it should fit, i know they need a standard crank, since you said cut crank, it may be too short.

since it says standard crank it should fit, i personally dont know since i dont have any dynamite engines in my cars only one of my boats. I think you should go with the sh .18 on the erp from redcat, its more powerful and a better engine than that at a better price, the sh .18 will cost you less than $50

if you dont want to wait and want it from a store, see if they have an os cvrx .18, its around $110 but its a great engine, direct fit, reliable, easy to tune and start. i know its more than that dynamite engine but believe me, you wont be happy with that .12 engine.

i would think a week turn around, i guess it depends on how fast you get the old engine to them.

i would have to think less speed and torque, dynamite is not known for thier high output engines and the vx16 is a decently fast engine, i have one in my lightning and was pretty impressed, i have the .32 dynamite in my shockwave boat, its pretty decent BUT its a .32

The dynamite .12S engine is a decent sport engine. They do however, like to run warm when they are at their peak power. Its power output, is comparable with the OS .12 CV series.
