Default B4 conversion to T4?

I was wondering if it is possible to convert an Associated B4 to a T4? What parts need to be changed out, or is the chassis just different? The reason I ask is I was offered a really good deal for a B4 but I prefer trucks. I may just run the buggy but I figured I'd ask.

Yes a longer chassis. You need to change you arms, tierods, shock towers and also the rear CVD's if your running them. Everything also can stay I think unless I forgetting something.

Why would I have to change the rear CVD's?

No you cant. you would need alot more than just that to change the car...... and even if it was possible it would be very expensive

it would be cheaper to just buy a Factory team T4 and sell your B4, it is possible to do, just real expensive

rcdude19641,

I was just naming the those parts off the top of your head. Your best bet is just pick up a roller instead of trying to build one.

shocks, body mounts, body....

I picked up the $80 roller, and off ebay picked up the FT front brace, FT tie rods & FT battery strap, all for another $35. I would upgrade the shocks, but the blue ones work just fine.

please, just do it so everyone else who asks this question will realize it is way more expensive than just buying the kit.


but you have to post the results no matter how bad it stings.
