    I'm gonna do it, I have made the decision.

    Time to take the next step and convert the ol' LST2 to electric.

    Got a few things for sale in the FS section, feel free to check it out and help fund this project. :p

    I was wondering why you were getting rid of that SICK Picco. :)

    Best motor I've ever had the pleasure of running by far. I feel the "old man" in me kicking in, I'm just tired of carrying around an 18v drill, a glow ignitor, fuel, glow plugs, air filters, temp gun and every other thing involved with nitro.

    I wanna drop my truck on the ground, flip the on switch, and rip....

    One of the advantages of Electric. :D
    Nitro is AWESOME, don't get me wrong, I love it.
    But electric is the way these days, considering brushless technology has gone so far, you don't need a combustible-powered engine to go highway speed anymore :)

    i did this and it was stinky fast. had the mamba monster
    and converted the tranny to foreward only with an aluminum single gear adapter from TDRacing,
    he also has the motor mounts and they are nice !

    i picked them up from " THE DUDE "

    I'll be rockin' TDR parts for sure. :)

    Just picked up a spare shim kit for my diff rebuilds, I have a feeling it's going to be important that they are shimmed PERFECTLY to keep this motor from shredding them to pieces.
