Default MBX to SC

I want a 1/8 SC, AE seems to be the best choice. Would like to know if Mugen will bring one out or a conversion kit for the MBX. I got som many mugen parts, hate to get rid of my buggy and start over. I converted one to LM and is great. I would like to hear from anyone who my have done their on conversions. Nice to have pics and parts list also.

i did it to a 5 a few years ago .... savy front and rear bumper and t-maxx alloy body mounts and thats about it ..and custom lil bits of alloy right-angle with a few holes in it to mount the body mounts to the sup tower.

dont worry about the bodies i have .. at the time the SC bodys were way to price'y in AUS so i just went for revo ones as a lil kinda mugen monster truck .. the savvy bumpers and bash plates line up to the mugen chassis holes so they bolt straight on .. just up the spring rate cos of all the extra weight ..
