Question Electric conversion for my desert buggy XL?

Hi, my name is Daniel, and I'm new to both this online community and to 1/5th scale RC in general. I work at a local hobby shop in the Denver metro area, and I love me some crazy brushless electric power! I am reaching out for some advice as to where I can get a brushless electric conversion..gas isn't enough torque for my liking.

I plan to run the castle mamba xl2 combo CSE010009501 with 8cell lipo. I am specifically looking for a motor mount, ESC mount, and battery tray. If anyone could point me in that direction, it would be much appreciated.

I am also very welcoming to any other advice that may be shared with me, like if someone has either attempted such a conversion, though I doubt it with how new the vehicle is. Maybe some advice on motor/ESC/battery combos in a 5ive t conversion?

Anyhoo..thanks in advance for any help!

I made my own motor mount and it gives you all kind of pinion options. I ran it a few weeks ago and got 79mph on gps, with 8s using poseidon motor and esc. I will be at rcx in the poseidon booth this wknd, if you wanna check out the setup. thankx

They are launching at RCX you probably wouldn't have. There are a couple guys on YouTube testing them on speedruns. But they have some good motors. They even have a dedicated motor for the 5ive. Just come by booth if you go to the show.

There is this too, but I would request aluminum battery tray battery holders instead of the plastic.
