Default KYOSHO INFERNO CONVERSION??? OFF-ROAD 7.5 CONVERTED TO ON-ROAD INFERNO GT ???

Hi guys,

I was looking at buying an Off Road Inferno 7.5 buggy then converting it to an on-road Inferno as it works out cheaper than buying the GT.

Does anyone know of this being possible?

Is it possible to put on road inferno wheels and a 1/8 car body on to an off road and run it as is? Or am I better off just spending the extra and buying a GT?

Cheers

You're better off buying a true GT.
My lhs also sells them for only $350
The chassis is slightly different, Gt has a 2-speed (spendy), 2-speed clutch bell, different body mounts, shock towers, shocks and springs, big foam front bumper, and maybe a few other items.
Plus a new body (around $100 pre-paibted), since you wont have one on a buggy.

Plus all the time and effort to convert it!

Could you guys give me the links to those shops if possible?

The cheapest I can find them is $539.

$350 is a big saving!

Cheers

Thanks alot everyone for your help. I had a look on eBay Australia and I found one for AU$350.

It is in as new condition, RTR, starter etc. Engine rebuild kit included worth $100. Plus some new spares. Engine has also just had a new sleeve and glow plug changed.

Is this worth it? My LHS sells them for $530.

Cheers
