Default 2WD ECX Torment (1:10) to 4WD

Hi, I am brand new to this forum, so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section. I'm wanting to change my new ECX Torment from a 2WD to a 4WD, is there any easy way to do this? Sorry fir the short post, but as I said I'm new here.

Welcome to RCU.

No easy way to do it...I would say pretty much impossible...Two completely different transmissions/chassis.

Rusty's right. A 2wd machine has the motor and transmission mounted to the same mount, and the differential drives the rear wheels. In a 4wd car, the motor mount is usually in the middle of the chassis, and drives a center-mounted diff, which in turn drives diffs at each end of the car. ECX doesn't make those parts. I suppose if you stripped down the chassis, and were able to piecemeal a bunch of parts together, you might be able to do it, but in NO way would it be easy. Just finding the right length center drive shafts would be tough. Much less diff housings that would work. I started with a Duratrax Evader, and wanted to make it 4wd too, but it's chassis and front end made that idea impossible. I eventually found a good deal on a 4wd truggy roller (mostly assembled, minus electronics) for less than $200. Slapped my electronics in it and never looked back!
