Default HB RGT8 ---> D815/D817 Conversion Help

So I have this brand new RGT8 kit sitting at home new untouched and realized I may want to convert the kit to a HB buggy D817 or Truggy while doing the build. I know the driveline is suppose to be the same.

Anyone have experience with Hotbodies D815/D817 or the RGT8? Need a parts list of what I do and dont meed to buy suspensiom wise.

Thanks in advance.

You will need a new chassis, shocks, shock towers, center diff, body posts, center drive shafts. Truggy would require alot more. I am sure I missed something else but converting to buggy woudn't be too much work.
