Default what is best nitro car for electric conversion?

I'm going to convert nitro powered offroad car into brushless powered
but first of all I got to choose one nitro car for conversion..
there too many of offroad nitros..
but I'm lookin for something that is..

1. 1/8 scale(for placing BIG ESC and BIG battery packs)
2. not too heavy(for faster speed and accelation)

any recommandations or suggestions?

Truggies are much easier to convert than buggies.. the extra chassis length really helps fit everything nice and neat.

Any truggy will do... just pick the one you like. If you want a single-pack layout instead of some type of saddle pack design, then wait for the Losi 8ightT. The Losis make a very nice motor-on-one-side, battery-on-the-other conversion.

I have some pics etc in on the rcmonster adn radiocontrolzone forums... as well as a little info on here somewhere I think?
