Exclamation help with 1/16 nitro conversion

I need help choosing motors and materials. im on a very tight budget so no goin lipo or brushless.ok i have a novak GT7 and im wondering can i put 2 370 size (or what ever 1/18 scale car use) into it im thinking about the vendetta ST motors for the pushin but dont know if i have enough power and how should i bolt on the motors? or i could get a 19t stock light speed motor for 1/10 scale cars. im gonna be using regular sub C cells for more power (5 cell, and i dont wanna spend money). im gonna be using a hitec high speed feather for steering. im not expecting you guys to answer all these questions but im wanting opinios and ideas.
here are some specs about the car that you guys might need:
car: sportwerks chaos
-Four-wheel independent suspension system
-Oil-filled, coil-over shocks
-4WD drivetrain with 3 gear differentials

i might post pics if i have any time.(dealing with exams)

thanks guys

It looks to be the same size as a kyosho half eight, they use a 380(speed 400) size motor in that one. I think sub c size cells are to heavy and you'd be better off with a AE size cell like this one or similar.....BB
