Not sure where you can find a conversion kit. One of my LHS use to carry it but I went to their website and it was gone.

Also, to make it a "true" XR, you may want some of the upgrades, although in my opinion, not all are necessary. Aluminum center diff mount, full universals, torque rods, etc. All of these parts cost a lot and is not worth it to put on an RR.

I have a near brand new XR for sale. Let me know if you're interested.

I don't know. I guess ~$250-275 rolling chassis seems fair now that the MBX5 is out. I can get pics up sometime too. Sadly, I didn't have the time to enjoy it so it saw very little run time.
