Default Nitro to Electric SHUTTLE CONVERSION ADVICE NEEDED



After considerable searching the net, I have found a Nitro to Electric Shuttle conversion.
Shuttle +
Anyone else using this conversion?

Have any advice,

Suggestions?

Working in the Dark here guys, this is going to cost me about $600.00 buy the time I pay taxes, duty and get it delivered.
Don't want something that won't work!

Hi!

Sorry for the delay in replying.

I just built an electric conversion Lama, which is basically a shuttle in a scale body. I used the R. Feil conversion kit. He does one for Shuttle 30 plus2, as well:

The good thing about the R Feil kits is that they will work with more or less any appropriately sized motor & esc. I used Kontronik for my Lama. Be sure to specify the motor shaft diameter if you order from him. Mine was 6mm.

I also got great support from him on the selection of components and the build.

This German shop also does loads of Hirobo electro-conversions.

I'm sorry not to have an N. American references, but based in Brussels I try to find local providers to avoid importation taxes...

Ciao,
Bob

I used this one when I converted my old Shuttle.

Well worth it.
