i wish i could help you but i dont know for sure.  what i would do is read the specs of the size and distance of the holes and measure what the t-maxx has.  i dont think it will fit just stock in the TRX mount

The .25 engine will not fit on a stock TMaxx chassis. There is simply not enough room between the spur gear and bulkhead tabs/shock tower for it to fit.
You need an extended chassis (extended in the rear) to run a BB engine.

You would spend more trying to get that motor to fit than a new 3.3 would cost.

The 4908 chassis is extended in front. What kind of chassis did you win on ebay?

the ofna mount you posted earlier is for the picco max engines which have a shortened engine case and a shorter crank to drop into the t-maxx.
if you want to go with a normal big block like the S25 you will have to get an extended chassis big block conversion like the one in this link, and this one will fit whatever engine you decide to go with in the future.

it also comes with extended braces for under the chassis
engine mounts
drive lines
and three different colors
not to mention it is a work of art
