Default Nitro to electric

I want to attempt a nitro to electric conversion. I have 2 possible nitro donors, One is an Acme Cyclone pro, and the other is a tamiya TGS. Which of these will be easier to use for a conversion?

I am tempted to say Tamiya-but I like Tamiya. You may find that parts from other Tamiya cars will work with your TGS. It comes down to whichever you can get parts for easier and which has a better starting layout. Don

The ff01 is FWD. In brushless nothing stronger than a 13.5. Brushed,12T. Properly setup an FF01 runs very well. Don
