Default Converting old nitro car to electric

I have converted with a "Chinese" nitro buggy (1/10 scale) into an electrical powered rally car.

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.

Adjustment slots:

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

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

I also changed the body (Citroen ZX rally) and adapted the mounting posts with aluminum profiles.

This is the new car:

The car in action (video):
