Default Electric clutch

I am doing a conversion from nitro to electric and want to know if i need to use the existing clutch to still have a shifting 2 speed transmission.

No. The shifting comes from the transmission not the clutch system. Hope this helps.

Does it come from the slipper clutch? I thought that was just a torque controller.

The shifting is done internally within the tranny, the slipper is there to protect the drivetrain as it slips if too much force is sent to it. I converted a Slayer a while back and it shifts just like it did when it was powered by nitro. Also notice the green pushrods, I made some custom rods using some tubes from a axial crawler, I made them about 3/8" shorter, which lowered the truck and improved the handling. You do lose some travel so you have to use stiffer springs.

Thanks for the help shark. Man your truck is awesome. i was originally going to get a savage flux but when you posted this a while back i decided to do the same kinda thing. What springs and shock weight do you use?
