Up grading a Losi 8ight to 2.0 spec

I was on the Losi site and could not find any info about a conversion kit or upgrade kit to 2.0 specs ,The only things I can think of would be a longer chassis and center drive shaft plus a new body ?

Might be cheaper to sell your old one if you can and buy a 2.0 in the long run.

What I would do is upgrade to the 2.0 over time. As you break or wear out parts just upgrade with the new 2.0 parts. The 2.0 is a great car but so is the 1.0 and each time you upgrade a new part your car will be just that little bit better.

Just print out the parts list of both buggies and note the different part numbers. I was thinking of doing the same, but in the end, I just decided to buy the 2.0. As Dave said, bits & pieces here & there don't hurt the wallet quite so bad.
