Default Help rebuild mugen mbx6 eco

I have to fix my mugen mbx 6 exo because of a lipo fire and crash. Picture of car:http://i.imgur.com/zqJsz8j.jpg
Picture of battery:http://i.imgur.com/n5590xy.jpg
I was racing my brother in parking lot and my car started to smoke so I let off and it was stuck at full throttle and crashed Into a curb at 40+ mph. I stripped down the car down the chassis and checked everything and this is one tough car. Broken parts ,both pieces of motor mount,front gear box ,and melted battery tray. I am 15 so I'm on kind of a budget. I found the integy brush less conversion kit for mbx 6. I was wondering if it fits on the eco chassis? For battery's I was looking at the smc 3600mah 60c 4s will this last a main with a tekin 1900kv geared at 46/16?
Are they any other batteries that are decent and around $50. No hobby kings please because that's what failed in my car.

Smc all the way... If you can, I would put some x7 parts on wile you can.. Like upper arms and whatever else you can that needs replacing

SMC battery best bang for your buck, and should be close to finish a 8 min main if needed and that conversion kit should fit just fine. When a lipo goes bad we need to ask ourselves why it burned up? NO LIPO CUT OFF SETTING, INCORRECT CHARGING, NOT BALANCING? do you know why? not very often its just a bad battery im just trying to help.

I think the battery may have been slowing down due to it being older and my motor pulled more amps then the battery could handle.

Does anyone know if the integy conversion kit will fit the eco chassis?

It looks almost brand new with a slightly charred front upper arm. The motor mount bent and snapped on impact of the crash.
