    E-Slayer Prices

    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:
    screws set
    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

    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.

    Ok, I'll look at them and talk to my brother on what he might want, but they seem like good options, thanks.

    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.
