Talking 8ight t 2.0 brushless set-up??

Ok guys I am looking to find the sweetest set-up for a losi 8ight T 2.0? Does anyone make it yet and or is their another kit that will work. I have a buddy who bought the 8ight 2.0 and he does not want to run nitro on it at all. Money is no object for the right set-up. I have no clue what to tell him but said that maybe the Neu 1515 1.5y and the Mamba monster maxx seemed to be what alot of people went with. Batteries I dont know.. He wants fast and uncontrollable at WILL basically if he wants it! But doesnt want to be buying parts every time he turns it on! Any suggestions guys? His truck hasn't arrived yet but he wants to purchase all the equipment NOW so it's here when the truck gets here.

zippy batts hobbycity(hongKong), mmm ebay,losi tray and straps losi parts house, neu motor -shop around rc monster,neu motor themselves,tekno rc.
The neu batts are a good buy as well. You need a charger and power supply ? get the Hyperion and any 15 amp plus supply preferably 20-25 amps

You could get the losi conversion that includes the motor mount tray strps and a few other goodies pinions spur etc. if you dont get the losi conersion you will need some pinions as well .....mod1 style from rc monster, tekno rc or amain. I would get 13,14 and 15 tooth pinions and red loctite.

yes stupid fast. This will not be a race car but a basher setup like this. Too fast for racing but witha light finger maybe.

this is my set up in a 8t 1.0

mamba monster max esc
neu castle 2200kv motor
http://superfastrc.com/mamba-monster...0kv-m2200.html

this is a good conversion kit
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/27736

and battery is up to him if money isnt an option then he can buy the losi 4s battery and that will be good.

now he still needs a charger and balancer i would go with a hyperion http://www.allerc.com/product_info.p...ac171d1d804442

this should get him up and running.
