Has anyone done the conversion to convert it to a true 1/8 scale short course truck?

If not would I only need to buy the typhon arms etc?

What are you trying to convert it to exactly? A 1/8 monster truck, truggy, buggy? Converting it to a Typhon would probably be the easiest since the Senton shares chassis and axles and a bunch of other stuff with the Typhon.

Oh yeah that will probably be more difficult. That may require some custom fabrication as it would maybe require a larger chassis but I don't know for sure. I would be interested in converting mine too if you get something figured out.

Oh thats right they are actually longer. Yeah add on another 6 inches and we should be okay then add the typhon or talion arms. Im from australia but ill ask my mate that works as a panel beater.

I thought the Traxxas UDR was more of a 1/7 scale. The AE Nomad and the Habao 8SC are more 'proper' 1/8 SC, and they are running truggy chassis.

You might be on to something about the 6 inches . . .

Left to right: Zennon, Kraton-Typhon-XO-1 Hybrid, Senton
The car in the middle has a Kraton chassis, Typhon arms/axles, & XO-1 parts. The Zennon is 2 SWB chassis cut & bolted together, Kraton arms/axles, 2 center diffs (one is locked), & 3 center dogbones. It has the wheelbase of a Super Baja Rey. But it's a bit wider so it will be hard to fit the body on it, but I'll make it work anyway :D

The XO-1 body easily fits on the hybrid with minimal trimming while I can fit a ridiculous amount of 1/6 bodies on the Zennon. I have the Yeti XL body on it now.

The front spur is a locked spool. Right now, it's an 8S 70mph nutball. Every time I run the thing I can't help but think it's destroying itself :D

Actually, the very 1st version was outfitted with 2 blx185 systems.

Both center diffs were locked & separated. The front motor powered the front wheels & ditto for the rear. It had plenty power on 2x4S & 2x6S but the single 8S system blows all of that out of the water & then some. Plus the thing was a handful to control w/o a functional center diff.
