No doubt you'll discover the same things Nop did in the early 90's.
A 4-wheel configuration increases traction (good!) but also increases drag (bad).
Turns out the drag increase is greater than the additional traction.

But the buggy will look unlike anything else and that fact alone might intimidate other racers.

My suggesion is to design a conversion that can be undone.

Safen Up! Buggy On!
