Ummmm....if you are referring to the one in the pic, that's a no-go. You must use either a standard fully threaded crank that has been cut down OR a short shaft engine. The pilot shaft model in the pic won't work.

Nope. You might be able to buy a threaded or short crank somewhere, but I don't know for sure if they make one for that engine....

If you cut that crank, all you would be doing is ruining the engine....sorry man!....

You could do it using a traxxas clutch and clutchbell setup. But you will not be able to get a wide range of bells like from ae. I'd look for a crank to swap in there.

Aaah Traxxas clutch would work? T-maxx has quite a few clutch bells I think or I could run a bigger spur??...
