Default Looking to convert Losi 810 to electric

Hey all, I'm looking to purchase a Losi 810 RTR and convert it to electric. I've seen two different conversion kits out there, possibly a third and was wondering what you guys recommend.

The first one I saw was from elite rc:

http://www.elitercd.com/index.php?op...id=75&Itemid=2

Here's one from rc monster:

Not sure if these kits will work on the 810:

http://www.teknorc.com/product_info....9e88e398ca3624

Are there any cheaper kits out there? I really don't care to purchase a new chassis. If I can keep the stock chassis and use a cheaper conversion kit, can you guys point me in the right direction?

I'm currently reading up on some conversions done by other members here on the forums. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

just a thought.. it may be cheaper to buy an SCTE and convert that to a 1/8 buggy

I thought of that too. $300 for a roller, another $150-200 in parts. Here's what another member listed for parts to do the conversion:

810/ten-t chassis
810/ten-t rear center shaft
810/ten-t chassis guards
810 body mount kit (nub for the front and rear)
810 body

Another member mentioned I'd have to get these parts as well:

810 wheel axles and the 17mm hubs as well

Another option would be to get this:

AND

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...gy-Race-Roller

Together, I'd be looking at spending around $530. Not too bad. I can probably use my CC SCT combo on this buggy, with a 3S.

Thoughts anyone?

All you need is the Ten T chassis, 810 axles, SCTe motor mount and wing. Walla 810.

One thing I found hard about building the 810 from the ground up is finding diffs. I have paid $110.00 for two diffs (front and center, without Chris pins). Still need the rear but it's getting out of hand on eBay.

The ERC chassis is for the truck, will make the buggy to long.

I assume you're talking about going from an SCTE to an 810, correct?
