Until Losi offers a conversion kit, I don't think it will be cost-effective. I have a XXXT and a XXX, I wondered the same thing.

It'd be nice if there was a conversion and it was really quick to perform. I get the impression that there are advantages to both the BK2 and KE setups.

There really is no advantage anywhere to running the old car.

Losi doesn't have plans for selling a conversion kit yet, but I'm sure it has been done to the buggy.

Shortly after the B4 came out, I read where a few guys had converted their B3s to B4s. It is possible, but is it worth it? Time, money, frustration? Sounds like fun to me!

Converting a B3 to a B4 is hard to believe..the B4 was an entirely new car.

If Losi does decide not to sell a conversion kit, it is because it simply wouldn't be cost effective to sell at a reasonable price.

I'm going to sell my BK1 here pretty soon, and get the BK2.....then a little while after that, I'll do the same for the MF2. I'm happy with both my cars as it is right now, so I'm in no hurry.

What do you think a reasonable price would be for a XXX BK1 that has the aluminum f/r pivot blocks trinity aluminum screws (in stretegic areas of course) BK front tower? No electronics.

To do the conversion costs over $110, better to just sell the old Losi and get a new one.
