Well perfect if you like Mechanical brakes. I have several brushless conversions and I really like mechanical brakes front and rear. The issue is on most conversions to retain the rear brakes you have to use a big spacer so the motor can clear the rear brake, it works but it puts a lot of stress on the front bearing. After killing a couple of bearings I removed the rear mech brakes from most of my conversions. Then I saw it, the Z-Car, I actually never heard of it before but I checked it out and it has a lot of interesting features, but most importantly it had a rear brake mounted on the rear diff, not on the center diff like most buggies. Plus the fact it was on sale for under $200, I picked one up and started to convert it to brushless. I ordered a mount but I couldn't wait so I made a quickie mount and installed the motor. I made a top plate to hold the brake servo and ESC. Then I ran into a problem that all conversion have, the rear chassis brace gets in the way of the motor limiting your gearing options. With the stock brace and 44T spur the lowest I could go was a 16T pinion. So I decide to relocate the brace to the other side, I made a few mods, used a old Kyosho Inferno brace and it fit perfectly. The build quality is pretty good, and the buggy is really light, once I finish the battery tray I will weight it, but it feels much lighter than my Kyosho buggy. Also, I have a Neu 1515 in there right now but I plan on putting a 1512 in soon, the 1512 is much lighter than the 1515. Just need to finish the battery tray, add the ESC and then I should be able to take it for a test run.
Relocated the rear chassis brace.
I have the motor sitting in the car with a 12T pinion, you can see there is plenty of room
