RC10GT Conversion to electric

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!

Is it possible to convert an old RC10GT Stadium Truck to electric?

To make a trainer for the children, a slow passive vehicle.

If so, is there a package available for conversion?

Where is a good starting point, what el.motor would I need, where do I shop for parts to execute such a conversion.

I am primarily an RC airplane guy, I don't speak the language of the cars and trucks, but I do own a car from about 1996 or so, the engine is defective.

I would prefer an electric vehicle for my kids to enjoy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Not sure if it would be cheaper to buy an RTR electric truck for $150-$160 for your kids to play with.

My advise... buy a used traxxas slash or similar. They are tough, lots of parts support and have a 50% training setting.

Even if you could convert it, due to its age it would probably break quite often and where are you going to get parts?
