Default 1/14 LaFerrari toy to hobby grade conversion (Rastar 50100)

picked up a 1/14 Rastar 50100 LaFerrari at my value village for four Canadian Pesos (three Freedom Bucks™), I want to convert it to hobby grade electronics, and as a plus i already have a 3d printer. i forgot to take pictures before i tore it apart, sorry. anyway, i figured i'd ask for some help with electronics as I have no experience with anything smaller than a Stampede. It has a full interior so space is tight, but if i have to cut the floor out of the passenger seat i guess i have to lol. I plan to use a ProModeler DS145CLHV for my servo (small and high torque from a great company), so that leaves motor and esc (and receiver, but I'll probably just get a takeoff TTX200 and rx). i haven't drawn up the existing chassis yet (in Inventor) but i'm pretty sure a 540 size motor will not fit unless i cut off half the interior (the motor that shows through the back window) and part of the webbing on the chassis
