Default 8th buggy , Corr racer conversion

I saw, in the new rc driver mag. that someone converted there 8th buggy into a Corr short track racer. It looked awsome. SOOO I'm doin it.
I just won 14mm hub adaptors that fit traxxas wheels from ebay. And the wife is getting me the Proline Hardcore Slash (clear) body with Traxxas Slayer rims & tires. for xmass.
Anyones thoughts??

Here's a thought, the slash wheels and body are 1/10 scale based. You plan on using these to convert a 1/8 buggy. I just don't see it working.

I know the body will fit. A picture of it is in the RC Driver mag. As for the rims they are the Nitro Slayer not the Slash. The 14mm adaptors should work out ok. I was a little worried
about the 2.2 rim size but the inner rim size is like realy wide compared to the outer.

Another suggestion would be to use the new Associated SC8 wheels/tires. They have a 17mm hub and look just like the real deal.

I'm thinking of simply putting a Slash body on our Jammin X1CR.

Hey futureboy1969 , thats my CORR truck conversion It was VERY easy too do . Have you seen the revised rear bumper I installed from the Slayer ? It looks alot better than the Losi rear bumper IMO .

It looks cool, and I get the point of it all, BUT. To me it looks like your just as well running without a body with all that open air space under the hood area.It just seems like it is very open for things to go wrong in there.

KRO,

I think your conversion looks awesome. Best of all, its not expensive to change it over. I have a LX-1 that I've been trying to sell, but with this crappy economy it hasnt sold because I wont just give it away. So now instead...I'm keeping it and converting it to a CORR. Thanks for the awesome idea.

I,m converting a Jammin CRT with the BCE small gear conversion to an SC8 sized CORR truck. The SC8 body is a perfect fit and even the body mounts are on the same line as the CRT's. I just have to fit a set of body mounts from the DM-1 on road car. I will be using the Jammin buggy arms and drive shafts and softly sprung super big bores. I will also use these wheels
http://www.ofna.com/tires-monster.html#pirate Part #86069 with buggy tires. I will leave out the roll bar to save weight. I hope the SC8 guys will let me run with them.

Sounds sweet ! I wish the SC8 body would fit on my Ravager but the wheelbase is too short (post pics !) .

I dont see why you wouldnt be able too race SC8's , they are buggy based cars also so you have no advantage over them .

The Slayer guys though might be another story !

Yes KRO, I agree I will have no advantage over the SC8's but I should be a lot lighter with carbon tray and shock towers and no roll cage. I dont want to drop $40 bucks for a roll cage from AE but the racers may demand that I carry the extra weight. I have some parts on order but as soon as I get it up and together, I will post some pictures.

Hey KRO, is the ravanger 9.5 based or Ultra based. I have a few crt chassis that may work for you to extend it out.
