SHOOTING STAR 4 75mm "Host Mounts-tm" were INTRODUCED to HPR in the 80's so this is a time tested motor mounting system. My how times have changed with reloadables and with hybrids to add to the mix of time tested and convenient expendables. SHOOTING STAR 4 has kept up to date by supporting ANY length motor in the "Host Mount"-tm and with the included "Interchange Mount-tm" for 66mm and 54mm. The 66mm "Interchange Mount-tm" directly fits 2.5" RATTWORKS Hybrid motors!

The 66mm "Interchange Mount-tm" can accept a variety of other optional "Interchange Mounts-tm" (not included) such as 38mm, 29mm, 3x29mm, 4x24mm. The 75mm "Interchange Mount-tm" can accept a variety of other optional "Interchange Mounts-tm" (not included) such as 4x29mm.
