As long as it's 2s I say go for it! Basically just a large saddle pack setup like that anyway.

How about parallel 2-2s batteries to gain more run time and yes more weight. Or shorty packs could save weight.

eBuggy light, right now at NorCal, consists of "run it on 2s and SC electronics". A Main started that way and moved on to bringing back 4s, etc...but for now, 2s is the indoor limit at NorCal, and how it has been done previously elsewhere.

As for weight limits, none are currently in play, but the number I've heard thrown around is 3200g for the future. In all honesty though, even before doing the conversion, my eBuggy was lighter than my 4WD SC, and my 4WD SC actually had things like CF towers and the like on it, while the eBuggy doesn't. In the case of the Tekno, there is just more weight lost in the chassis of the EB48 than is gained back by the 8th scale arms/shafts. I can just barely make 10 minutes as it dumps in a quick couple test runs this evening (7200 2s), and have about 25-30 degrees extra heat over running it in my SC, which keeps it just inside the safe zone without a heat sink or fan, but definitely harder on the electronics than with the SC. It drives more aggressive than the SC, but still not like a full eBuggy.

If the class takes off, which I hope it does, then I'll start lightening it more, starting with the drive train.

I cannot find any weight limit specifically for the elites. Just mention of them being identical to 8th scale buggies minus roughly 2lbs and the use of 2s 4wd SC electronics. The class is still in its infancy so I think there is a bit of wiggle room and interpretation as to specifications for now. I think running a normal weight ebuggy on 2s electronics isn't something we will see many folks do for too long as the electronics will burn up and those cars will be significantly slower than "legit" elites on 2s kit.

So for elites a weight limit, is their a max limit? I do understand the idea of the conversion. but when they are on the track they look like and use 1/8 scale body and tires. Peppy I suggest a b4 for simplicity and easier, better setup and handling.

Did some more research. The E-buggy super light class is actually intended to be 1/10 4wd SC's converted to 1/8 E-Buggies and is supposed to be 2lbs or more lighter than that manufacturers full fledged 1/8th E-Buggy.

2s 1/10 4wd electronics is one part but E-buggy lite cars are supposed to have lightened arms, towers, chassis etc. as well. And I believe there is a weight limit too.

So if I put a 2s and a 540 motor in my 1/8 buggy. It's all good? Those lites are still 1/8 buggys using 1/8 scale tires.

Racing usually starts at 10:30am on Sundays. The track is always available for practice if they are open, so you should be good to go.
