Heads up modelers!The instructions have you install the interior tub prior to installing the engine(I foolishly believed them!)I had to grind down the tranny and portions of the rear engine block to allow the engine to be installed in the proper position.Bummer!(I had to repaint the damaged portions of the engine block and tranny.To make myself feel better,I mocked up the body to the chassis.Looks pretty sweet!

Update guys! I had to move the engine forward so that the body would fit properly.I also had to put on a driveshaft extension. Builders of this kit should verify the correct engine position before cementing it in place!
