Default truggy conversion question

hi i have an inferno mp-7.5 kanai and am looking to convert it to a truggy but dont want to go the whole way, i heard you can do it an easy way.
which is hub extentions and truggy wheels but how do i mount a truggy body with buggy shock towers can u buy fittable truggy body mounts that fit directly onto a buggy so i dont have to buy truggy shock towers?

any advice plz thankyou.

Buy some body mounts and use some angled aluminum and make a mount off the shock tower. Ive seen this done tons of times.

well yeah i have recently replaced a 46 tooth for a 48 spur so ill just go down a little on the clutch bell teeth to say a 12 from a 13 should do the trick.

does anyone know if you can get premade truggy body mounts to fit directly to the buggy with out changing the shock towers because i have no idea how to fit body mounts to an aluminium angle to the shock towers and still have it fit a truck body i have a fair idea but premade ones would be nice if they are made.

or a pic of a home made one would make it easyer for me then an explanation of it.

An even easier way to mount a body on an Inferno is to by the Kyosho ST-R body mounts and with just drilling four holes on each tower you're done. Or for very little money get the shock towers for the Inferno ST off the Kyosho America site which have both the height and the holes for the mounts. Get the stock towers not those for the ST-R.
