Default Full Video Tutorial on Brushless Conversion

Been working on this for a week hoping to help out some of you guys looking to do a brushless conversion, but don't know where to start. HINT: You'll want to stay away from the combo units, but you'll be able to crunch the numbers yourself to doublecheck anything you're considering. I happen to be using a WLToys 144001 for demo, but but this applies to all electric RC cars.

Part 1: Fitting parts.
You'll need to know how the components physically fit in the chassis.

Part 2: Component relationship.
Before getting into the complicated math, let's understand the relationship between the components. I use a metaphor here some of you dads can relate to.

Part 3: Component selection.
Choose parts to make sure your ESC doesn't burn up, your motor stays alive and that you're using the correct battery for your setup. Batteries have amp ratings too! Cruching the numbers. It's not hard. I promise.
