I just converted my sc8e to a rc8e. You will need the following to convert to a 1/10 SC. Using the rc8 chassis will give you the exact wheelbase as the Slash 4x4.

Chassis plate
Front and rear chassis braces
Center dog bones
Center diff raiser

To convert to rc8e, you will also need bumper, shock towers (I kept the sc8e ones), wing mount and wing.

I believe it will still be too wide, by about half an inch.

The width of the Ofna Hyper SC is 279mm
The width of the SC8e is 305mm

So, the chassis will make it the right length, it is still too wide. Please let me know if I am wrong as I would live to convert mine!

Here's what I found.

Slash 4x4 width 296mm
Slash 4x4 body width 292mm
SC8e width 305mm
SC8e body width 290mm

I remember putting my Slash 4x4 body on my buggy conversion and it look fine. I have also seen threads where people put the sc10 bodies on the conversion.

ooh So Neo, You have any part #? Being a newb to this kit I haven't a clue. So with the 1/10 conversion it seems that other SC bodies will work. Hmm

I got the rc8 chassis for $41 plus shipping off ebay #89000
Center CVA bones #89103
RC8 RTR chassis braces #89258
I made my own center diff raiser, but if you need to get one it's #89502

I already sold my Slash, so I can't put it on and see. Here's a link to someone converted a rc8e to a sct.

BTW, when you build your kit, put thread lock where the instruction tells you. I have thing come loose because I ignored it.

Default The SC10 fits it

I see others using the SC10 body as it covers the wheels and fits the chassis. I also hear that the blitz would fit over the wheels too but its unconfermed. Im up to no good now cause someon gave me a Losi 8ight and im fitting some SC bumpers to it as best I can and fitting body posts too. These friggin things are ROCKETS with 2650kv Tekin and a 4s pack I will posst some pics in a 8ight to SC 10th thread soon as I get farther. thanks again for you fellas input
