Default Can i put a Kyosho GX12 nitro Engine in my Hobao Hyper 10 Touring car?

Hi all, Im new to RC nitro cars After being out of the hobby since the early 90's so im basicly a newbie again so i was hoping if someone could give me some advice regarding a Hobao Hyper 10 That im restoring that i bought for cheap on ebay? Ive nearly finished the build but just need a few minor bits plus a new Engine and clutch bell and i was wondering if i could stick a Kyosho GX 12 in it intill i get enough change to go and buy the (H1202) Ho-Bao Hyper 12 Pullstart Engine? Ive Also got a Kyosho Pure ten that i have fully restored just as a cheap start off car so once ive fully restored the Hyper 10 i would hope that i can just use that engine for a few weeks intill im all set to finish the hyper 10 off. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated or any other suggestions would be very welcome!!! Many thanks for reading my thread and i look forward to any replys!!! All the best. Hicks

Sorry I am not familiar with the GX-12.
The Hyper 10 used a side exhaust engine, with a rotary carb.
I am pretty sure you can make a newer style engine work in this model. (rear exhaust/slide carb)

Hope this helps.
