Anything is always possible. It all depends on the new engine, your skill level and whatever tools you have or have access to. If you already have the 50cc engine you could compare it's mounting and crankshaft to yours to see how compatible they are.

might be easier to get a Big bore kit for the motor already in your truck. There are lots of upgrades available for trucks like that.
But as mentioned, depending on your skills, tools and how close the 50cc is to the 30cc (in terms of mounting and output shaft) you may be able to put it in your truck.
However, while 1/5 gas isn't my specialty, I do know that their motors are tuned for the job at hand...moving a 30 pound RC at good speeds. You may install the 50cc motor and find it not much depends on how many RPMs the 50cc motor is designed to run at. The transmission in the RC may have very different gearing than that of the mini, even if the 50cc has more power, it may not spin fast enough for the gearing of the RC. Or it may be crazy fast....I cant say without more info on the stock and 50cc motors.
