Tekno MT48.3 - Truggy chassis converted Monster Truck

I just made an account here because I thought this might be something you guys think is cool.

I am a huge fan of Tekno and bashing so naturally I purchased the MT410, however I've always liked the handling and feel of a longer wheelbase. I didn't want to get rid of the Monster Truck body because I really like being able to self-right my RC and I love the look of a Monster Truck body. Surprisingly Tekno actually has information on what part numbers you need to do this conversion including what bodies fit, I'll be including the picture I used to get the part numbers.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to do this, but I think I may be one of the first to do this exact combination of parts. The only things my build is missing right now is a Max6 Combo and the new M2C V2 center brace. I'm going to be attempting to fit a Max6 system into this truck by relocating the ESC to the top of the center diff.

That will be unique, I like Nitro a lot but I'll probably never own one.

I do a quick changeover from regular race truggy mode to monster truck mode with my ET48.3 depending if im going to the track or just out having fun. Being that i started with the ET i didnt really have to change much. I just move the two rear body mounts to the front of the front shock tower, mount one of the front body mounts to the front middle of the rear shock tower as there is a factory hole there already. I did a Ford Raptor body up that is designed for the bigger 1/8th scale monster trucks, and even though the wheelsbase is still a little short, the body fits nearly perfect. I then move the shocks all the way in on the arms and install the stiffest springs i have and jack the ride height up and im ready to go. I have a few different sets of the proline 40 series tires and wheels with the 1/2" offset which are perfect as i already have the +2mm hubs. I can either remove the wing for a more realistic look or leave it on to help downforce as i trimmed the body to fit around the mount but dont have any pics of that setup yet

Wow, you basically have a quick-change system. That body is actually the one I was using before I converted my RC Truck.

I'd love to see the build as well.
I just got the nb48.3 and about 75% of the sct parts and got started on it last night. Forgot bearings and spindle carriers so i prdered those thos a.m. so far everything fits like a glove. I am going to use the buggies rear hub bc its beefier and will run 17mm hex. I will definitely keep you guys posted and load some pics soon
