Be advised though it's not cheap - requires a new chassis plate as well as front and rear (motor mount) centre diff mount. Probably one of the reasons used X3 nitro's fetch so little despite being excellent rc's. I'm not sure why Hong Nor elected to use offset diff support in the nitro - they didn't in the X3GT - so can only presume it was to force rally X drivers wanting to make the jump / run two set ups to buy the full conversion kit.

I have seen bodges where ppl have fitted right angled motor mounts, bolted to the chassis, with slotted motor mountings. In my opinion it'll lead to issues like some of the older tekno conversions etc, where the motor and centre diff flex differently, affecting mesh and subsequent spur wear - not ideal with a plastic spur.
