Default Hpi Blitz 1/8 scale buggy!!

Hey guys, ive seen quite a few people doing slash buggy conversions and 4x4 slash conversions but (i dont have a slash) i have a blitz so im making a 1/8 buggy blitz.


Here is what it looks like so far.

Ive taken off the front and rear bumpers and front and rear body mounts.

Added the rear bumper plate to the front and angled it up with some zip ties.



All i need now is a body (what do you reccomend??)

a way of mounting that particular body, (i think i have a way)

Some 1/8 buggy wheels and tyres

Some 17mm wheel adaptors.

And a wing, probably an ofna wing

believe it or not most 1/10th Stadium trucks, and SCT's are on par size wise with the 1/8th buggies.
My MT2 is like a quarter inch smaller than my jammin X1 buggy.

The size,

A sct is prety close to (+- a lil bit) a buggy in width and length.

Also the wheels are the same diameter.



Have you never seen a backslash conversion?? they are basically the same as a 1/8 buggy when finished
