Default 1/8th brushless off road

hey all: I'd like to know what else would need to be changed on an 8th buggy or truggy other than engine and fuel tank to convert to brushless and still keep the balance right? Also with caster and now losi offering realy good 8th brushless buggy kits will this class start to take off? Thanks

www.rcproductdesigns.com is another great source check out the FAQ section.


www.casterracingusa.com This car was dialed all weekend long. (an no I don't race it but it looked really good)

We had a big trophy race this weekend and we had 8-10 electric 1/8 scales racing out of 60 entries and I only see this getting bigger.
