Default Backdraft 8E -> Aftershock 8E

Hi,

I am ordering parts to swap my Backdraft 8E to a Aftershock 8E.

Other than thoses parts, do you think I need something else?

BS904-003Bumpers (10.50$)
BS904-004Bumper brace (2x) (3.50$ x 2)
BS904-005Bumper chassis Front (3.50$)
BS904-006
Bumper chassis Rear (3.50$)
BS801-008 Body posts(3.50$)

I think I'm gonna keep the Buggy wheels to have a different look and buy a SC clear body from Proline.

What do you guys think? Do I need something else?

make sure what ever body you buy is either a "one size fits most" or a body designed to fit the blitz. the wheelbase on the redcats is a little longer than just about everything else, and it is a bit wider than any other 1/10 sct so when looking at bodies maybe look into the ones that have bigger fenders. I had a jconcepts raptor "one size fits most" body one my aftershock and it fit pretty good, i only had to trim a little away from the front fenders and the tires didnt run too bad on the rear fend wells either. just a lil info to help ya out.

Thanks! I also heard that the Slash body also fits very well.
