Questions?? Looking To Get LiPo Powered Truck or Buggy

I currently have a Revo 3.3 and am looking to add an electric truck or buggy to my collection. I am also into RC Heli's and currently have a Trex 500 that is electric and runs on 4S 20C 2100mah Lipo batteries. I am looking to get a truck or buggy that I would be able to use these same batteries in. Anyone got any suggestions?

Prob look at an 1/8th scale buggy conversion, or the 8IGHT-E 4WD Buggy?

The capacity is a bit low (2100mah), but could this be run 2 packs at a time wired up in parallel?
"Yes my car is technically illegal, but still its either just as fast or slower than any other car on the track so whats the issue with it being illegal?"

Since you want to use the same lipos you are probly on a budget. If the lipo will fit in a 1/10th scale truck then get a bl esc that can handle 4s and a mild motor like a 17.5 or milder.
