There are a couple of guys here that has done that and they will chime in as soon as they see this thread I'm sure.
I have a Tmax and have thought about doing this as well. Guys tell me I should keep it nitro but I'm just not a fan of nitro since electric came around.

What do you guys think should I convert my traxxas nitro into electric
So this is my conversion I did at the beginning of the this yr. With a castle 2200kv monster 2. And a Revo 2.0 trans.. this trucks ridiculous...

I still haven't decided if I am converting mine or not but rest assured @StonerRC365 has me leaning towards yes.
I honestly just don't care for nitro.

My vote is NO but I like Nitro’s in those rigs
I agree there are made to be nitro but when you have the 2.5 original and a 3.3 that you built. And hear that they can be converted. We'll the wheel start to turn. So I looked around in here and rc universe, and another one. Everyone saying just put a foward only and your good. So you got enough parts laying around over the yrs. You start to think. Then you ask why not just use a brushless trans. They say only one would be the Emaxx that's a drop in. You ask what about the Revo 2.0. It's way better and it's said oh that won't work you can't get it to mount in a Tmaxx chassis. Well challenge excepted. So I built a converted Tmaxx with the Revo 2.0 trans. And a castle 2200kv. On 4s.. this T/Emaxx is ridiculous. Way faster and toruqer then any nitro Tmaxx sorry I love the Tmaxx have 3 but DAM man.. if you got parts laying around you should try it😁😁👍👍👍
