Default Converting Motonica P8.0R to brushless

I bought a second hand Motonica P8.0R rolling chassis and want to convert to go brushless.

What is the best choice for a speed controller, because the LRP say nothing about onroad only offroad. I want to drive 2x s2 lipo's

Is it allready been done by somebody?
hope to get some tips!!!

Edwin
