First home made motor mount and Terry parts

So I finally made my first motor mount! I got all my parts for my Terry in and I had to make a mount for the motor so I grabbed the dremel and started cutting. After half an hour on the first try I got it Im hoping it will hold up. Here are some pics of the mount and the new motor vs. the old brushed 400.

Update: So I think the 6x3 I have is too big for this motor. I dont have a watt meter and this motor cuts out after about 6 seconds at WOT. It seems bogged down and the motor gets really really hot, real quick like so time to go for a smaller prop.

A 6X3 prop is a big load for such a High Kv 20X30 motor. I have a similar Kv Feigaho and it swing only a 4X2 on 2 cells drawing almost 20 amps

I got everything put together for a test and and the ESC over loaded and shut down I ordered a 4.1x2, 4.1x4.1, 4.75x3 and a 4.75x4.75 today. This is my first experience with a direct drive inrunner so im hoping one of these will work.
