in a word "NO" but it depends if it's a 540 or 550 or 570 or a 240.... then there is a size difference.

Number of turns has nothing to do with physical size. If it mounted, it is a 5xx series, and probably a 550+, whereas you need a +/-540 without hitting.

Seeing as there is NO reason on earth to stick a 12t motor in a crawler, this shouldn't be an issue. Just pick up a lathe and be done with it.

The "12 turn" that comes with the xl5 rustler is a 550 sized motor. Physically, they are a bit longer than a 540 and that is where your problem is.
