Here's a start. Should only need center driveline to make a nitro roller.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hyper-9-Rebu...item2a257010aa

Hi ROSCOE,

Thanks a lot for the help, so do you mean i have to buy that package on the link? And what do you mean by 'center driveline'? Sorry if the question seems stupid, i'm just new to rc cars and got the hyper 9e used, but really like how it handles, just needs some smoke and sound to be more exciting, lol.

Hi Rsickles,

Thanks for chiming in, after some searches, i think there're still lots of parts in the market, and the hyper 9 is really a tough buggy(you should know how i know it)

Sorry, I was thinking Hyper Star, not Hyper 9. Not 100% on Hyper 9 status.

Honestly it will be tough to beat the price that the eBay seller has it listed for. To buy each individual piece will add up fast. Center driveline are your center shafts. The nitro buggy uses different shafts do to the center diff being in a different location. Also you may need the rear brake assembly and rear chassis brace. Personally it may be easier for you to sell the e and buy a nitro roller. Either way good luck.
