Conversion
 
I am not sure about a conversoion yet. It is very possible! When all the parts come available we could look into the cost.

Cain 12-02-2011 10:06 AM

I also got a potential part # for the possible conversion kit to turn the buggy into the W5. Part# 141200X0 .

Not sure on what all it includes, from what I was advised it could include all the usual stuff as well as the body and tires. Again, not definite on this.

I would be very curious to see how this goes against the 5ive-T . I know its smaller dimensions for sure but it does have that MCD Race heritage.

I will be honest.... I think it looks NOTHING like a SC truck... its pretty ugly as far as realism goes...

I've noticed that every "European" short course R/C I've seen looks nothing like a short course truck LOL. It's ok though, they build some very nice rigs.

highwaystar 12-02-2011 06:32 PM

I am liking this truck more and more everytime I see new pics of it. This could very well be my new rig for '12!

Cain 12-05-2011 07:19 AM

Read up on the MCD forums that it sounds like the conversion kits will be shipping at the same time as the truck.

highwaystar 12-05-2011 11:59 AM

I am pretty excited about this truck. I went and checked out the other new truck, the MCD is getting my money.:thumb:

I did get a part # for the W5 conversion Kit. We should be getting them in the next 2 weeks. :thumb:

Cain 12-05-2011 12:35 PM

Nice! Here is a pic of the conversion kit from the MCD Forums:

Any estimate on price for the conversion kit?

highwaystar 12-05-2011 12:41 PM

That body (to me), looks like a newer more modern version of the old Baja 1000. Very nice.:D

artmalibu 12-05-2011 01:47 PM

Looks like it will be 10 pounds lighter than the new losi!!! If they race in the same class the losi guys might be in trouble.

Turkey ain't in Europe! More like the middle east!

And if you have ever been to Turkey as I have. Nothing is real. It's all fake!

Cain 12-06-2011 05:11 PM

got some more info. For converting the buggy you will also need the longer rear shocks for the front as the tower is taller. the W5 will also come with the new CVDs as well, but I was told by the rep that the ones with the buggy now will be fine.

Are all their bodies sold with a white overspray film, I looked at the Cheetah body to fit on one of my 5B's to do a truggy or more than likely I was going to remove the roof so it was like a class 1 buggy, but price and the masking film put me off, I run a MCD monster truck converted to an SC, it is great ,but I must admit the earlier ones as mine is are fragile, not had much to do with the V4 but it looks like it should be more robust than my MCD EVO 3.
I was rearly tempted to get the W5 but the price has jumped from the estimated 599.99 to nearer 800, a bit dear as I was going to put a BZM 28.5cc in it and race it, as it will be lighter than the Losi, in fact the only thing heavier than my Losi is my lardy 5T at 41lb ouch and that has been slimmed down:lol:, I will have to give it some thought to sell my EVO 3 and FG's to buy the MCD or work on getting the LOSI lighter and running as is, or just throw the BZM in, as the power will more than compensate the extra weight.
Well I have until the new year to decide and have still got to get my head round the Venom VMX450 steering and setting the ESC up properly I have a hearing problem and listening for the beeps is not working for me, so a program card is my next purchase for the VMX.
The weather is very wet and gale force winds so no running in the Losi for the moment, so a bit disappointed, hey ho, plenty to do,garden to sort out before the freeze, a few DIY jobs to do aswell, I could start the winter rebuild's a little earlier than I usually do, I prefer it to freeze rather than rain as I can run the vehicles without worrying about too much water ingress.:twisted:

Cain 12-07-2011 12:48 PM

I guess I don't follow, can you elaborate on why the white film is bad? Is it because its hard to see your inner masking designs or something like that?

arthurdaley 12-08-2011 05:25 AM

Spot the deliberate mistake

Yes that is exactly why, sorry just reread my post and I had missed the part as to why they are a pain, fingers typing faster than the brain can keep up:lol:
