A LOT OF MODDING! I thought about doing this to my Jato(Along with 1000 others). You would really have to move things around, big time! The biggest problem with switching from small block to big block is that you change the center of gravity...The weight is no longer distributed properly due to the size difference. If you are ever on the Traxxas web site, look in the jato section and you will find a thread of a guy that did it and quickly changed it back because it just threw everything off.

I would save your Mach and put it in a MT or buggy/Truggy where it is supposed to fit.

Hope this helps
