not so sure about the .15 but i have seen someone who drilled holes in his chassis and got his 3.3 to work.

Yes, Redcat does have a engine replacement program.

basically sending in the old motor will get you a replacement at 1/2 the retail cost of a new one.

details on this page:

as for the TRX .15, if there is room to move the motor mounts just by drilling new holes, that is what i would do. Easier IMO then buying a new clutch bell that will reach the spur gear.
