    It is not a direct fit, the mounting holes are different for nitro and electric transmissions.

    Also, like 87GN said, the nitro transmission doesn't handle brushless torque very well. The gears...

    I run the Hitec HS-7955TG on 6.5v, with a Racer's Edge aluminum horn and Pro-Line steering arm on the HD spring. The metal makes for more responsive steering, especially with the servo saver arm.

    1717 on 4s geared 23/38 (shim the transmission up) with 6.1" diameter tires will get you up to 45mph or so (more with stock diffs), but it will probably fry the MMP in the process. The 1717 is...

    1717 on 4s is cool, but will really shine on 6s or 8s. ;) It's much louder than the 1515 too, and it sounds great.

    Congrats on the install, hopefully you will like it!
