Why would you not just buy a real electric 1/8 buggy and be done with it?

It isn't like Duratrax is anything great to start with?

By the time you get done messing around, you probably could have just got a vehicle.

If you are outside the US, look for a Caster Racing sport roller or a Hobbytech sport roller for example.
I mass produced the first electric 1/8 scale buggy and truggy.
I have thousands of dollars of caster racing inventory available.

It's not that simple you're married. What do the my partner does not like my hobbies. No technical diving. And airplanes. And riding a dirt bike. I just have the car recently and I get to him he has a problem starting handle. How this car is bad DURATRAX. and if equal to arrange with him. has the drive system. whether this axis bearing pressure should get this. A THUNDER TIGER engine

Are you wanting to use the thunder tiger parts in the duratrax engine? If so, it wont work. You can put the thunder tiger engine in the axis buggy though.

Or if you want to make it electric, you can make a motor mount out of aluminum angle. Trim it and drill holes to bolt it to the frame, and bolt a motor to it. Then install the motor/esc/battery tray and it should work fine.
Too many R/C's to run at once...

you'll probably end up spending more money, time, and frustrated from where you are starting. I suggest getting a more purpose built platform...

And you'll get better replies from the electric off-road forums. They should be able to help you with your one-off project.
