Default XXX to Street Stock

Just purchased a XXX and want to convert it to a Street Stock. Can anyone tell me if I need to purchase the oval conversion kit from Speedys Racing Parts or if the Street Stock body will fit the XXX buggy with out changing anything.

There are a group of locals putting this class together and most are running b4 but a small few are running the losi xxx. Any incite is appreciated.

We're running on a hard packed track that's smooth but will get some dust buildup. We're running buggy tires with groovy on front and calibers on the rear.

I am not sure about why this matters in converting a XXX to a Street Stock. Thanks for the Insight and help. I just need to know what parts are needed for conversion.

I for one run a XXX that is a street stock here in Omaha,ne. It is bone stock buggy with my own body mount setup. We have 4 XXX's that are competitive. Only thing I have done is put customwork spacers on the rear and spring setup.

Hope this helps ya

Guys thanks for the help. We're going to be using the rpm bumpers and fabricating our own body mounts. Appreciate all the help.
