    That kit has been discontinued for quite some time. Likely only place they will show up is ebay, and I don't presently see any there.

    I see a lot of Nitro to Brushless conversions but none the other way around.

    Is there a brushless/electric to nitro conversion kit that one can just drop in?

    Not really it also depends on how extreme you wanna go with your build also.

    I see. Would've been cool tho if they did have a kit for that. I've always been curious about nitro.

    But I guess I could just look at the conversation process and just reverse engineer.

    Would be awesome to be able to switch back and forth.

    I was one of those guys that was hardcore nitro and thought nitro was better. But boy was I wrong and electric is the way the industry has gone. You can make more power faster and it's instant torque!

    Plus... Reverse, literally plug and play no matter how long its been sitting, no mess, "tune" once and go regardless of weather.

    Ok I guess I'm just mildly curious. Hehe

    I like brushless power for my go to vehicles. If I could only have one rc though, it would be Nitro. I just enjoy them more for various reasons.

    Yes I agree and I too still prefer nitro myself, the feeling smell and sound of having a real heartbeat, never gets old. You cant really drag you brake and give throttle at the same time to wip around rodeo style on any brushless truck most people i seen never even use the drag brake built it the esc other than rock crawlers.

    And people love watching them nitro go, even more so for the kids. leaving a cloud of smoke everywhere just seconds after you already changed course is so much fun.

    Its cool for me that the nitro power is there to go anywhere when needed, but not neck snapping like brushless, even ended up dialing down my esc over %50 on some setups, that still pop gears like they out of style

    As for plug and play on LiPo i think thats not fully true. The battery do get old i don't think you can pull a truck outta closet 15 years later like nitro and fire it up, I'm not crazy about having batterys laying around that can burn my house down either

    I find even way over powered brushless setups are so smooth compared to nitro. They just don't give you the same satisfaction.

    With nitro you are more involved, tuning and such. Brushless you just open your wallet then get the gear ratio right... done.

    I have been in the hobby over 30 years, got into nitro in about 1990 and really enjoy the engine side of it.... Tuning , the sounds and feel of nitro just does it for me.... I have Electrics also but my favorites of all are the big nitro rigs that always draw a crowd to see...

    Try alza racing they do lots of parts and top quality, also use your imagination. One thing to consider is the more powerful the more you need to upgrade. I'm running a max5 on 8s so it's taken over a year to eliminate weak spots and upgrade, but trust me it's a monster now
