Default Need Help With XRAY T3/T4 Identification

Is there an easy way to tell the XRAY t3 from the XRAY t4? I purchased two cars from a gentleman and he wasn't sure if there an early T4 model or if it's the T3 model. I got a good deal on them either way, just need a better idea of what I need to order spares for.

Thanks

Pics? Many parts on both cars are interchangable. Big tell-tale sign is the swaybar design changed to have the besring carriers on the bulkhead on thw newer t4.

Sorry but if you mean bearing sway bar carriers these were only on the T4'15 onwards. Earlier T4's didn't have them.

I would look at the motor mount/layshaft holders for the difference between the T3 and T4

Thank you for the help everyone! It's greatly appreciated! Last time I raced RC is when the Xray T1 had just released!
