I would also consider the Tekno conversion it uses a clutch so it does not put as much stress on the front bearing of the motor when breaking since it uses mechanical breaking. I know some people who have not been around the setup think it sounds stupid, but I have the conversion on my Losi 8ight T and love it. It seems to make it a little more controllable than some of the other conversions I have seen. I have not driven any of the other conversions and do not mean to step on anyone's toes though.

Impakt RC has most of the above mentioned items on their website.

Looks great. You replaced all of the parts that I found to need replaceing from failures at the track. Now it seems to be up to snuff after the upgrades. Its gone 2 race days without a failure now. Nice job on getting ahead of th curve on your build.

Thank you. I can't wait to run it. I have not sold my nitro stuff yet, but I think I'm in love. It's kinda like falling in love with the Centerfold chick in Playboy. Even though I have not taken it for a test drive, I still have a funny feeling in my pants just from looking at it.

the rc8t brushless is a blast for sure, no doubt. Looks like AE did a good job of moving the tray as close as possible to the center relative to the spur from your pics.

What did you use to mount your ESC, velcro?

The AE conversion comes with double sided tape to mount the ESC, so I just used that. Seems to be solid.

Do yourself a favor and put a zip tie over the mamba monster. The tape will probably hold but I have had the case on the esc pop open before. A zip tie for some extra security can hurt.
