Yes many have done the conversion.  Losi even has a kit that you can get.  Some do there own conversion without the kit.  The Dude parts are a solid alternative for motor mounts.  There are a few sub threads under Losi monster trucks.

I did the conversion using the Losi kit, one way and single speed powered with a Mamba combo about this time last year.  Made for an awesome truck on two two cell batteries.  What are you trying to find out? 
The truck has enough power to it that I never had space to open the throttle fully.  Sold the truck late last year to fund my interest in boats though, still miss that truck.
