Finally, I noticed that the conversion has the battery positioned toward the front of the chassis unlike the 3.0 e-buggy which puts the battery on the back of the chassis. Is this a disadvantage or does it lie in the realm of different distribution of weight vs. the 3.0 e-version? I see drivers wanting to move the battery forward on their 3.0 8ight-e's which makes me wonder if the preferred route isn't a nitro buggy with the e-conversion. If there are any other equipment/setup variations that the nitro to e-conversion require over the OEM e-buggy, please let me know. I have an 8ght 3.0 e buggy as well so doing this may leave me with two e-buggies with different weight distribution. Thanks in advance.
The conversion, will work, but the setup of the car will have to be different due due to the different chassis and chassis layout of the 3.0 e car... I ran a converted nitro went it first came out it worked great, but eventually I did convert it to a real 3.0 e, they both worked great!
