Convert to Electric Car?

Ok i had a powerful, fast, and great RC car, but the carb went out, i tried a different carb but it just wouldn't turn over, how can i convert it to Electric and still be fast?

buy a new carb or a mill its not worth goıng electric. I never got the same feeling from electric.

Well i had this little electric buggy thing that went almost 30mph but the steering failed and i wasn't able to find something like the servo that was in it, to replace it. That thing was a beast, almost 16volts.
if u want a real beast scrap the T-Maxx and get a HPI FLUX if i ever go electric again ill get that but for the T-Maxx get a new carb and don't waste too much money on it do u want to run 2 motors of 1 i can give u a rough estimate for ur conversion .
it will be fast but it will cost as much to get a new carb. With electric you wont get the same feeling as a nitro.
What truck or car do u have

Also it would turn over and i tried carb cleaner, but wouldn't actually start.
