50 bucks for the bl motor and esc.. youll need a new receiver and servo, possibly the controller unless u can find a 27mhz am receiver.. and horizon has it all in stock.

why would you have to get new servos, and reciever, and everything? because the circuit board was all in one? do you need anything if you buy the losi lipo pack?

the unit that comes on the truck is a 4 wire system. you would have to do major circuit brd surgery to get it to accept a servo. after that it would really be useless and take up space because you need the brushless speed control. the lipo pack is just what it is a battery and charger. it just has to be stripped. its a pretty easy mod but costs more than the truck did.
xceleron motor 26.99
speed control 29.99
jr servo 18.99
micro receiver 69.00 (spectrum)
2s lipo bat 7.00 built it myself

I knew the DT chassis was longer than the Micro-t/b chassis but wow I didnt know it was that much longer! Theres plenty of room there to fit some nice electronics on.

you also need the front shock tower but you dont need the wheels/tires but they look nice and make it ride higher because the tires are bigger and you need the body too
