thats the same motor i bought for mine. you also need the tc3 nitro clutch nut and you have to cut the shaft of the motor.

an almost undriveable slide carb motor is the only option. its a pretty easy set-up to cut it though. put the collet on then the flywheel, then with a caliper gauge you can measure the depth of the clutch where it threads on, and the mark the shaft from the flywheel out that same distance. remove flywheel and such then cut it, then when you reassemble after you make your cut use one shim under the collet and put it all together. that way the clutch nut will not bottom out before it actually tightens up. and then you'll be good to go. or spend the extra money on the slide carb os motor and buy the rotarty carb for another 35 bucks and then you wont have to cut the shaft.
