Default New t Maxx

I just got a free t maxx roller and it seems like i cant fit any engines into it. I have 2 axial .28 that really sreeam but the holes on the block dont line up with the engine mount. I also have an SH .18 but it is a rotary carb not a slide carb. Is there anyway to meke these fit? What good motors(other than traxxas) will fit? Thanks for reading

There are quite a few os motors that drop in, or you can look at the picco .26 that is also a drop in with a new motor mount.

A rotary carb won't fit the maxx unless you get a new throttle setup. The big block won't fit without a BB chassis or monoblock extension.

Good drop in engines are the TRX 2.5, 2.5R, 3.3, OS 18TM, 21TM, OS .26, anything under .21 (besides some OS motors) that have a slide carb should work if they have a maxx mount pattern. Anything over that and you need a new chassis
