sounds to complicated,you are going to have to put your trust in someone you don't know.mailing your bike back and forth and keeping your fingers crossed tight,I would ebay the bike out and talk to one of the dealers to build you a rtr,or wait for a rtr on ebay..Just my 2 cents..

A majority of the fun in the R/C hobby is building things yourself; this is why many say that the RTR concept has ruined the hobby. But I feel that it is more good than bad in a way.

Anyway, I agree with HobieHernandez. Sell the electric bike and parts on ebay and buy a nitro NF as a whole so you don't have to worry about the darn conversion.

lol,.... I live in OZ,... Send it to me, i'll fix it for'ya,... i've converted a TT before...! But seriously, like the other guys said, you don't even know who we are, it's like sending off $1000 bucks in the mail and hopeing that the other guy sends it back,... that's some pretty strong trust you'd have to have in someone...!!!!!

BTW, RTR stands for "Ready To Reck",... I've seen too many people buy RTR's and they don't know anything about their model, fixing it etc,... build it yourself and you'll know everything there is to know about your model...!

I like the other idea, sell it on ebay and get the Nitro NF...

I have to agree. Build/convert it yourself, it's alot more satisfying.
I'm in the process of doing a nitro conversion on the rat shack bike. Now thats a challenge.

It is my opinion that you have to be able to work on a Nitro bike (or anything Nitro) in order to enjoy it.
I cringe when I am in my local hobby store and people bring back Nitro cars so that the owner of the store can start them up.
If you can't work on them I would recommend against them. You can have alot of fun
Heck, for me working on the bike is MORE than half the fun.

It might be cheaper in the long run to keep the tt as an electric,and just buy an nf nitro.I run the electric almost every day and run the nitro on weekends.by the time you modify the tt for nitro you will have spent as much as an nf nitro kit.but no where near the quality.

I've been looking all over for a part number for the NF nitro side plates and the fuel tank and have had no luck.
Can any of you nitro NF owners tell me what the part numbers are for those?

Mike,
Side plates are X204, fuel tank X205.

But you will need the filler cap too, X207
