Default difference between xray xb8 tq & ec

I am looking at buying an xray tq to replace my gs storm pro and have some questions. What are the differences between the tq model and the ec model? I read there are a bunch of shock differences but i plan on transfering my integy shocks from the storm anyway. Other than that is is possible to update a tq to an EC?

i am assuming this is all the stuff i would need which would be a really short list due to all the shock parts:

The EC has 1mm bigger shocks, more front droop, revised front arms( more steering, but this has to be done to all of the xray cars) , and the engine is placed more towards the rear.


I run the TQ ( did run , they're both for sale) and find it handles very well. I found the changes to the ec weren't significant enough to spend the $250+ for the conversion.

ok sounds good i was thinking if i can pick everything up minus the shocks for under $75 i am looking at a tq roller for $100 so i guess it would make sense just to convert
