I'll stick with my 8ight this is something I'm doing besides racing the nitro series if it's possible.
I already have a 4pole 5700 kv sc motor so all I need is some bat packs.

So a 8ight with a 5700KV 4 pole on 2s? Good luck Really don't see it working at all. On batteries, yea the SMC 7200 is a great pack priced right if you can catch them in stock.

Dont think its really a sc motor but I run a tekin t8i 2700 on 2s and works really good. 17 pinion and stock spur and can run with the 4s powered buggies no problem

the smaller the track the less it is noticed. If you have traction 4S buggies will have more bottom end and on larger tracks the lack of power on the 2S will show. If you are running on a tight indoor track the less power may even be a benefit.

I run the T8i 1950KV motor on dual shorty packs (4S) at all the tracks and it has the smoothness on the bottom for small tracks but still lots of power for the larger tracks.

Run at rainmans and hot rod. Both pretty small tracks. Im sure the lack of power would be apparent on a large outdoor style track but for small or indoor its great!

The 1/8 light buggy class is small tight tracks and has restrictions, no need for alot of power..

That body is so much better looking than the dorsal finned stock one. I'm not a fan of any of the aftermarket bodies aside from the LFR. Hopefully it's available soon.

Its easily doable... I converted an RC8.2 into a 4x4SC that weighed 7lbs 8 oz RTR and ran it with a RevTech 4800kv 4 pole motor, Tekin RX8 and HVR 7000mah 2s packs.
The key to it was running 80% current limiter in the RX8 and a heatsink with a fan on the motor.
It wasnt a slouch either... heres an old video from SCRC in Cocoa FL.
