Yes the RTR chassis can work but you have to do two things:

1) Buy the Losi pro engine mounts so the engine sits lower on the chassis.
2) Use a file to slightly widen the flywheel hole in the chassis.

I used a RTR chassis on both an OFNA and Losi bump box. No need to file, you just need to change the motor mounts to lower the fly wheel.

I recommend this setup for easy clutch changing

This should be the mount, it is stock on the Race Roller versions:

RTRs came with a different, cheaper part.

Joe Cool is spot on!!! The quick change engine mounts are the way to go. It makes cleaning quick, clutch maintenance easy, clutch adjustment a breeze, and you can get extra top blocks to mount on different engines. That way several engines can be ready to go at any time. So nice.

I use the king headz extended quick change mount in my truggy and regular king headz quick change mount in the buggy. It makes taking the engine in and out a snap and yes you can have a backup engine ready to go and sway it out in minutes. Best way to go.
