Trying to fit an outrunner to old FMA Direct Razor 400

Hello! I need to start by saying I have zero experience with flying wings!

I was walking around my attic last night, and found an old FMA Razor new in the box. No electronics, just the airframe.

The airframe has mount for Speed 400 motor.. I'm guessing we're talking about 2000-2002 or so here

My question - what would be the easiest way to mount a brushless outrunner motor to this wing? I have two outrunner motors I already own and I think would be ideal to use, so I'd like to not have to buy another motor. I have lipos, ESC, servos... I really just need to build the thing, and mount the motor.. I'm also planning on adding a CF tube spar to join the wings for more rigidity. I am *hoping* to build a VERY fast wing... Is 100mph possible?! hahaa
I think I can figure out the TX programming and airplane setup, really I just want to know from you guys what you think would be the best way to mount a motor on that wing.. I was planning on getting out some scrap wood and just going to town, but I think others must have done this before and can save me some headaches!!!

Thanks for any help! Looking forward to getting this thing in the air!!
