Some hacking will be unavoidable.....outrunners do not mix well with the ply crutch type of motor mount used for glow motors in these models.

Should not be too tough to cut away some amount of the ply crutch and add a plywood plate for the outrunner the correct distance back from the firewall. If you square up this ply plate to the ply crutch, it will maintain the original thrust angles.
