Btw, I forgot you asked about motor diameter. I'll try to get that later. Chris N has a few other posts about those tenshock motors, just search this forum for that motor name as I have asked him a few questions. I would love to upgrade to those motors but maybe next year.
Here you go TJ... (PAGE 204)
