yep, ditto on doubling up the motor mounts. You'll need to pick up some longer studs. I got a length of all thread rod from fatenall and made my own.

Also ditto on the Panther frame. Wonderful, comfortable ride... well made and good looking. I ran my 50 with a HS and Qmatic tranny, recently upgraded to the 99cc Predator engine with the same tranny and y next year will use the same engine with a variale speed transmission inspired by Wayne Z.

You're in for some kind of fun!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
