Depending on how bad you want it, you might ask in the nitro onroad forum in the 8th scale GT thread. A lot of guys have modded buggies into GT cars with 2-speeds. Could be some possibility, but it'd probably entail some experimenting, fabricating, etc..

True. The WR8 has an odd sized center diff in it. I'm sure you could possible use parts from the RS4 MT2 to convert it to a 2 speed though. You would need to cut down the center diff/gear shaft and use the MT2 style drive cups.

I'd try it out but I have the WR8 flux. I used to have a Super Nitro Rally so I probably have all the parts to do it...
