Questions?? Nitro Sedan Covert to Brushless Build Thread

Here's what i have done so far:

*picture

Pulled the engine, gas tank, throttle/brake servo, and flipped the top bracket over to the opposite side. I moved the top plate over so I could mount the motor down on an area that didn't already have holes drilled everywhere.

I'm looking to fabricate or buy a motor mount. I'm getting the angled aluminum for free, but I don't know if my dad's old drill press still works. If i could find a nice motor mount for less than $30, i'd go that route. The mount needs to allow for mesh adjustment so i'd have one static screw hole and the other will be curved. the opening for the shaft bearing will need to be oblong.

Scrap aluminum:

I can order replacement spur gears but only a 42T.

I don't know what motor/esc I should get, but im not limited to a 540 size, i have the space for a larger motor diameter. I've been trying to look it up but it's hard since i'm working with a 42T spur. i'm finding alot of nitro stuff and the Backdraft 8E but thats a 20lb 1/8 scale buggy so that motor wont be too great on this 1/10 touring sedan.

AS far as the ESC, HobbyKing has a HK-60A ESC for $25. It's OOS so might as well move up to the $40 HK-1-8-80A sensored ESC.


A TP540-11.5T 3350kv Brushless R/C Car Motor w/sensor is only $25 but i don't think that will get me to the speed i want. I'm looking to reach about 50MPH.

Will a HK-1-8-80A ESC and a XK3650-10500KV Sensored Brushless Inrunner get me goin about 50MPH on this 42T spur? Those are $40 a piece so i'd be looking at $80 for the set.

Hmm... Wonder if the spur gear on a 1/8 size motor would fit better than a 1/10.

similar cars have been done for offroad by the manufacturers such as the Losi electric ssc short course truck w/aluminum plate chassis. The increase weigjt is forcing others to increase weight so not to be push around by heavier car. If succussful this could also be a nice force against all the current weight weenies on on road and force them to add weight.

One thing. if you have a heavy car, you should run a torger motor with low kvs. but I like to idea and hope you get it running.

I'm sure I will. I just bought the mount and the motor and esc are already on their way here. I need to learn about programming now. Do i need a programming card? are they universal, liek if my LHS has one open, would it work on this?

I suppose if this car is too heavy for this motor, i could cut a chassis out of plastic. With the upper bracket, it should be sturdy enough. I want this thing to launch like mad and have top speed as well.

Now is the hard part... WAITING FOR THE PARTS
