Default convert rc8b to rc8t

Hi all. What parts are required to convert an AE RC8B to an RC8T. Is it just suspension arms, rear CVA and brace, and gearing? Thanks.

Chassis, Arms, Shock towers, maybe some tie rods, fuel tank, CVD's, centre drive shafts, chassis braces, diff gearing...

I'm not sure on Associated stuff so don't quote me on all of that.

To answer your question its not worth it, would be better to sell your RC8B and buy an RC8T instead. Too many things differ, only the diffcases and the wingmount are similar basicly. Or well the front and rear hubs and the spindles. But thats it.

Even though many parts are the same( diffs, bulkheads, radio tray, uprights, sway bars, T/B linkages, steering rack, top plate ) it's not worth doing because you need an RC8T chassis, F/R a-arms, all new CVD F/R/C, new spur gear, fuel tank, shock towers, clutch bell..it all adds up way to fast.
