even with the option Losi mount and the rails flipped its a very close fit...

the carb is very close to the center diff, not sure how this will affect anything

You can also use a Losi clutchbell with that clutch setup... the pinion on the Losi bell protrudes further forward to engage the spur gear properly.

Yes, clearance is tight with the rails flipped on the mount...
