Do you have the rtr? If so you have to get the motor mounts from the kit.

Most RTR kits come with mounts that are slightly taller than the kit versions. This is because RTR's have either a pullstart or some form of rotostart. This requires more clearance on the bottom of the engine due to the size of the backplate. If you have kit mounts and wanted to put a pullstart on you could by shimming the block up off the mounts a bit. With a bumpstart engine the RTR mounts can put the flywheel to high to make contact with the wheel on your starter box.
