's like ShoeGoo but is much easier to remove later for maintenance.

      I've never tried E6000, where do you get it?

    Thanks for the replies as I really appreciate it. I bought it new the other day and yes, lots of hop and those loose bushings are crazy! Not sure what’s going on as all the other nsr’s I have are amazing! This one not so much.....

      if you can exchange it do that before you mess with it. should come with a return policy from a reputable seller.

      You can drill some holes in the NSR pod to accept motor screws.........a very worthwhile improvement !!

      Aligning and gluing the bushings is also very important, and, you can go one step (a very big step ) forward with a Sloting Plus axle tube.......this eliminates the independent flexing of the bushing uprights, which causes, binding of the rear axle, mesh issues and chatter.

      Cheers

        I am not at home at the moment, so, I can't give you a definitive answer, when I return (2/3 days) I will report back..........are you using the triangular sidewinder NSR pod ??..........the different NSR pods do require different length Sloting Plus axle tubes.

        I did not know about the axle tubes. But I do now! lol

        Yes, the NSR Triangle Anglewinder pod. Thank you!

      That’s kind of weird. I thought all the new NSR Sidewinders came with holes drilled in the pods for motor screws?

        The new new ones do, but you will still find plenty of the non drilled ones in cars.

        Isn’t his car the ‘new’ Martini Mosler?

        It is, but that does not mean too much.......have a look at the NSR site for this car,....the sidewinder version has the triangular pod and different chassis plate, this is the same as the info/picture on Pendle site...........Ragtopmans car has a different pod/chassis plate.
        "Assembly line variances anyone" ??

      Yep, brand spankin’ new Martini version. I guess I will either drill a hole or glue the motor in the pod and glue those really loose bushings.... thanks for all the replies and again hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!🦃🦃🦃

        Went to the nsr website and found some info. On the bottom of the pod there should be an M2-3 mm but it was missing. Put one in and the motor is secure!👍🏻 Now on to those bushing...

          Never seen an NSR chassis with the one lone hole on the bottom like that either.

            Ya thats a strange one. For it being a brand new car and livery. I am going to pick up those martini moslers. One side winder the other angle winder. And the pink pig as an angle winder.

              Maybe skip the EVO3 SW version and go w the EVO5 SW as that should have a better pod and front axle adjustments. I should have bought that one instead...
              Good luck as they really are great cars!
              I am trying to resist buying the pink pig but I will probably cave in and get that one as well😃

            Here's a pic of my stock Mosler. The pod has 2 screw holes with one screw fitted. The chassis has front axle height adjustment.

              Yep, that’s how some of my other nsr’s are but I bought I guess a weird version of it with the different pod and no front axle adjustments with the EVO3 SW... still runs pretty fast now that I secured things better. Thx for the pic!

          • #13
            All the NSR SW pods I've seen have a small hole at the bottom that lines up with a similar hole in an NSR Shark. That hole is just the right size for a small ferrule to hold the motor tight in the pod

            As for bearings, I prefer Shoe Goo to E6000, I have both, E6000 is cheaper but does a similar job. I use it for securing lead ballast, motors, reinforcing the inside of bodyshells, even on the odd occasion on shoes themselves.

              I found that little hole after checking on the nsr site. I put in a M2 screw and it’s tight as a drum now so thx for the help! It’s just weird that they wouldn’t have secured it in the first place or maybe they just missed it at the factory? I will be buying some shoe goo as well👍🏻😃

            Hopefully you got the mosler sorted out. Also make sure you glue and true those rear tires. If you have a question on that. You can pm me and all walk you thru that process. The way you adjust the ride hight on the evo3 is by rasing and lowering the guide. Both chassis are great just one is easier that the other. I just picked up the momo mosler from a few years back. And its a evo3 chasis with a 25k just like yours. Am messing with the guide to adjust that front end.

              Thanks for the tips! My car is getting better after securing the motor and glueing the bushings. I will try and mess w the guide although I have Carrera track and the rails are a bit higher than the track so it might be a prob getting the guide higher up in the chassis?? I will try some different guides as well. Also, I use quick slicks on my aluminum wheeled cars so no need to glue and true. Thx again and good luck w yours!
