Default WANTED: short-can 17.5T motor

I have a Futaba FX10 that I converted to brushless, and 17.5T is a perfect match for the limited gearing of the vehicle, it's a blast to drive

but I only have 1 spare 17.5T motor, and it's a pretty darn nice one (it's still pretty much new), and I don't really want to use it for bashing. The weight balance is also ALL off, because the buggy is designed for brushed motors, which have the winding concentrated closer to the motor mount. (bad enough for me to care, even if it's a ~25 year old buggy with friction shocks used strictly for fun)

I am looking for a short-can 17.5T motor to help with weight balance, and so I don't need to use my backup race motor in the fun-mobile.
I know they exist, I've seen a few old ones for sale
I don't want anything fancy and new, old and abused is what I'm looking for
don't want to pay more than ~$25

will also just buy a regular old beat up 17.5T motor if you give me a deal I can't refuse.

here's some eye candy for your time
now it has modern 2wd buggy tires, and I had to cut the rear bumper of the body off so it could wheelie instead of bash the bumper on the ground.
and if you were wondering, it's holding up WAY WAY WAY better than I expected!
