Default Can you convert a T4 to a B4?

I have a t4 that I have been racing but we only have one class for trucks and buggies.
I was wondering what parts i need to convert it
THanks

You just need part number 9035, or 9034. Seriously it will be alot cheaper/easier to just buy the whole kit. There are very few parts shared between the 2 chassis.

Everything is different except the tranny. Believe it or not, but the t4 chassis is longer.

I already have a t4, but all the buggies go so much faster, so (Im not that fast yet) im slower than my friends who run b4's, and I think its easier if I can convert.

IT WHOULD BE EASIER TO BUY A B4 THEN TO CONVERT YOU COULD MOST LIKLY FIND A GOOD USED ONE FOR 100-150 BUCKS OR YOU COULD PAY FOR ABOUT $200'S WORTH THE PARTS TO CONVERT.

IF YOU CONVERT YOU ARE PAYING RETAIL FOR PARTS,SO IT WOULD COST MORE THAN A NEW KIT

Just buy a buggy kit, as mentioned before there are very few parts shared (just the tranny and front bulkheads are the same) between the T4 and B4...

THanks, Ranamar
It doesn't seem like it would be more expensive, but in natural fact, it will. Buying each part separate really bumps up the price. As goes with most things, when you buy in bulk you save and that's what you should do. Buy a whole damn kit! Used FT B4's go for around $120-150.
