Default Do I have to cut the crank?

Hi I just bought a Novarossi for my Kyosho GT Inferno. The crankshaft is to long for my flywheel and 2 speed set up i have. If i cut the end of the shaft off it will work. But my question is. Is there another way to make this work with out cutting it off? Question # 2.... The flywheel the kyosho came with is way to big around. Is there a different one i can use for this engine. It worked fine with the stock engine, but with this Novarossi the flywheel hangs down below the chassis. I tried a regular flywheel but it will not work with the 2 speed. Thanks for any help you can give me.

You will need a different flywheel, kyosho makes different offset flywheels. your best bet is your local hobby shop. I had this problem about 4 years ago & I took the lot down to the shop & we found the flywheel that worked. I dont remember the part number. Try posting in the offroad section you are more likely to find someone else that has been in the same jam as you, only a bit more recently than me.
