Default My Buggy to CORR truck conversion !

Well , here she is ! After talking about it all summer I finally started working on my Buggy to CORR truck conversion . []

It started life as an Ofna buggy and is now an Ofna CORR truck !

First a shot of the front bumper and body mount , the body mount bolted right up too the shock tower with no mods ! I did have too cut the body post off at an angle too get them too stand up straight though (the body mounts are from a Slash).
The bumpers are from an LST2 along with the front and rear skid plates , the brace is from the rear bumper of a REVO .



Now some pics of the rear bumper and body mounts , for the body mounts I cut off the rear wing mount at a 90 degree angle and bolted the rear mount too the wing struts. The bumper is put on the same way as the front but I used the front lower bulkhead for a JATO for the bumper brace .



And now some pics of the body on , it really fits great and even at full compression there is no rubbing ! Cant wait to get this on the track and mess with some Slayers ! Still gotta decide how I want too paint it , I am thinking silver with black and blue graphics ?





Probably gonna put an LRP Z.28 Spec 3 in it , that or a Mach 427 . [X(]

Soo What do you guys think of my conversion ? Sorry for the poor quality close ups , I spend all my money on R/C's not cameras ! [][][]

That "Go Lean" cereal in the back ground makes me hungry... LOL

Very cool idea, it looks like with just a few simple parts and a truck body we could all make one of these! Sweet! Xray 808 score truck coming soon! LOL!

Yep this would be easy too do to just about any buggy on the market , though an 808 is a little rich for my blood , I happend too pick up this buggy at the beginning of the summer very cheap with the intention of turning into a truck .
