Brushless Monsoon
1 Attachment(s)
This is my latest victim built with all Redcat parts. 8E ESC, motor, batteries, battery hold downs, and motor mount (slightly modified) and yes it hauls a**

That's cool!! What conversion kit did ya use?? Or did ya just use stuff you already had? I was wondering if anyone had converted one to electric.. Looks sweet!! Cant wait to see the vid!!

I did it all with parts from a Backdraft 8E. I was inspired by this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuOzJ2jT78Y

RE: Brushless Monsoon
So did you use the backdraft motor mount, and redrill new holes. I may have to look into this. There are cheap rollers for hurricanes at rufaster i think it is.

RE: Brushless Monsoon
Yes it is a Backdraft motor mount I cut the diff mount part off and did some filing to the bottom to make it sit flat on the chassis. Drilled and countersunk a couple of holes in the chassis and there you have it.[sm=idea.gif]

RE: Brushless Monsoon
Aint nothin wrong with drillin and countersinkin'!! As we see posted alot "that's half the fun of the hobby"!!! :) I've still never "converted" anything to use nitro from electric, or visa versa, but I've made a few parts from sheetmetal and carbon fiber.. It's cool when it all comes together and actually works as planned! ;) I wonder if any of the conversion kits they make for like the Kyosho truggy, would work on the Monsoon? (Actually, like anything else, I imagine any of em would work if ya dont mind drillin and cuttin a little..) Maybe your conversion will start a trend with the Redcats and we can see some of the stuff other members come up with!! I'll be lookin forward to it!! :D

RE: Brushless Monsoon
NICE!! I've been contemplating if I wanted to try a brushless monsoon, but i was trying to find a motor mount that would work. Never thought of using the 8e parts with a little modification. Looks like I have some ordering to do!

I'll try to get something together this weekend.

RE: Brushless Monsoon
Hey, just wanted to bring this back to the forefront.. Anyone else converted a Monsoon?? Has anyone found a motor mount that'll bolt up to the Redcat center diff, w/o having to modify it?? Lets hear about it!! :)

RE: Brushless Monsoon
I wouldn't mind a brushless XTR. Kind of a bummer that they don't have one
