Question Is it worth it to fix my old t maxx or buy used newer one??

I got a t maxx from my dad which he bought around 15 years ago (guess). it has the OS t maxx .15 in it and i think its blown. it takes a lot of time to start and when it does it either stalls if you start slow or has no power. we've tried to adjust the tuning but nothing really helps. is the super old chassis the same as the new one? can i just buy the new OS t maxxx .21?? is it a direct fit etc.? thanks kinda new to nitro

I've picked up several on e-bay and converted them to brushless motors lot less hassle.

You may have a bearing leak. Creates a vacuum leak.

I have an old Tmaxx 2.5 in my attic. I upgraded it to an OS .21 years ago, Fantom Tuned pipe, coil over shocks, etc etc. I'd LOVE to convert it over to electric. as stated above, someone does this with Ebay finds. Please post your details on how to swap over to electric, and what's involved.
Thanks
