Here is my RC18 with a 380 VXL Motor...
I made a 380 Motor mount that bolts on to the chassis.
There were two easy modifications I had to do to the chassis
First drill the holes to bolt in the 380 VXL RC18 Motor mount.
Then cut the upper chassis to fit the motor..
Here are some pics below.

Will also be updating my rc18 540 motor mount to look like the 380 motor mount

Looks great, now how does run ? Also can you still use a gar cover w/ that setup ?
Havent ran her yet... The crapy steering wont center... I thinkg the servo is stretched out... Ordered aluminum steering set up from the toyz waiting for it to come in... Unless of course it's the servo that is crapy... Then I will have order that to... before I run it. And no the gear cover wont work...
