Talking BG2 Mini-T buggy conversion

Yes, it is possible to convert the Mini-T to a buggy. Here are a few pics of my Mini-T converted to a buggy using the Team Bluegroove conversion. It adds almost an inch to the length of the Mini-T, you can an also use a stick pack in it.

Here it is next to a normal Mini-T.


Next to my Nitro Mini Inferno 09

That's really cool, but where do you get the conversion kit? Bluegroove seems to be dead, and I only see body replacements on eBay.

I just happened to come across it when I was looking for Mini-T parts on Ebay.

Looks like Bluegroove started selling them again on eBay. Just found a kit and did Buy it Now. That conversion kit for the Micro-T looks quite tempting too.

Here are some more pics, showing how I stiffened the chassis.

That's pretty impressive man. Nice work.
How does it go? Still stupidly fast with the Mamba system or does the extra weight slow it down?

Cheers

Thanks for the compliment.

It is still just fast as it was in stock form. The extended does not let it do back flips at full throttle.

The chassis, battery strap (which I didn't use), undertray, wing & body was $70.00.

I bought several more things to finish it and strengthen the chassis.
