Default does anyone make an electric conversion kit for 1/8th buggies, truggies?

like the title says, does anyone know if there are any companies that are making a generic electic/brushless conversion that will fit in any 1/8th buggy or truggy? it would be a nice alternative to those that arn't all that comfortable with nitro but still want to get into the 1/8th scene....if it exists.

i know there is at least one company (fine design) that is offering a rtr version of an 1/8th buggy (a 1/8th storm i think) and a rtr truggy conversion (i think it's a hot bodies truck conversion)......but, these are pretty pricey $$ and you are limited to the buggy/truggy that they offer....and that may or may not be the buggy/truggy that i want to run. are there any other companys making a rtr electric/brushless 1/8th.....and is there anyone making a generic conversion that anyone could put in a buggy/truggy of their own choice?

If anyone says fine design, I will find you and punch you in the face.

Electric conversions are BUILT not BOUGHT but there are some fly by night companies that sell them....

Read this one too:

1/8th Scale Brushless Buggy

Forget Fine Design, that's way overpriced. Once they have a little competition, the prices will come down. You can build your own alot cheaper, and get some pretty good results...
