Default Team Associated NTC3 - Brushless conversion

I have a new, never used, Ntc3 Team kit, and I have not use for it because I hate every inch of nitro rc cars. Is there any way to convert it to brushless? I'm not really into DIY either, what can I do with this car?


Thank you.

Trade it in for a TC3/4 if you really hate nitro that much.

not living in the USA it's hard to trade or sell a car... especially an "old" one like the Asso NTC3.

And I will not sell it for 90$, after I paid it >700$ (with extra muffler, engine, starter box,...)

You'll be lucky if you even get half of what you paid for that. NTC3s are dirt cheap to get and a dime a dozen to find.

So, to answer your first question. No, There is "as I know of" no conversion kit on the market for the NTC3. From what I've seen, most people make their own homemade conversions for this car. The best start is to make a motor mount from a piece of 1/8" angle stock aluminum. You should be able to find that at your local hardware store. And with a dremel, bore out holes for the screw mounts and rotor arm.

I sold a similar car , slightly used for $125 , The best way to convert it is to find the cheapest flat chassis(RC8, Losi 8, mbx5/6b/t)) motor mount and drill to holes in the chassis to mount and find a battery tray and it is electric...Ive seen a few of these and they are eassy to build...
