Default Schumacher R12 with a Mega .15 engine?

Hi guys just a quick question my brother has a Schumacher R12 (just got one new) he has an old Nova Mega SX15 that he got that works fine, willl this engine be fine for it? or is it to much power/torque for the chassis as the manufactuer recomends a .12 engine?

Kinde regards

It should be just fine. Just keep an eye on the belt tension as they break-in / wear.

Isn't the SX15 a "big block" engine? If so, I wonder if it will physically fit in the car without some major hassle with the motor mounts etc

it should fit if you use the R12 with the .21 motor
