Default Is it possible to convert a nitro stadium truck to mid elect

I have 2 Mugen MST-1 .I would like to have 1 in brushless. It can cover real rough stuff and hit big jumps better than any ST I have seen. Any body do a mid motor conversion on a ST. I have access to mill but not much skills.

I was thinking if I can't use the upper plate I could some arrow shafts & threaded inserts. If they can break ribs of a deer @ 300fps and not break should hold up to a 30mph jump.

Like said above...anything is possible. You can convert it into a flying nun with enough time, brains, and money. My buddy turned a 6yr old stampede into a competitive rig somehow last week with a completely new chasis and front end setup. Now is super low with an awesome CG for a rwd.

Anything is possible. here is a pic of my HPI mt2 converted to brushless. Motor mount/spur gear bracket milled out of 6mm alloy with bearings set in. Simple

don't have a pic of it ready to run but trust me it goes
