You can definitely do this. The L8ight is an onroad car (though it's marketed as an oval car) in the sense that it has all the necessary body mounts to use all the Kyosho 1/8th onroad bodies that fit the IGT1 (Ferrari, etc). You can convert your 8ight to a "L8ight". I just got on Losi's site and found the parts necessary to do this (shock towers, body mounts, bumper mount, bumper). Make sure you don't use bodies intended for the Kyosho IGT2 however.

It also uses a different shock tower so the shocks can be stood up.

You will want to get stiffer springs for onroad use though. I tried the white/gray springs and they're not stiff enough.

Losi released some stiffer springs that I ordered and will try. If they don't work well enough, the guy from rc4less will have much stiffer springs available soon.
