I can´t find any track for the 1/18 off road so now I want to change it in to eletric. is it enough to buy a new bottom plate, top plate and the battery holders and motormount and servo mount?

We have indoor tracks for that size car so thats actualy why i´m doing this , and because I lost my airfilter in a jump and compleatly destroyed the engine :-( with a new engine the same can happen again, with eletric it will never happen. other wise this is a total awsome truck with potiential to be at awsome indoor carpet racer but outside we only have very big 1/8 offroad tracks, and they are no good for this littel thing

How did you manage to destroy the engine?
ok, i know it from a savage but i'm just interested...

the electric ones are seriously fun.
if the diffs are the same it shouldn't be a problem.

A friend says , Why convert?? You look at Upper & lower plates, Power pack, plus options. You better off buying a M18T. You can rebuild the NT18 for less than buying a engine!! Almost the same price of a new NT18!!!

A new kit will not give the carbon parts.....
But you can also get a plate of carbon or epoxy to make a chassis by yourself.

Our opinion of 3 guys had with a cold one!!

Carbon chassis + Electronic power Pack approx. $205. An M18T list approx, $215. Engine for NT18 approx. $120, rebuilt with piston & sleeve, approx. $50.

Building his own chassis!! depends on him!!!

Just a opinion of 3 fellow racers!! Up to him to make the decision!!

I already have the power pack ! so I just need the carbon kit,
and the battery holders. engine mount in alu, ect .. are in the konvertion kit. it´s about 66 euro..

have already rebuilded the engine and have it up and running again but I´ll keep it in spare for my nt 18 onroad car :-)

Graphite Micro Truck Conversion Set - Blue Part number # 381171

Does not include the #382052 Alu Motor Holder M18T.

You will also need the rear stop for the battery holder from the Composite Battery Holder Set M18T Part number: # 386120.

That answers my Question!! Chassis & options, would purchase the Minimum, the M18T. He already have the power pack. Got the engine fixed. Now he has Winter car,& summer car!! Sure it all composite, He may find out he doesnt need it!!
He got the opinion of 4 people, 2 of them offroad, xray Moderator, & myself.
