Default Home Made, Low-Cost Electric Convertion

I present convertion of a Glow 1/8 TT RC model, it is a car of GS Strom 1 / 8 RTR, and decided to do a conversion kit for electric, in order to be an inexpensive kit, easy purchase and quick assembly.

The site has details of the construction.

Of course the performance, of such conversion has little to do with a brushless conversion, with material specifically for this purpose, and this only one solution Low-Cost.
I believe if electric-screw was a little better the car would also have a better performance.
To screw in question was Chinese and cost 20 €.

comment if you please

Is that a Raze bc I looks identicle to one.  I am asking bc I bought a 2nd raze for $50 and it needs an engine but I might go electric. I have 1 nitro so that pic gave me a good idea    Thank you
how does it run by the way

instead of using that motor mount, make a L shape motor mount. That way you have more options in terms of gear mesh and different motors.

couldn't you also make a mount plate that would take advantage of the existing nitro motor slots, lots of adjust-ability there

yup, thats what samgaun was saying about the L-bracket, something like this???

for my E chaos big enuf for a 540, mounts into the stock holes, i also mounted it, and soldered a nut onto the base so that i could just screw into it and now worry about having to hold a nut inplace

proper connectors or just direct solder everything. lipo with deans to wires that are way too small and not connected very securely.
