I have been thinking of converting the 5T into a buggy. I want keep the chassis standard so can swap over at any time between
SCT and buggy. My question to you guys is this possible dontknow , can I use my original  shock towers, the losi pipe and what sort of body shell would be best to use. Any help would be much appreciated.
Cheers

Thanks Shane thumbsup. I have emailed Callan this morning just waiting on prices. So far that seems to be the only option as I cant afford the shorten chassis and want to be able to change back to sct anytime.

Made a start on 5t/ 5b. Mounted up the wing using a losi 8t truggy wing mount and fitted a baja 5b wing. Not to sure of the wing size ( may be needed to be wider) but will stick with it for the moment

After doing some research going to go with the elcon body. Got some measurements and think the losi pipe is going to be pretty close to the body. I am thinking of shortening the header pipe by cutting a 25mm section out but not to sure what affect this will have. Can anyone help me on this
Cheers Oxy

My body shell turned up from King RC !woohoo!. Made a bit of a start fitting body to the chassis. Ended up using some body mount post and bracket from a losi sct as the rear mounts. Just need to make up a mount for the front then some side dirt shields then come up with a way to fit my pipe

Came up with a solution for my pipe after a couple of *gulp). Ground off the weld around the flange and turned it 180 degrees and angled the pipe down so I now have clearance for the body shell and have kept the original length of the header pipe.
