im pretty sure it will be a direct fit because if im not mistaken the 2.0 body has a long hole for the body post in the rear. its the same way with the buggy so id say yes you can..but someone correct me if im wrong!

I have both 1.0 and 2.0 truggies and I just did a check on the bodies for you. I am running the jconcepts 2.0 punisher body. The length is fine, but the width between the body posts holes on the 2.0 is wider.

to do a proper swap you need 2.0 tower's, body mounts,chassis and body...if you want to keep the stock chassis you have to cut the rear end off about 3-4mm and elongate the stock holes.....Kean losi guys can spot a 1.0 from 2.0 a Mile away....the 1/2 tire's are a dead giveaway next would be the extra long rear shocks.

Yep, go ahead and let Losi's sales pitch screw everyone on the different lengths. I measured from the front body post to the rear body post and they are both 14 1/8". I also noticed something interesting the other day. I am running the 1.0 with the king headz extended hubz with zero offset wheels. I didn't have a specific front tire in the zero offset that I was looking for, so I changed the front only back to the half offset wheel with the standard hubs. Guess what, the stock 1.0 with standard hubs is wider than with the extended hubs and zero offset. Having both vehicles I can say the 2.0 only outperforms the 1.0 on tracks that have alot of small rough bumps. If it's flat and nothing but jumps, which I have seen most seem to be, the 1.0 can still easily hang with the 2.0.

The 2.0 body on a 1.0 chassis will make the wing just about useless (it will sit at or slightly below the body itself).

If you look at a 1.0 body, it has raised points where the rear body posts come through. This puts the body itself down low enough to allow airflow to the wing.

The 2.0 body doesn't have these raised areas because the rear body posts are already lower.

It would be like having a rear spoiler on a (real) car's bumper instead of the trunk.

i was running an 8t 2.0 body on my 8T for a while.
the 8T tower has 2 holes drilled in the center brace that are perfect for a rear buggy body mount. all you need to do is cut the body 14mm shorter in the rear and use 1 body mount in the center
it works perfect

be sure to cut the body at least 5mm short of the tower and also slot the hole for the rear body mount. you will also have to trim the sides down alittle because the singl mount on the old tower sits lower than the 2.0 mounts. if you want you can just drill a 3rd hole in the tower above the othe 2 and that brings it up to the same height as the 2.0

this is not an 8T 2.0 body. but it shows how the single body mount works
