Default Will a Losi 8ight T 2.0 Body Fit a 1.0?

This may sound dumb, but I was always told there are no stupid questions if you are wanting to learn. Will a Losi 8ight T 2.0 body fit a Losi 1.0? I look forward to your replys. Thanks, J

I haven't tried it, but I am assuming no because the 8ight-T 2.0 is 10mm longer than the original 8ight-T. Also, the body on the 1.0 covers the rear shock tower while the body mounts in front of the shock tower on the 2.0. I recommend staying with a 1.0 body.

No. The body post are higher on the 1.0.

Actually it will fit with some minor mods.You need to buy the 2.0 truggy body mounts A4433.The fronts bolt right on to the shock tower and is just tiny bit off the width of the holes drilled in the 2.0 body.You have to slightly oval the holes in the body.For the rear mount you can use a rear body mount for the 8ight buggy part #A4424.If you look at the rear shock tower there are 2 holes in the center of the tower.You need to drill a 3rd hole in the tower above the original 2 holes for the mount to fasten in just to get the proper rear body height.That will give you just one mount in the rear but it will still be secure.You will also need to trim a bit off the back of the body because it is too long to fit.Hope this helps.I was just at a race this past weekend at Glenwood in New York and saw this setup,I will be doing it to mine shortly as well.
