Default UFO motor in 2wd buggy/sc

I recently ordered a Tianhao 17.5 UFO brushless motor. After further reading I am worried that it might not fit in any of my cars. I have a 2wd b4(rear motor) and a kyosho 2wd ultima sc...does anyone know if it will fit in either of these?

It will NOT fit. The tabs are on the wrong end of the motor! This motor only fits in mid motor or touring car applications by the looks of it.

Default UFO

typhoon do think it would be possible to install the motor and put the three cables under in between the motor and the plastic cover? You can kind of see the gap in the pic i put in

It'll work, I use one in my SC10. It's tight but it works.
