It shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure it is hanging securely because my buddy hung his revo up and it fell down and snapped the whole front end off.

I'd hang it in the tree with a noose by the cooling head

For 1/8 buggy always hang them nose up. You should do this anyway.
It prevents any unburnt nitro/methanol (very corrosive) sitting in the 'u' the bearing outer race creates when sitting horizontally. If you put the crank vertically the bearing race is more like a 'c' so any residue will run out of the bearing and can't sit there doing bad things to them.
Nose up is easy, if you put them nose down oil can work it's way past the seal at the front bearing and you end up with a clutch full of oil....
I always do this after a race meeting as soon as I get home.
