ups... think it would be cheaper to buy a Nitro Version of it instead.
Here are the exploded views of the two versions, you will need to buy
close to everything of the nitro in spares. Maybe you can use a few
screws the hubs and parts of the fork.

Apart from that those bikes are very old and need a lot of tuning and experiance
to work. Once they are able to drive somehow the performance will never even
get close to the cheapest modern RTR.

Can you already drive a RC bike? If not trying it with a nitro might not be the best
of ideas.

Yeap, Edi is right.

I start the RC bikes with a nitro one (a clone of TT1n) and ... I spend more time to tune than to drive. So is now resting, providing spares for my other RCs

I was looking to convert my nitro to electric, just right the opposite you want, and I found out that you need to change the frame too. It just not worths the money. If you really want a nitro bike, get it ar a RTR. Don't go in modifications from day zero.
