would you be able to provide me with more details of this hybrid conversion you did. i have a D8T in route that would be fun converting to a D817T as much as i can. Thanks in advance

I am running a D8T and the original 133mm rear cva dogbones pop out from the outdrives for every big jump with the droop issue.

Can the

E817T 135mm Rear CVA Dogbone

fit the D8T without changing the arms?

Taller front body mounts are usually all that is needed.... back in the day I had used some losi truggy mounts to fit different bodies, a friend of mine is currently using associated front mounts to fit different body on his D817TE.
