The Racer has everything the EVO2 has and is better because of the C-Hub Suspension for Carpet racing. Why spend $500 for a EVO2 and C-Hub when you can get the $230 Racer. The only difference is the Tub Chassis and towers and Brace. The Composite C-Hubs have been tested since the beginning along side the Aluminum C-Hub here in Virginia and they are good....actually better then the Aluminum.. The guy that tested them has not broke one yet and all of us that had the aluminum have either Broken them or bent the hell out of them. Other thing you get is the Light Weight Mid Layshaft. Front Bumper Brace.
Only upgrade I see that may be needed for the car is the Solid Graphite Upper Deck. All of us around here that Have the EVO2 went back to the T1 Chassis and Upper Deck for Carpet Racing with Foam Tires. The EVO2 Chassis Flexes without the Solid Upper Deck.
You get the same Diff's, Bulkheads, Belts, Bearings, Shocks, Screws, as you do with the EVO2 but none of the Graphite stuff. I broke right off the bat the front Graphite Bumper Brace and the Rear Swiss Cheese Shock Tower.
As soon as the T1R is released I am dumping the TC3 for it. Everyone says this car is a sports car for the bashers... I guess they like throwing money down the drain. Like Mr Hudy Said at the Snowbirds...this will be the car to use on Carpet. Everything for the EVO2 can be put on the T1R so if you want all the Graphite Towers and so forth you can add them... and the best thing is that with that stuff added you still will not be higher then the price of a new EVO2
