Default Electric 1/8 scale!

I've seen a couple of conversions for 1/8 electric. Are they racing any of these out there any where yet???

Hi, The easiest conversion is the Kyosho Inferno GT2 nitro 1/8 scale.
There are a lot of conversion kits for this car to electric and are very
simple to do. They also have beautiful bodies. Regards

The only thing I don't like about those is they are 1/8 GT. I would really like to have a 1/8 nitro touring converted to electric. Speed Passion makes a conversion for the IIRC Serpent 960. I believe even Motonica makes a purpose built 1/8 electric.

I've seen a beautiful purpose built electric down at Gyro Hobbies in Lake Forest. I'll get down there and see who makes it!!

Hi, The Kyosho Inferno GT2 is not electric, it is a Nitro car that the conversion kit will convert to electric. Will send more info today

Hi, Here are some photos of the Kyosho GT2 1/8 scale nitro with the
Brushless electric conversion kit installed. Hope this helps. Just remember
that with the right motor/esc combination they are faster than the 1/8
scale nitro cars. The car below is not a GT but a touring sedan from the
DTM German series

This conversion was made by Fine Design RC who also sells RTR cars
