Likely not. These cars are based on the new-style Vekoma track with the rails / wheels on the outside, most Arrow and Vekoma coasters have the rails / wheels on the inside. Theoretically it could be done, but coasters with the old style track sit at a very low center line, and having new cars at what is essentially double the height of the center line would make awkward Arrow coasters even more awkward.
It's the same reason why Rougarou and Patriot sit slightly higher than most B&M floorless coasters - they match the old stand-up center line. If they would have been replaced with, say, normal sit-down trains, some of the forces would have been awkward / uncomfortable.
