    Transform 4x4 VXL Stampede to Grave Digger 4x4 XL

    Sooooo my question is that I want to turn a new 4x4 VXL Stampede into a 4x4 Stampede Grave Digger. I have the Stampede 4x4 VXL and the 2WD Grave Digger is on the way. My plan is to swap over the tires and wheels, the body and all the green parts to the Stampede 4x4..............is there anything that can't be swapped between these two chassis??

    Then I plan to sell the 2WD platform complete as RTR as new.

    Any tips or suggestions or problems that I am going to run into?

    Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

    There isn't much that can be swapped between the two platforms. Just from the top of my head, you can use the front bumper, the springs, the body mounts, and the tires. You will have to check what type of offset the 2wd's front and rear tires are at. I could be wrong, but I believe the stampede 4x4 uses front offset stampede tires. You will also have to custom make a body post mount. I used an aluminum plate to secure the rear body mount structure to the shock tower, and you should be able to mount the front 2wd mounts to the front of the 4x4 tower. Here are some pictures:
