Default Converting an 8ight first edition buggy to an 8ight 2.0

I hope I'm not beating a dead horse here, but, I've got a brand new in the box Losi 8ight, first edition. Never been built and everything is still in their unopened bags.

What parts would I need to convert it to a 2.0 version? Is there a complete parts listing somewhere that I could access? Is it just a chassis swap or are there more parts needed?

I really can't comment on the extent of parts it would require to convert the buggy to a true 2.0 but I imagine it would be costly and probably not worth the money. If you want a 2.0 it's probably best to just buy one as a whole.

I say that because If I were you, I would preserve the 1.0 kit as is. Losi is not making anymore of them and you have one brand new, still in the bags. It was a ground breaking car, and I believe it has the potential to become somewhat of a collectors item. Especially since you have the kit, so it's probably from one of the very first batches of cars. Of course time will tell if it has any value as a collectible.

Just my opinion
