I would keep the gassers as gassers. You can get a 5sc flux for $700 if you shop around. I have one which is nice when I just want to run with almost no maintenance and can run in places where I can't with my gasser. The 5sc flux doesn't handle like a losi but it jumps really well on the track and is awesome as a basher...I have had it since last June and have broken almost nothing on it.....make some mods to the battery boxes so you can fit batteries of your choice and put nylon over the esc fan to protect it from crud and you are good.I already have two Hpi baja 5sc SS and 5b 2.0. I was just wanting something electric for my backyard without disturbing the neighbors with gas power noise.
