If I had the money for a B44 I would totally do this conversion.But I don't right now becuase I am working on this project... http://rctech.net/forum/showthread.php?t=146640
It is basically a Tc3 that has been converted to a 4wd truck. So its alittle different then a B44 turned into a T44 but its the same concept and I thought I might share. If anybody is willing to lend me there B44 I would be happy to convert it to a T44. If there is a will there is a way. I bet t4 a-arms ,cvds,turnbuckles would fit. It really doesn't sound like a hard task.

I just converted my B44 to use QC GT2 wheels because I have a race on a very rough blowed out 1/8th scale track that I needed to use step pins all the way around and extra ground clearance.

Easy to do. I just ordered an extra set of bones for the B44, CVD kits, some GT2 Axles with retainer rings, QC Hubs. You will need 4 axle shims and 1 conical washer that you can use from the rear on the front on each side of the front to shim the hub out away from hub bearing carrier. The rear will need only 1 axle shim.

The front track is wider that the rear track that I may see if I can use the GT2 rear bones with either T4 or GT2 A-Arms. It also could use the extra shock travel of the truck too.

Everything fits up great and I am going to race it today.

Pictures will be posted when I get time.

YES! A 1:10 Truggy would be awesome!

I saw A Main Raceway had plans for making a truggy conversion kit for XX4/XXX4 -anyone heard anything more about that?

Anyone know of anyone having plans for making a truggy or a conversion kit for wholesale?

I did use a el cheapo HSP car, no something raceable without a lot of work on it, but still fun.

Same , I would buy a B44 only for getting a T44, 1/10 Truggy, probably awesome handling. Exactly what I'm looking for.
