Default Buggy fitted with short course body?

Has anyone done this conversion? Would you just need body mounts and body or are there other parts needed? Front & rear bumpers?

cheers

Great question, I'd really like to do it. I know with the Losi 8ight there's a shock tower you can get to do it. That being said, it seems like that it wouldn't be necessary if you can figure out a way to mount some body mounts for the front then just use the wing mounts for the rear. I just want to see some pix of it done already.

We have done several conversions using 1/10 SC bodies.


The coolest thing now.... DE RACING is soon releasing 2.2/3.0 wheels that will fit 17mm hex!

If interested in the wheels or a conversion contact me.

PM or racecrafter@gmail.com

That is sc10 body. Blitz body is better because it is wider.
