ya they will fit

but you may need to upgrade your bushings to bearings

your shaft drive to a aluminium one and the original will slap around even with a sliver can giving you brakes when you dont quite need them

if your looking for more speed you can just change the gear ratio first

than look at the speedi

then motor

and by then you will be up for a new car

Thanks for reply. And bearings are already in, as well as aluminum shaft.
What gear ratio would be fine for best acceleration/speed? 20/58 or some other?

cant quite remember but i think you can get a 55/25 in there which will give you the best.



but if your going for a 17.5 you need to watch, what your final ratio will be

bepending on what speedi a motor you cant go any lower than 3.5

but have a look at your interal ratio and / 55/25 * by interal ratio giving you final


but if i wear you i would go the gear option and get what you can out of the car

and put the 17,5 in something that can handle the power

I am new in all this, so I have a tons of questions, sorry.

What means " going for a 17.5"? You mean motor turns or something else?
Also "you cant go any lower than 3.5" means ...?

What is "interal ratio"?
