Default Tamiya F103 VS C-chassis differences

So in looking at pictures of these they look very similar. What makes them different? It looks like maybe the center tub section but what else. Just getting into some of these vintage chassis from the 90's and learning as I go.

Just about everything is different, the Group C chassis is based on the older F102 chassis.

Different front end, Group C front end is in two separate units while F103 is one piece. Chassis, obviously. F103 rear end offsets the pod more for balance, so different T-piece, rear pod front and rear parts, and diff parts. The only parts carried over to the F103 are steering arms, rear axle shaft, diff gear and left side hub.
