I would get a tekno conversion kit.. they are the best and available for many of the most popular truggies. Can't go wrong w/ the losi 8ight-t 2.0, even a 1.0 for that matter if you get a good deal, then use a tekno 2.0 conversion and the 2.0 center rear cvd to make a 8t 1.5

So why do you want to buy a truggy and then convert it? You could just get an electric truggy.....

Cheaply made I have 2 RC8Te and 1 RC8T ft and between the 3 I have only hade to replace a chassis brace and a couple of of broken rear arms. But if you have decided you want something else take a look at the MBX6T. The tekno conversion look really good just waiting for them to come back into stock for the RC8T
