I have converted a "Chinese" nitro buggy (1/10 scale) into an electrical powered rally car, without a kit conversion.

The first thing is to disassemble the nitro engine, brakes, exhaust pipe, throttle servo and nitro tank:

The motor mounting adapter can be bought from ebay or aliexpress. It's very cheap.

This motor (Graupner 600, 550 size) can operate at 2S or 3S Lipo:

I put the ESC, receiver and battery. The battery is fastened with "velcro":

I also changed the body for other, "Citroen ZX rally" car , and adapted the mounting posts with aluminum profiles.
