Make sure you have a fire extinguisher close by since running 6S on a 2250kV is a bit much juice and then geared at 24T or 30T. It should give you a pretty decent mushroom cloud at the end of the run.

Well after I crashed the TM buggy, I decided to finally convert the truggy that I have to an onroad truck. I used parts of the TM buggy, Hyper 7, Jammin Castle conversion and parts I got from my buddy TC5racer. I am using the motor mount and battery holders from the Castle conversion kit that is being sold for 25 bucks. I have some parts to add on to the Jammin. I will most likely get the Associated SC body. Wheelbase is about 14.5 inches. Motor of choice is the 1520 1600kv Castle motor that mostly likely be powered by 8s Lipo. Goal is to make it to an efficient onroad basher. Slow build as I have little time.

8S setup. Cheapo old jr650 servo. Still need to work out some details.
ESC is the LT-120A car ESC. It's rated up to [email protected] cont. And this was used in both my Rustler and first GTP on 10s A123.
BEC will be the 8s 6v park bec from Dimension engineering. Another option is to run a 2s lithium pack with the park bec for a cleaner install.
Gearing right now is set at 46/25.
Tires will be GRP's. Wider Ipanema's later on.
Using King Headz rear hubs for the ease of changing wheel base length and not messing around with plastic clips.

Yes, those are the EC5. Deans get too hot with high current setups.

I like the EC5 connectors but they are a pain to take off sometime, especially when you are in a hurry. I kept them on my Losi 8E for a while and then just switched over to Traxxas connectors. Just my .02

Here's a few of my Jammin X2 GT conversion. Posted most of these in the electric GT thread but I'll post them here anyway.

Is is possible to convert a ofna LX1E to a street car? Were do you get the front bumpers? My ofna is just sitting in my basement, I think I would have more fun with it as a fast street car.

Yes, bascially the same car as the gtp2 E and the oval gtp E,just shorter front shocks and shock towers,front bumper/mounts and pbs front, the oval has pbs in front and rear the gtp only front
I would go to nitrohouse and look at their parts list for the gtp or oval and look at what your parts you lxe has already.
