No it wont fit properly and even if you could MAKE it fit the drivetrain would just blow up from the power of the big block as it was built with the intentions only to accept the small block. As for the 3.3 fitting its possible but you have to find out if there is even a motor mount or is the original motor machined to be the mount. Otherwise if there is a motor mount in the Redcat then you would have to mock the engine in to see if the clutchbell even fits properly with your spur setup on the car.

It would be just easier to spend an extra $100 and buy a good car to start with that already has a big block in it.
