Default Serpent Truggy conversion

I have been trying to find a conversion kit for the Serpent Cobra 811T but have not had any luck. I saw someone here has a converted one and was wondering if it was custom or a kit. I searched here and Google and could not find any info...anyone have any info????

RCmonster has a kit. I think they have it labled for 811 buggy but it fits right on the truggy. I put a losi battery strap because the one that comes with it will only work with a 2s batt why I dont know. I hope this helps

yes!!! That is what I was looking for. I could not find it in the RC-monster site...but I was looking for truggy not buggy. Now I know and bye the way your truggy was the inspiration...that thing looks crazy good...can't wait to get mine up and running.

How is the drivetrain handling the brushless?

Was thinking to make a new RC8T but seeing how the monster conversion bolts right on the snake i'm tempted.

If the serpent uses spical cut gears trust me it will handle the brushless power with no issues from exprience with the RC8TE.

Anyone thought about trying the battery trays from the Serpent BE on the truggy conversion? Makes far more sense to have the 2 batteries evenly distributing there weight in the back.
