Questions?? XRay T3 2011 and XRay T3 2012 - parts interchangeable? compatible?

hi all, i have been trying to figure out, if the XRay T3 2011 chassis is compatible with the XRay T3 2012 chassis? are the parts interchangeable/ compatible with each other? what are the differences? is there a list or does anyone know what works across both chassis and what doesn't work?
thank you all for your help in advance.

Virtually the entire car is the same, with the notable exception being the factory servo orientation. 2011 car had the servo mounted "north-south" (output shaft pointed towards one side of the car), 2012 car moved the servo to the "east-west" orientation (output shaft pointed towards the front). Otherwise, most drivetrain, chassis, suspension and shock parts are identical or could be retrofitted between models.

what are the best tools for "droop" and "ride height" setting for 1/10th scale on-road vehicles? what are "must have" tools to have and to own? generally speaking? any other tools you can recommend?
thanks all!

A nice set of Hex drivers, ball tip are a plus if you can afford them (Check EDS racing). Shock Shaft Pliers are very nice and make shocks very easy (Protek RC).
For ride height, and droop buy a nice stepped ride height gauge. There are many variations with different increments of .2mm to .5mm steps. Anything from 3mm-10mm should be good. For checking ride height, settle the car, and just slide under the chassis on a flat surface. For droop one method is to raise one side of the car until the tires are hardly touching the ground and then slide in the ride height gauge and measure it over ride height. Ex. cars ride height is at 5mm. You pick up that side of the chassis and slide the guage under now reading 9mm. So you have 4mm of droop. There are other droop gauges that put blocks under the car to be more precise, but those tools are much more expensive. I personally use the muchmore luxury ride height gauge.
