You have to convert watts to horsepower. Figure out the total watts of your setup and then convert it to horsepower. If you google watts to horsepower conversion, some calculators should come up.

If I recall correctly, that setup is around 3 horsepower. I remember Rc Product Designs one of the early electric conversion companies used to have a table showing the HP of various Neu Motors.

Thing is you can't really compare the rated horsepower of a nitro engine to that of a electric. The electric has more torque and can spin at practically full RPM under full load and also maintain the torque levels. So even with lower horsepower, and electric setup is way more efficient and powerful than a nitro motor.
