Default Monster Truck Conversion

Greetings all-
Was wondering if anyone is aware of a conversion kit that would transform the 1/8th scale Losi Buggy into a Monster Truck? Thanks for any help you can provide.

a truggy conversion would be pretty simple, stretch out the width and length. A mt conversion though? that sounds not practical in more ways than one. Why not just buy one of the losi 1/8 mt that they already have?

If you want it to be monster truck size buy a monster truck. If you just want it to look monster get some offset 3.2" wheels and maybe some hub extenders (depending wheels and how wide you want it).

Default Monster Truck Conversion

Thanks everyone for their replies. I have a 8 buggy sitting on the shelf so I thought it might make a nice Monster Truck for the grandson to bash in the backyard. He is definately into the Gravedigger so I thought perhaps with the popularity of these trucks, someone might have made a conversion kit with wheels, tires, and body mount. Probably dont want to make this into a big project so Ill just look at the Traxxas models. Thanks again to everybody for their advice.
