    you need the brushless motor mount, a vxl3m and a velineon 380. that's all parts needed for the stock brushless conversion.

    I would skip the 3M and go for any 60+ amp ESC that is in your price range. The 3M is a known weak point.

    Here are the part numbers for the mount conversion:
    7077 Gear cover/Hardware
    7090 Motor Plate
    7060 Motor Mount

    You also may need a 2.4 radio system... some have glitchyness and some don't.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The side winder 3 is only $67, that would be a good esc pared with the velineon motor.
    With great brushless comes great responsibility.

    +1 on the sidewinder 3 paired with the velineon 380. Runs very cool. Only trouble I had was the brakes are insane on the sv3 out the box. If you go castle pick up a castle link USB cord lol!
