Need help converting Nitro car to electric.

Hello guys, I am from India, and have just joined rcgroups so please bare with me.

I need help in converting an old HPI Nitro Rush 2wd stadium truck with a .15 ic engine to electric. Have absolute no idea how to.
Do i need to attach a BL motor directly to the transmission ? How will it fit? What esc and motor kv specs are required? Its main spur gear is stripped of its teeth, will i need it? etc. These might be stupid questions to ask.. but, like i said....please bare with me.

Would really appreciate any kind of info on this issue.

That is a very specific job. I doubt that anyone will know exactly how everything will fit given that its an old car and that's a pretty big job converting to electric and a lot of money is waisted on parts that didnt quite fit.

My recommendation is get a 2wd slash vxl that is gobs of fun with durability and speed with a 3s lipo! Also it is reasonably priced considering how much you would spend converting that car to electric.

I think what was said above might be your best bet because this is an expensive avenue and not for the faint of hurt if your committed you can do it and we can guide you but not an easy project by any means
