I am converting my Shockwave to a Baja Beetle.
The Shockwave itself has been upgraded. It has an SH.18 engine, two speed transmission, a few aluminum upgrade parts, CVD front shafts, aluminum shocks and carbon fiber shock towers (courtesy of rufaster.com). If you ever have to replace your shock towers take a look at the carbon fiber ones. They are half the price of the upgraded aluminum and much stronger than the stock set.
I removed the rear tail assembly and I have some body mount post on order (stock Vortex SS post). The body is a Proline Baja Beetle (part # 3238-61).
