You done something wrong. Novas are made to go in a Losi lol. Maybe take engine mount off car and put on engine then install to chassi. Seeing Team driver, you should know that atleast not in a ride way but thats all i see that will make it not fit. If it dont fit then its a fake engine pretty much lol. What is exactly not fitting, crank to long/short, or block to fat?

yea, its just the way losi designed the center diff you can use a file on the plastic diff mount so you can mount the carb straighter. it works but if the engine moves a little the carb barrel can get stuck so your better off just turning the carb a little bit still.

i dont like the way losi did that to be honest with you.

lol, well i think part of it was because losi was trying to get much forward weight as possible which yea is a good thing they do have a one piece alum diff mount i have it god if i could ever get the brakes to work right on it i would use it lol.

the other new 1/8 dont have that problem im talking about .

Sorry on my friends account helping him out.. lol Forgot to sighn out. Like i said though carbs sit silly in losi, also like i mentioned EPA is always needed on all 1/8 im sure ur aware of but losi tends to only like one servo and thats hitec...lol jk but epa is a must!
