Default Converting RC8T to SC8

Im going to convert all of my spares for my RC8T into a new SC8. I have all the parts like diffs, chassis, radio tray etc, but what dedicated SC8 parts will i need to buy? I no i have to get the body, rollcage, buggy arms etc...

Has anyone tried this or does anyone know of a website or any informational material on performing this conversion.

Thanks

SC8 shock towers

body mounts

Thats good, cause you still need to learn how to drive the rc first before you spend more money on converting one ;-)

I was actually wanting to convert my SC8 to RC8T, but gave up when I started to realize how complicated it is and how many parts are required..

You need:
1.) shock towers
2.) buggy arms
3.) buggy CVD's
4.) not sure on the diffs. Are RC8T and buggy diffs the same? Not sure..
5.) bumper set..
6.) roll care
7.) body..
8.) buggy or SC wheels/tires
9.) Not sure on the chassis braces..
10.) 16T or 17T clutch-bell
11.) buggy spur-gear..

Etc..
