Hi! It looks like the guys who have successfully converted a Buggy into a GT have changed the following:

- Added 2 speed
- Added GT Shock Towers and Shocks
- Added GT Bumper-Plate and Bumper
- Added 150cc Fuel tank (from a Truggy)

There's a guy who converted an Sworkz buggy, looks really good so check it out:

Here's a guy who did a Losi Conversion. It's electric so you won't have any info for 2 speed. But at least you'll have some other info:

Not sure if they fit the 4.0 but here are some carbon fiber towers.
