Default coming soon, a tutorial of sorts :)

I've seen pictures of it done, and am going to go ahead with it mylself, and that's converting a losi ten Scte to nitro. The parts needed are extremely cheap and I already have a beast of an engine to throw in. So I guess what I'm looking for is what sort of interest is there for such a tutorial?

Fuel tank - $7
Complete radio tray w all hardware - $5
Engine mounts and exhaust mount - $7
Center diff w brakes, splash guard, and linkage - $35

I already have the engine and servos but that's the expensive part I suppose.

I did it a lttle while back. Take a Losi 810 chassis and put the front and back suspension from the SCTE(with bumpers. You can also use the 810 gas tank, motor mounts, and center diff set-up. I drilled an additional hole to make the chassis accept the Losi 2.0B gas tank. You will have to use the 810 drive shafts. The side rails should directly bolt on. I tried it and had fun with it. Good luck with your build. You will get a kick out of it.

The 810, Ten-T and the SCTE are all built on the same platform.

Only forseeable problem, there are no .21 mounts available for the 810 or ten-t so unless I can get custom ones, ill be getting an OS .18tz for it

So far all parts are direct bolt on, all except .21 engine, will have to custom make an engine mount for it.
