I want to put a standard Mabuchi S can in a Ninco car in place of the boxer type Ninco motor, they are out of stock in Pendles and although there are downloadable programs for 3D printers, I don’t have a 3D printer. I am sure I have at least one of these kicking around but my “work” bench looks a lot like Trisha’s Mess! No offence Trisha! So, does anyone have the adapter that I need please?

In the US Slot Car Corner sells 3D printed FC 130 to FK 180 motor adapters. In the past if I had a chassis that was made for a 180 motor I simply glued the shorter motor in place. That would affect the car's side to side weight distribution, however.

There's an adapter print for pretty much any kind of motor to any motor mount at this point.
I'm sure someone in the UK with a printer would be happy to help.
It might be worth looking around in the 3DP subforum to find someone to ask. :)

Well, I know Kevan and myself have had our differences and we don’t always see eye-to-eye on some things, but when I needed something, he was the first to step up and offer me help. So, I would like to say a very public “Thank you” to Kevan for printing the adapters for me. They arrived safe and sound this morning, thanks again Kevan.
