Default adjusting drivetrain

o.k. here it goes, i bought a blazer body for my scx10 (pro-line 3244-00). if my math is right that body is 273 mm. and my trucks wheel base is 289.5 mm so i bought 7x50 upper links and 6x74.5 lower links. factory upper links are 7x60 with a 6mm spacer between y link and the rear axel and the lower are 6x91 so i hope my math is correct with all of that if it is wrong some say something, any way now comes the question i want to put the new short links on the front so my " short" drive shaft will be in the front (like a real blazer would be) are there any down falls to moving the tranny mount foward in the frame. and hopefully by doing this i will get more foward weight, and keep the axel to frame relation the same, if i dont move the tranny foward then my frame will stick out from the front of the body. thank you for any input.

if the wheelbase is the same as the cgr version it should be 12.5 pro-line used to have that posted with each body but since they have changed sites i dont see that anymore. my ramcharger cgr is also 12.5 and all i did was add 4 of axials 25 mm spacers to the rear upper and rear lower links and it fits perfect. i didnt want to stretch the front as i plan on adding the hand bros steering kit and didnt want to mess up that geometry

as far as i can tell the cgr body has a longer wheel base than the scx and the regular blazer is shorter, i diddnt want to mess up the front axle to frame geom. either just the link length and shaft length, any way thanks i was trying it but there are just to many holes to close to each other so i couldnt do it the way i wanted. now i am buying a replacement frame .... oh well
