Just get the buggy tires and you should be good. I think you can convert it to a single speed but why would u wanna do that?!?!

The kits are about 70 element... Well do you want to use it as a buggy or what? Do you just want a low ride and small wheels? What you want? If you want to change it into a full blown buggy I recommend getting the Kit at [link=http://www.rcmodels.com/rc-cen-ffs025.html]RCMODELS[/link] it is about 70$ and supposedly if in a buggy form, it preforms alot better... About the tranny, I belive the kit gives you the instructions on what to do to make it a 1 speed and it comes with all the tools and parts I belive...

Why you want a buggy? MT form is alot more fun!!!!

Isn't it easier to adjust the gear change so that it only runs on first gear? then you automatically have a one geared car...[:-]
Anyway... i have a CEN buggy ST2 and want to make into a monster... but i just can't see what the difference is between the two, besides the tires....

Um.....I want to convert it to a buggy like I stated. Thanks for the link.

Because I have a mammoth for MT, RC10GT for stadium , and this would be the easiest to make into a buggy. Then I can race all three classes.

The buggy has different wheels and tires, shorter A arms and shorter drive shafts. It also uses a different clutch bell to increase speed.
