I believe people use the SC8 parts to perform this conversion.

Is there any reason you don't want to buy a SC8? It handles MUCH better than a converted RC8 due to the Truggy chassis being slightly longer. All the parts with only a few exceptions are interchangeable.

But if you want to do the conversion, go to Associated's website www.RC10.com and go to the forum section and you should find instructions on what parts you need to convert.

Hope this helps.

i have an sc8 and an rc8B, and i think the sc8 drives like a tank, catches wind when it jumps and always seems to land on the right side.. but i still like it none the less, this little conversion of mine is just something to play around with, thanks for the link. ill check it out
