Default Mugen buggy to truggy

OK. Check it out,

I definitely have 2 full kits of the buggy and sets of 3's of some of the parts. So i was thinking, instead of buying a truggy kit, maybe i can get the parts that are not the same and get them on eBay. I was thinking i could get by with:

truggy chassis
front arms bottom and top
rear arms
center drive shafts and front and rear bones
steering linkage
rear arm linkage
front and rear shock towers
wheel hubs
body and body mounts
tires
side guards

the diff's, shocks, bulkheads, braking, radio tray, servo saver, ankerman, bearings, out drives, axles, front pb carriers, rear uprights and fuel tank are all the same right?

I think i could put a truggy together for about 250.

Did i miss anything?

btw, never owned a truggy before

Ring and pinions for the front and rear diffs are different for the truggy. I believe the spring in the servo saver for the truggy is stronger than the one in the buggy as well.

Put together a buggy and offer it for trade for a truggy... maybe someone will take you up on it... even if you have to put a few bucks with it you come out ahead.
