    1/8th power system.
    I converted a buddies this summer for less than $200 shipped to my door. This included a 2650kv 1/8th scale motor, 150amp ESC and program card, 17 and 21 tooth pinion, and two 2S 5000mAh 45-90C LiPo's.

    The ESC/Motor required some soldering...
    I would say a project level of 8 out of 10 due to the need of soldering skills.

    Other than that, everything bolted right up.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Do you have to use two brushless motors to replace the twin brushed motors? I have a chance to buy a emaxx brushed for 125.00. Good deal?

    Good deal if not too much is broke.

    Just 1 1/8th scale motor, as stated above.

    So no other parts are required?

    Go for a 2200kv motor a 2650 is more of a buggy motor
    Which brushed e maxx is it?
    Might be better with a 3800 depending on the model

    You wouldn't need the big motor. Read this http://robotwars.00server.com/emaxxfaq.html
