    I completely understand that. The ESC/Motor/Electronics are the same from what I see, those are typically the highest priced parts outside of the actual hull.

    Parts needed to convert a Spartan

    Has anyone gone through to see what it would take to convert a currently stockish Spartan to one of these? It looks like there are quite a few interchangeable parts.

    Spartan/TSM?

    What can did you go with? I had an 8.5 inch 300BO upper built for my SBR. I ended up building a 5 inch 9mm and selling the BO. I was just punching paper with it, so the 9mm does what I need for it...

    Hmm, I've never broken one of those, I've had the screw come loose and lost one, but never snapped that part. I'd send an email.

    That's the weakest point of the stub axle, it has a hole drilled through it. I even broke the MIPs there until they went to a keyed setup.

    The perimeter is all C channel aluminum, my advice is to make sure you've got a good way to cut the aluminum. It's all riveted with some JB weld Steelstik to smooth it out, and reinforce it.
