Default Project XB8 convert it to XB8E

good Staff

My name is Ricardo
I am from Portugal

And recently got a Xray XB8 2014 and would like to help me .

Is there any way to convert it to XB8E , without having to change the chassis, it is possible?

With Aftermarket parts or so

PS . I still can not get a picture if it put

Best Regards

Yes Rc Monster motor mount for 808. Use XRAY battery tray and either cut stock radio tray or buy the E buggy receiver and servo mount. I have done both and honestly I like the stock tray cut so only front receiver box and servo mount is left, much more room inside the box than the E Buggy box.

He have the xb8 Nitro alloy chassis that was bought second hand. He wants to turn it brushless.

So you are saying that he can use the RC monster motor mount for 808, that will fit into that nitro alloy chassis? I am asking that cause the list from Xray to turn it into eletric involves a new brand alloy chassis...but that's expensive for a second hand bought

Is there any other motor mount options rather then RC Monster for the XB8 Nitro chassis?

As for the receiver box i think he can use the nitro one to as the servo mount? Or need the eletric versions?

Batery tray, any will do...i guess...

Yes they do.

Only modification you have to do is slightly move the foremost hole for the battery holder (the forward of the 2 x 4mm screws used) to align it to the chassis.

Everything else is a direct bolt-on

Motor mount part number:
-358782 or 358784, which one is?



-Batery tray part number, is what to?

Can give me this to help the guy?

The guy have the xb8'14 nitro chassis and with that motor mount only it will fit the nitro chassis. Alrright...but what is that part number?



-This is his chassis. He need what more? The servo mount is there for steering. Need to cut what and where more? That front right box is the batery for the nitro rx...and the one close to the central servo is the rx case? Can he mount that where removed the front batery box, or need the receiver box from what xb8e or xb9e for that nitro chassis?
