      When we first interviewed Todd Hodge about the 1/24-scale Micro Rally Car and Micro Short Course Truck, he hinted there might be a Spektrum 2.4GHz and brushless conversion coming sometime down the road. That time is now here as Losi has an all-in-one Spektrum 2.4GHz conversion kit that can be used with both brushed and brushless motors. There are two different conversions available; one that simply converts your vehicle to Spektrum Technology, and a second that also includes a brushless motor. Losi has also managed to design the components so they not only fit in the 1/24-scale chassis, but also in the smaller 1/36-chassis such as the Micro-T and Micro-Desert Truck.

      Frank Root has been intimately involved with this project since the very beginning. Frank joins us in a pair of videos to show you how to install these systems in your chassis. Frank walks you through the disassembly process of how to remove the stock radio gear and motor, how the new gear gets installed and how to setup and bind your system to your radio. There are two different videos to help you with this installation for both the 1/24 and 1/36-scale chassis.
