Yes your engine mounts will work. If you've got the trx pro .15 in there now it will bolt right in. Although you may need to cut down the crank shaft threads to bolt the clutch up.

www.fastlanemachine.com might have some outdrives.To download the owners manual for the Rustler go here. http://www.traxxas.com/products/nitr...x_nrustler.htm it will show you how the steering is put together.

What problems are you having with taking off the clutch? It should come straight off if you removed the e-clip that holds the whole clutch assembly together.

Hmm maybe your clutch is held on with something different.Anyway now that you have the clutch bell off the whole clutch assembly should slide off the engine shaft.

is the clip on the shaft that the clutch bell screws onto? it looks like there might be one there but there is no way i could get it off without breaking something
