480 motor into stock gen 9 grip, working test

Thought I’d share this tin arse moment…I’m not sure if anyone’s done similar?

So can’t find a suitable 460 motor for a gen 9 build I’m planning.
Thought I’d see how I could fit a 480 motor into the stock grip of the gen 9. Both motors are almost identical in length, so I just found a v2 base plate that matched up with the stock gen 9 mounting holes.
Dropped it in and thought I’d hear all kinds of screeching…but it worked just fine lol

I’m going to trim the v2 base plate to match the gen 9 as there slightly different and see how bevel to pinion shimming goes.
Let me know if you’ve done the same and what you did, cheers
