there are no ways to do it without heavy modding.. shock towers will need modding and it will need body post and it just seems like way to much work.I would keep the d8 for offroad and get a ofna oval latemodel they seem to be really good on the track and are pretty fair priced compared to losi.

losi wider hubs will fit HB axles, to push the right side out, next is locking up the center diff, as far as body mounts be creative, last is gearing, and oh yeah have a blast, please post pics of your late model converted D8
