Thumbs up Nice!!!!!!!

For the motor plate you can also use the kyosho twin force motor plate. Which I will be using.. Only problem I have is making the center diff gear fit a pinion gear.. some one help.!!!

Why not just use stock center diff from the buggy you are converting? Should be able to use any motor plate you can get hands on. Just would need some modifications to make it.

just wondering did you try your electric buggy with two brushed modified motors. If you did how was the performance?

No - I run brushless in most everything I have. I saw a 1/8 scale converted to electric where the used motor and ESC from an EMaxx. But I did not do that. I only ran the motor and ESC shown here.

Cheers -

Not really given it much thought. The only CNC'ed piece in the article is the motor plate. Before doing that I need to find a cheaper price on the 6061 aluminum.

I have been looking and may have found some cheaper suppliers. Just now the shipping costs. I will be CNC'ing a servo tray for it as well in the future. I already made it in AutoCAD just need to take time to cut and fit.

As for a conversion kit - The main two parts are the motor mount and cutting the stock servo tray.

Other than that - The batteries are held on with velcro. Then buy a motor / pinion / ESC and batteries.

The motor mount is not hard to make or modify an existing mount like the EMaxx motor mount. Some people have taken a motor mount off the RC10T and cut it to fit their buggy.

Hope that helps.
