August 25, 2006 - If you have ever seen one of Bari Musawwir's ECDR electric Monster Trucks at an R/C Monster Motorsports event, you know that they are fast and powerful! Have you ever thought of converting your nitro truck to electric?

Well an article published in Radio Control Car Action called Nitro Killer – Fine Design Team Losi LST2 Brushless Conversion, by Paul Onorato shows you what’s involved. Paul writes, “The technology of high-power electric brushless motors combined with high-capacity lithium-polymer batteries and heavy-duty brushless speed controls has reached the point at which we now see unbelievable performance that easily surpasses nitro power.” The Need for Speed; Paul writes, “When this converted monster launches off the line, the rear suspension is compressed under the load as the front wheels fight to stay on the ground, and it accelerates hard to a top speed of 41.97mph in only 4 seconds.” With a fully charge battery he got 16 to 18 minutes of run time.
