Default Convert 8IGHT-T 1.0 to 8IGHT-T 2.0

Can someone tell me what i need to do to convert my 1.0 to fit a 2.0 body on it, or is it worth it to convert it all the way to a 2.0?

From what I understand you will need like 5 things just to get the body to fit right, and look proper.

2.0 chassis
2.0 F/R shock towers.
2.0 rear center CVD
2.0 body posts
2.0 body

2.0 A-Arms, 2.0 rear shocks (the 1.0 rears are the 2.0 fronts), I think new turnbuckles and camber links, and I think that's almost it. There's probably a few pieces I'm leaving out.

The major difference I have read is the 2.0 has 1/2" longer A-Arms, that is why the shocks are longer. I just got the 1/2" hub extenders and run standard offset wheels. I didn't have any 1/2" offset wheels when I bought my 1.0 roller, oh and the 2.0 radio tray.

Actually you really don't need the front 2.0 shock tower. I am using the 1.0 rr front shock tower on my 2.0 and it works great, if not better than the 2.0 rtr version shock tower.
