I have a friend who used this setup (Lipo saddle/Bj4). He made stops out of plastic and bonded them to the chassis. It won't hold securely without some sort of extra structure on the chassis.

OK, thanks. Also, what kind of performance can I expect out it? After looking at pictures, it looks bigger than a 1/10th scale buggie (looks similiar to my borthers Mugen MBX-5R).

Will it run with a 1/8 scale competition level nitro buggy? I know I could get a 1/8thelectric conversion kit but I'd rather buy something that's engineered from the ground up to be electric. I want something that'll give my brothers buggy some competition on the track (without buying a 1/8th gas buggie kit.).

If its a smallish track it'll keep up. But his 1/8 will crush it like a bug if they tangle!

Trust me as am I! We're definately in the final stages though, as all the various tweeks have been made, and the designs have been finalized.

Also, I want to use my velineon motor, esc and the steering servo (it's a 110oz digital with good speed) from the rustler vxl in the buggie. Will that be a problem?

Thanks
I know that quite a few guys have used LiPo saddle packs in the BJ4 just be dremeling the stock battery trays to fit. Its a simple procedure that works well, and the straps will still work. As long as the speed control clears the body, Id be willing to bet it will work no problem. The servo should be fine as well, assuming its standard or near standard size.

They definately will be awesome! The RC8's popularity is assured, so we will defiantely produce a body for it at some point.

I think Yokomo already makes a BJ4 body that fits the BX.
