Can anyone tell me what parts are required.... or how complex it would be to convert an old MA X-Cell 60 into a gasser?

Is it just a matter or changing the frame set or is there a lot more to it?

Well my thought was as I plan on using them in scale bodies then the mechs and the tail will have a fair amount of seperation so it really doesn't justify a nice 'G' just to pull it apart and hide in a fuse.

Considering you can generally pick up an old X-Cell 60 in complete running order for about $600 - $700 and even less without the motor it makes them a nice option if they can be "gassed up" relatively cheaply. And of course the parts availablity makes them a nice option also.

I found this in a post from John Garst on RR;

-------------------------

Yes the SE can be converted to a gasser with a kit. Call Tim at Miniature to find out what all you will need. 1-352-383-3201.

I know of:
-lower side frames. #105-12 @2 ea.
-gas lower frame rails. #105-86 and #105-88.
- front vertical tray #105-10 (needs to be drilled for mounting SE tray).
-different spacers spools between frames. #105-16 @4 ea.
-4 @ 12 mm spacers (go between SE servo tray and lower frames). (home made).
-rear motor mount.#105-58.
- Shroud Support plate and bolts #105-46N and #105-33 @4 ea.
- motor mount spacers. #105-91 @2.
-clutch and bell w/14 tooth pinion. #105-78 and #105-64.
-gas fan and hub assembly. #0579-5.
-fiberglass cooling shroud. #105-52N

and of course the G-23 or G-231 and muffler of your choice. Everything else will work fine, including the canopy.

Hope this helps!
