Dumas Akula Motor Mounting


I'm looking for tips on how to mount the motor in a Dumas Akula. I have a 540 motor from a RC car I'm going to use. I am trying to manufacture some kind of bracket to mount the motor, but I was hoping some one here might have some better ideas than what I have been able to come up with.

Thanks

Tim,
I found the 540 motor too powerful for the Dumas Akula - the sub threw up a rooster tail and caused too much torque roll. I finally changed and installed a smaller motor. To install, I built a wooden cradle out of 1/4 square bass wood stock and strapped the motor into it using a plastic tie. I hope the pictures help explain..
