Convert the Ve8 into cash, then convert the cash into an SCT...

Otherwise I'd say a change of wheels, tyres and shells would go along way, seems like buggies and SCTs are very similar in dimensions generally but have a look at what is on the market currently for comparison purposes..

Check the dimensions of the VE8 wheelbase against the SC bodies out there. Body posts can be added to the front and rear shock towers to mount it. If the wing mount can be adjusted properly, you could use it for the rear body mount instead.

Yeah, that is one cool looking buggy. The new axial exa terra is a very similar buggy in 1/10- scale, and comes as a kit with CD. I would rather have the axial with a castle short course motor/MMPro on 3s I have enough 1/8 buggy's, and would like to pick my own electronics. Perfect!
