    Yes nitro trucks can be converted to electric, depending on RC. There is alot nitro to electric conversion kits, there may just not be one for your particular RC. My farther in law has a savage 4.6 that he NEVER uses, I have been thinking of buying it off him and doing a electric conversion to it. What RC are you thinking of converting?

    You can indeed convert nitro to brushless. I have personally converted a Traxxas Revo 3.3 and a Losi Ten-T to brushless. Tekno RC makes several conversion kits for some popular vehicles as Madmardigan suggested. Tekno RC - Brushless Kits, Motors, Conversions, Parts

    It will take some, but done right, they usually come out great.
