    I just finished mine, luckily enough I had some parts and it was pretty cheap, but you need to buy a forward conversion kit, so you can get forward and reverse...it runs pretty good..

    RE: Mgt 8.0 E-Conversion

    Ya i finished mine awhile back & have been trying to upload pics of it but can't seem to be able to make the original pics smaller to do it. What kind of Motor/ESC combo are you using, i'm using a HPI Q-Base system, 2350kv motor & 2x2s Lipo. Was silly stupid before but now that i have it electric it's the most crazy toy i have ever owned lol.

    RE: Mgt 8.0 E-Conversion

    I am running a 4 cell lipo system with an 80A xerun esc, as a motor I have a 2200KV 540L motor.. the setup is not that big, however I do not want it to be as powerful as my Mad beast, I want it more for like speed than bashing... I also locked the transmision on second gear, I never had an MGT before so I am not sure if my transmission is a 4.6 or a 8.0... the forward kit I ordered was for an 8.0 and it fit, So I assume it is a 8.0, I will try to upload some pictures soon.. How is yours holding up?

    RE: Mgt 8.0 E-Conversion

    Other than cooking my ESC today lol it's doing wicked! Is your spur gear on your tranny  Steel or Nylon Plastic? If it is steel then ya it's a 8.0 tranny as the 4.6 spur gear is the nylon plastic one & wont work on the 8.0 one. I did whenthe truck was still nitro seem to go through bevel gears alot but now ive had the same ones for about 3 months now. Have extra on hand just in case though. Also today i made a T-maxx steel roll cage fit & work on my truck! If you pm me with your email address ill send ya some pics of my conversion from start to finsh.
