Default REVO BIG BLOCK CONVERSION

i'm building a revo kit and have a axial 28 with less than a qt of use on it, motor is just starting to come into some decent power. well i got the big block motor mount BUT the motor is to long, so now all you revo lovers out there need to tell me how am i going to make this work! i know these conversions are possible, thinking about drilling new holes in chassis to move tranny forward a little but then i'm gonna run into driveshaft length problems. talking about 3/4". really like to use this motor, if you ever had one of these motors you'd no why.......HELP.......

Default RE: REVO BIG BLOCK CONVERSION

lately ive been doing some research for a fellow racer who wants to convert his revo to big block. seems there are 3 conversion mounts on the market. with the traxxas and some other brand(i forgot) mount you will need a non-pull/rotostart engine, because the backplate will hit your arms. the new era models does allow you to use ANY .21-.28 with pullstarts. it adjusts foreward and backward. it also tips your head in toward the center of the car just like a hyper 9.
