Default Is there a brushless conversion kit for Serpent 977?

Back in 2014 there were plans for a brushless conversion kit for the 977 from Serpent. I can't seem to find any info on this or if it was ever made available for sale using Google. Would anyone know a parts number list to do the conversion? Thanks for any info

Electric conversions for nitro vehicles require replacing everything except the chassis plate, differentials, and suspension. A nitro vehicle with an electric conversion will also be heavier than an electric vehicle. Why not just build a new vehicle instead?

Serpent never released the 977e conversion kit, only the full kit. I'm guessing this was because only the front and rear suspension and bulkheads were the only things that were the same between the nitro and electric versions. Everything else was different. The 977e manual is where I would start looking to find the part numbers required to do the conversion.
