    You need the FOC and then lock it in second gear to get forward, reverse, and brake on an electric conversion.

    With ESC that allows breaking and reverse, you will have reverse no-matter what transmission U have.

    Not without installing the FOC and locking second gear on the nitro tranny.

    Agreed. There is a one-way bearing in the tranny. With the FOC in, spin the spur gear the opposite way and the output shaft will not move. The gear needs to be locked.
