If you post up pictures, I'm sure someone can let you know.
If it's limited to diameter of the motor (540 can), then a 3674 motor of your choice should be fine. If it's limited to length of the motor, you'll still have a range of options.
But, if it's limited by both, your motor options will be very limited.

That's pretty damn short. Not even Castle's 2650KV would fit in there.
Does it matter have big the diameter is? Leopard make a 4 pole 4060 motor that would fit and it's 1900KV.

Default Got mine yesterday

Picked one up locally yesterday. This thing is huge and looks good, but the stock ESC was DOA. The place I bought it from is going to either fix or replace it, but I wasn't planning on sticking with the stock stuff anyway, especially that cheezy TX it came with. I already had a Tekin 1900KV T8 so today I bought a Mamba Monster ESC to go with it (would have bought a RX8 but LHS didn't have any). I was also looking at a 2200KV Tekin motor, but it was too long to fit. Haven't had a real run with this thing yet, but I hope it holds up to the power from the new stuff! I'm worried that the diffs won't be able to hold up but I'll find out soon enough! For the price I really can't complain.

Thanks for letting me know about the diff's. That servo is the next thing to be removed and replaced.

The Tekin 1900kv motor fits with a little over 1/8 of an inch to spare but you can only use the font motor mount that comes with the truck (the one that bolts up next to the spur).

Whenever I wear these stock tires down (shouldn't take long, lol) I'll pick up some new wheels/tires for it and will take your advice about the offset. Thanks!

im thinking of buying one, but the only question is are the diffs durable and what amp rating is the esc cuz it looks like a rebadged hobbywing, and are there hop ups for it. i know wondertrail.com has a lot of zd racing parts, but i dont know if they have 1/8 hop ups. thanks.

I've got one that I purchased a few weeks ago. Was able to use an hpi vorza flux mount With the vorza flux motor. Using a castle mamba monster esc and 2 2s packs.
Thing flies, 48mph with a 22t pinion.
