Get Tekno conversion or go cheap wit Integy conversion.
lock 2nd gear mod, check out YouTube on "how to lock 2nd gear REVO 3.3"
2200kv motor and 120amp-150amp ESC.
Lipo 5000mah 40c or higher.
Get the ERBE diffs or install the I bar, stock diffs don't last very long with the brushless power.

Good luck

Fyi, its the best electric MT truck that I ever owned.

Remember, Google is your friend, just google the part numbers and you'll see results and get way faster results then waiting for us to respond in the forum.

Integy:

There's also the RC Monster conversion:

Keep in mind that I think you'll need to source battery tray's and a mount for your ESC which is extra cost.

When I converted my old nitro revo to electric I used the Traxxas E-Revo chassis, trans and center shafts etc instead of making a conversion kit for the nitro chassis.

If you do use the integy conversion keep in mind that it needs to be modified to accept standard 1/8 scale motors. It is designed for 36mm diameter motors. Good luck with the conversion!

True, with 4274 size motors, I have to use spacers to bring the motor up and spacers to move the motor forward.

i am on budget... i dont think i can afford v expensive brush-less system.. can you please advise me system in 100$ range which i assume will also not require modifying integy conversion kit

i would go for 1/10 system... not 1/8

For a revo you'll want a proper 150a 1/8 system that will run 4s minimum for it, you'll run in to heat issues using 1/10 stuff. The revo is way too big for smaller 1/10 stuff to handle, trust us, it's not a good idea.

You'll want something like what's linked below, $150 isn't considered an expensive 1/8 brushless system when you look at other stuff out there from Castle ($275) or Tekin ($300+).

can u please explain in detail.. what alteration i require with integy conversion kit to fit 1/8 scale motor
