Default Hot Bodies D8 to D8T conversion?

So I am looking into acquiring a D8 from someone who will be trading for a car that I have. After looking into it, I am really interested on the D8T. I did some searching and havent been able to find what I am looking for. What all would I need to convert this to a D8T truggy? I know obviously the chassis is different, and I am assuming along with that, the rear shaft is different, but what else would I need to do it? Thanks in advance!

just go by a new d8t. There are all the drive shafts, all a arms, rear shocks, rear shock tower, gosh the list goes on. The rear shocks and tower is 100 dollars alone. Its too much.
