I have removed all the nitro stuff and started the build up, just a few shots of the chassis, motor, motor mount, and a shot of a Integy 540 can motor next to the Neu 1515 2.5 D.

~gets weak in the knees~

Nitro...electric...either way the SC8 is the sickest rig on the market.

Good luck with the build!

must.... have.... video....

I would love to pick one of these up to convert if I could race them. There was some talk of running these with the MT class, but I think that would be really unfair for the MT guys from the videos I have seen, drives extremely well for the tires its using. Think truggy class would be a more fair mix in one for now till enough of these are in the wild.

anway, do you plan to get some race footage?

Local nitro guys will not let me race with them because of the conversion.

You should; prolly sell more of them. If people become aware of the advantages of brushless 8th scale, it'll very quickly become popular. The durability of a tank, and the convenience of brushless/lipo... yeah, won't be long.
