Looks neat. I assume you mean that you took the Nikko body and replaced the motor, radio, and possibly other components.

What I actually did was build a Losi mini pro crawler and fit the scorpion body to it. I made a mount so that it could still have the blower sticking out the hood. Then used traxxas sledgehammer wheel adapters to fit 2 sets of rear wheels so that I could use the original scorpion wheels and tires.

Cool! Do you have any before-and-after pictures for comparison? Or mid-progress photos?
