Lightbulb Converting a DBXL into a MTXL

Anyone try this, or done any research? I could pick up a DBXL fairly cheap and was toying with the idea of buying the parts needed to convert it into a MTXL. Just thought I'd ask to see if anyone has investigated this.

Hey moneybags, just bite the bullet and order a new one!

I'm not going to lie, for some reason, I want a MTXL. On the flip side, I think a 5IVE-T with MTXL tires would be a way more reliable platform if you just want something big to bash around.

You won't see me with one anytime soon though, since I'm building another 5IVE-B this month and then the Vekta kit next month. I'm going to have to take a break from new kits after that, lol...

That would be my other option.
