Default Has anyone tried to convert???

Does the TRF511X (1/10EP buggy) from tamiya share some parts with the TRF416X? How can a conversion from buggy to touring car be done? is it cheaper than to buy an entire 416x kit?

just curious as i see some similar parts between these two...

Theres no shared parts.

The parts you'd need from a TRF416X would be the diff, spool, steering rack, TRF shocks and 4 complete corners of the car (hub, caster blocks, driveshafts, wishbones, hingepins, steering rack).

The buggy is longer and wider, so you could be able to carry over the bulkheads and motor mount/layshaft, but you'd need custom bottom deck, top decks, belts, suspension mounts and shock towers making up.

By the time you've found somewhere that could do that though, you could have bought 2 TRF416X kits.
