Default 8ight to 8ight 2.0 conversion

I was wondering if anyone has converted their 8ight to an 8ight 2.0?

I was thinking about doing it myself, and wondering if its possible and what problems people have run into. The parts to do it are pretty cheap on ebay from what i see. Is there a parts list of what is necessary to do it around?

If there isnt a way, I know some people have put 2.0 parts on the 8ight to make them handle better? What parts would these be and what kind of effect would they have?

It is possible but it will be almost as expensive as to just buy the new roller.

Are the diffs necessary to be changed out to the 2.0 ones? I know the diff cases were updated. Im really looking for best bang for your buck performance wise. I know the front steering geometry is way different and is better. Is that directly replaceable?

the new diff cases dont notch out like the old one do (well mine hasnt yet),


yes with the 2.0 steering rack plastic, for the money the 2.0 ackerman is worth picking up.....
