Default HPI nitro MT and SG shaft motor??

I have a trinity picco outlaw motor sitting around and im trying to find something to stick it in. I do race onroad by only use big blocks. I was thinking of sticking it in an HPI nitro MT for fun.

Does anybody know if its possible to use a SG or pilot shaft with the MT clutchbell? I dont have an MT and id like to find out if it would work before i buy one.

thanks to anybody that can help

check around online cause i think i have heard of people putting big blocks in NMT's but dont know how.

(have a NMT but it is my first RC vehicle so I am no pro on engines or parts)

maybe, but i have this motor just laying around. All my rc cars are just for racing, i was actually looking to get it as a toy.

Its a pretty sweet .12 Its has a big composite slide carb with a turbo head and fluted crank and its rear exhaust. It could hold its own against most other larger midrange motors.

I thought it would be cool to get an MT racer and a 2spd tranny and setup it up as a highspeed stadium truck.

I have a xxxNT drake that i race offroad.

the 2 spd stadium truck with the .12 would be awsome especially since the NMT converts EASILY into an onroad vehicle.

(i recently go onroad tires, new rims, stiff springs, and a high performance air filter for mine but haven'y had a chance to test...so it should be interesting)

also HPI left holes for extreme onroad setups so try it...cause you could just end up with a one of a kind...

I believe that you can use an SG shaft in a NMT. You may have to use motor mounts, and a different flywheel. You may also need a different clutch. Not sure on the clutchbell.
