Motor extension/adapter, viable?

Post by ShadowNightmares » Feb 16 2021 3:09pm

Hello again, ES users
I know someone that got one of those mini chinese cars but is looking to upgrade it (1000W if i'm not mistaken)
So i had the idea to make a sleeve adapter/extension for Motenergy brushed motors, the ME1003 just as an example
And between the motor and the gearbox, where the adaptor will be, around it will have a metal "box", to be soldered in the metal structure and add rigidity as it holds both parts of the system
Please check the images and lets see if my idea would be feasible or not
First picture is my idea
Second pic is showing how the stock motor couples tightly with the gearbox
Third pic is from Aliexpress and shows some dimensions, from where i got part of the shaft size and dimensions (only aproximated sizes)
