Default Change a rc10gt to electric! Possible???


I just bought myself a used RC10GT, and just wanted to know if it can be easily swapped over to electic.


And what parts might I need?

Hi jay1978, I don't know the RC10GT bu I have done a few swaps from nitro to elec. The main things are motor (brushless is the only way to go) ESC (electronic speed controller) batteries (lipos are the best) BEC (battery elimination circuit, no receiver battery needed) and charger. There are lots of advantages to both nitro and elec, but with the intro of brushless and ESC's (no more mechanical controllers) plus lipos elec is looking better all the time.

I think it would be easier / cheaper to get the rc10t4 which is basically the electric version of the rc10gt and drop a brush less motor and lithium battery setup in it. You would get better responses if you posted in the stadium truck forum or the electric forum..
