You mean besides the B4 Suspension Components found in the BJ4, and the MIP CVD's, and the Associated Factory Team Titanium Turnbuckles, and the Factory Team Threaded Shocks, and the Factory Team Unobtanium Shafts? Sounds like more than the "B" and one of the "4"s to me.

A car isn't built around shocks and turnbuckles. It's built around a platform, in this case the TC3. You'll likely see a conversion kit to turn a monkey into an elephant before you see a conversion kit for a B4.

So to answer your question....never gonna happen.

Perhaps just a no next time instead of showing how little you know about how many components the two vehicles share.

As opposed to how little you know about what a conversion kit entails.

On a side note, I'm thinking about using your heatshrink idea for wires in my cars. Never saw that before and think it's clever.

Are you implying that a conversion kit never included a chassis? You aren't that dumb are you? But if I remember your "the only thing they have in common is B & 4" comment I already know the answer to that question

Chassis, drivetrain, differentials, shock towers, top brace...they already made a conversion kit. It's called the BJ4. I'm ready to move on if you are. I've got porn to surf.

Moved on, but I would like to see a cheaper kit that would allow me to save some money as I have a back up B4 I dont use. I could just order the parts seperately but I'm lazy.

4WD conversions for 2WD buggies have been made in the past. Infact two different versions were available for the old tub chassis RC10. I have a MIP 410 Legend converted RC10 sitting right next to me now. I can post a pic or 2 if you would like. I don't think you'll see such a conversion for the B4 though. There is just not enough room up front for a transmision and the wheelbase is a bit short for a 4WD buggy (noth that you couldn't use a T4 cahssis). Besides it is much easier to convert a proovern 4WD platform such as a TC in to an off road 4WD buggie. I suspect with all the new 4WD buggies in the making you'll see less of the converted TC's out there, Minus the BJ4 which I would hardly considder a conversion any more since the latest change made to the car. Any way just my 2 Yen worth.

Yep, if you want a 4x4 I think you'd be farther ahead to sell the b4 and buy an academy 4x4. They look really good to me.

If 4x4 gets bigger in my area I would love to have one. Since I'm an Associated fan I would get the BJ4 as that is as close to Associated as one could get Ironically Losi has been playing with the JRX4 which is a JRX-S converted into an off-road vehicle. Wonder if there will be a conversion for that

Anybody got a part number for those Yokomo bleeder caps? I think I'm going to order about 12 packs of them.

Pretty happy with myself today.Nothing better to do so I fixed up,rewired,cleaned and pretty much redid everything on my T4.It looks pretty organized so I am very pleased.Only problem was my "jumper wire wasn't the neatest and I had to use masking tape to cover it up.I usually use baclk electrical tape which makes it seem super neat.Just thought Id share.
