Hi, I'm not usually in this area, but my brother is thinking of converting his slayer to electric. he's a newb with rc cars and even though I'm more of an electric guy, I can still handle nitro so I'm helping him with the conversion. So what I wanted to ask was; how much would it cost to convert the slayer to electric using the erevo chassis?
your looking at easy $300 or more
things to buy:
e-revo chassis (find one that comes with reciever box and under cover, otherwise buy it separate)
e-tranny (make sure its complete) or your going to buy more parts like motor plate, motor mount and cover
center drive shaft f/r
your choice of ESC/motor system range from $150 to $200+
your slayer body will be 1 inch shorter....e-revo chassis is longer than nitro

That's a good answer^^ but it also depends on the electronics u get but ya it's not going to be cheap
Yah, I did look at your build and it looked really good, but I don't want to do to much of the cutting up and bending parts and thank you for you answer. :lol:
with the tekno kit you dont have to cut or bend anything. i just did that to mine for LCG.
Ok, I'll look at them and talk to my brother on what he might want, but they seem like good options, thanks.
Thanks, I was going to ask this same question, never mind I guess! :rolleyes:
The tekno kit is veary nice, But you have to spend another $100 on stronger tranny gears to handle the brushless power. I built my E-Slayer with the E-Revo chassis and i think thats the way to go. It's just a cleaner setup and the whole drive line is built for brushless power. What ever you you go is a good way, They are both expencive. I just prefer the E-Revo setup.
