Default XXX-NT Engine Swap

I'm attempting to swap out my Mach 15FE to a Mach .18 on my XXX-NT RTR. Everything seems to mount right up except my out drive is a little too long. I took the bell housing off the .15 and put it on the .18 to make sure I have the right gear mesh with the spur gear. I guess my question is, is there a way to shim the engine back some without doing something stupid like drilling into the chassis?

Hey i am trying to swap mine our to. I just rebuilt my .15... I did not see anyway to to place the engine further back. But as far as i know the .15 should be the same size as the .18... check everything it tight.
