Default Mach .26 engine into MBX5 prospec

I'm planning to buy MBX5 prospec and convert it to bugimon ( truggy ). Right know I have a brand new Mach .26 pull start engine from my LST.

My question: Would Mach .26 pull start engine fit into MBX5 ?

Thanks a lot for the info, guys.

Here is the pic for OS VB series..... I know this one is okay for MBX5




Here is the pic for Mach .26



I think both pics show SG crankshaft style.

I don't know about this engine, but i have a WASP .28 pullstart version. I have to grind a little on the back of the engine mount to fit it in.

The MBX-5 is designed for non-pull start engines only....I doubt you will be able to get it to work....Good luck....Burn Nitro.....

He can shim up the engine mounts with washers and use a larger header that will swing around the pull starter.

The Mach .26 is a monster in the Mayhem, I am sure it will be the same in an MBX5.
