Default ENGINE MOUNTING HELP!!!! NEED DESPERATE HELP!!!!

Hey all i have a big problem with my Nitro Stampede, I just bought a new XTM .15 with pullstart engine for it and the guy at hobby people said it would fit perfectly, anyways when i mount the engine, the clutch bell is way too long for it, so i have to move the engine off the mount one hole, which means my engine is susseptable to falling off... someone give me some advice please, spent alot of time and effort in this car.

what you could do is either buy a new engine mount or maybe drill holes in that one for where you need it at.

You have to cut the crank shaft to make that engine fit. If you are not up to that task then bring it back to the hobby shop and let them do it or return it.
