$469.99 is a exellent price
The wing mount should fit, along with the lightened gears, outdrive, and steering posts. The swaybars, towers, and arms will not fit.

Are you talking about a suspension conversion kit, or the radio tray type conversion kit?

Pat,

The towers are the exact same as the 8.2 towers which are shorter than then World's Conversion towers.

It will fit, however you need to elongate the rear body mount. Or can the rear body mount and use velcro around the body.

So I have one small problem with mine. I am running Hartsons setup from the Nats here in Omaha, and he was running the standard rear B plate. When I tried to do this the arms were hitting the outdrives. Not sure what to do or how to fix this. Otherwise the little I have driven the car, it is so much better that the rc8be that it is not even funny!

Thinking I might have to jump on one of these and jump into 1/8th scale.

Use a dremel and sand the arm to clear the outdrive.

You will need to dremel the arm in a couple spots. The mold is being modified to fix the issue but for your arms it is a quick fix. Attached are two pics of a front arm. The silver markings denote where to dremel. You don't have to grind where the shock mounts in the arm, that is only if you want to run inside on the arm.

Chris,

Oh, ok...I was aware of a shorter front tower but are you saying there's a shorter rear tower as well? Just trying to confirm.

Thanks!

Pat

Yes, the 8.2 towers are shorter than the World's towers. They have the EXACT same geometry, they just don't use the longer shock ends that came with the conversion kit. The World's towers are sold anymore, so the only thing you can get from stores are the 8.2 towers.

Ok cool, thanks for the info Chris! Looks like I gotta get these shorter shock towers now to stay up dated.

Questions??

do you know why the end of the chassis before rear suspension is cut comparing to the rc8be ? Is it made for easier access of the dirt to engine and esc ? i also heard that it prevents chassis from touching the ground while cornering but i cant see scratches on the bottom of the chassis in the rc8be in that place, hmmm
