I got this M8 TM buggy from mister Germanese himself, with the intention to make it a A123 runner. I got my motor and ESC today and I'm still seeking a proper motor mount. Waiting for RCM reply on a mount. ESC will be a Schulze 18.97KW and a Plettenberg MAXXimum.

I have one of the c40 in my 1/12. They are regular size 540 motors. But if you take the heatsinks away, they are essentially the B40 motors.

I would think the weight is the same, as when I first got it. Just the gas tank came off, servo mount cut, nitro mount came off and the light weight tekno motor mount and battery tray went it. I'm waiting for that ACEpow 4s pack to run it.
