It will fit but is it worth the $50? Save your money and buy something better in the future after the sh motor wears out.

its not a used engine its a brand new .27 engine and is just on sale and someone told me id have to get a new engine mount and a new drivetrain because its ALOTTTT of torque so im kinda going with that i might just buy the redcat .21 from the 3.5 and shove that in there if i can i might need a mount for that but it will fit its the same car
