I have. Twice. Works great and lots o' fun. Losi put all the parts into one bag but I can't find it right now. At our LHS there is a bag sitting on the wall and if no one has posted it by then I'll post it up.

The conversion is only, Front/Rear shock towers, Front/Rear body posts, Front bumper, and I think there is no hardware included. Also needed would be a set of front shocks to mount on the rear. All total is like $125.

1)Front shock tower
2)Rear shock tower
3)Front/Rear body posts
4)Front Bumper
5)Complete Front Shock Set to mount on rear

I noticed that a while back. For some reason Amain isn't worried about the oval racing. Off road sells better I guess. LOL. Plenty of other places though. Amain isn't the only on-line place to buy Losi parts. Just google the parts.
