looks fantastic. If I didn't already have a 1/8 electric buggy I'd buy a 2nd blitz just for a conversion like this!

I wonder if local race tracks will allow a buggy converted Blitz in a stock Spec short course class

i would hope not. then everyone would covert their sct's since it'll jump better and have better tires :(

@OP: awesome conversion!

At our local track - they allowed the Kyosho DB in the Short Course class.
http://www.stormerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...l?pn=KYO30856B

It left everybody behind.
Looks to be a Kyosho SC chassis converted to a desert buggy.

That was a few months ago.
I haven't seen it since. They may have changed the rules and stopped allowing the buggy conversions or box stock like the Kyosho....

It handles so much better, don't know how it jumps yet because of too much snow on ground. It will pull small wheelies now with 7.4, 4000 lipo and 16t pinion. I just need to figure out what shocks and what motor and esc. to run...any help would be greatly appreciated.

I like it, way too tempting to do this.

Sorry to bump an old thread, but this thread was the inspiration for my mod as well. I used the same body, wing and body mounts as this thread suggested. I did the wing mount a bit different though. Mine is swept farther back like a true 8th scale. I also used the front piece of the body and bolted it onto the front. Anyway, here she is!

Hey 1967Typhoon - What did you use to mount the wing? I like the way it looks!
