Default E-Truggy

I was wondering if anyone is running a 4WD electric truggy? I see that a few companies make some conversions from different models but no one actually produces one. Do any companies make a truggy thats just a roller? I'm looking for a full truggy body, suspention, frame, everything but the gas motor and fuel tank. I'd like to make a brushless truggy to have some fun with, any suggestions?

Thanks,
Nick

No one has any suggestions? No one knows of any truggy / stadium truck produced thats 4WD, not RTR, no motor?
I figured one of our experts would know something.

Thanks,
Nick

Thanks for the reply Scouser. I was actually just browsing through their site a few weks ago. Does anyone have one of these Buggys or Truggys? Here is the link to the Fine Design products.

They look like very well built trucks, I might look at getting one.

Thanks,
Nick

I've said this before and I'll say it again, Chris Fine (Owner of Fine Design) is a con artist. If any of the electronics he supplies go bad, or fry, you're pretty much screwed. He often won't have it reapaired and say it's your fault, and he has a bad reputation on the internet. I would stay away from him until he changes for the better. Besides, it's not that hard to make an electric truggy. All you need is a plastic spur, and a way to mount the motors. (E-Maxx motorplate or custom one works great.)

El Jarretto thanks for the reply, I've also been told that same thing from someone else.

Visit rcmonster.com and check thier forum. They have quite a few buggy and truggy conversions to check out. Plus the people on that forum love to share information.

99% of comments on fine design are negative. those conversions look pretty good, but be warned! rc-monster.com is the place. i just bought a jammin' x1 crt rtr and gutted all the nitro stuff. this baby is going to surprise everyone at my track. you should see their faces when i run my revo. the monster can answer all of your questions and help you get custom parts made.

...I will be converting my Tamiya Dark Impact to a truggy...I suppose it all depends on how true to 'truggy' you want to be...
