Ive done the savage nitro to electric. You just spend lots of money and it didnt last long. Just throw it back in the trash. Unless u like modding and customize. Dont forget battery frays is gonna be like $30. And then electronics. Another $175. Half way to a kraton.
You make a valid point, don't sink any real $ into it. But there are ways to do it on the cheap and have some fun modding and driving. I personally would find free or buy cheap 1/8 buggy basket cases (under $40) and convert them to brushless on the cheap. $10 sheet of Lexan to make multiple battery trays, Velcro battery straps from the fabric store, scrap metal motor mounts, etc. I had one Castle MMM/2200 combo and JR9000t servo that were literally in half a dozen buggies. I'd just pound them into the ground and when they weren't worth buying parts for, salvage what I could from them and drop the electronics into the next one. That was about the most fun I ever had with rc. Then I ruined it and bought a brand new buggy.
