Default Losi 8IGHT Kit vs Roller

Stupid question....

Is there any difference in the parts between the two products

a.) Team Losi 8ight 1/8 4WD Competition Buggy Kit
b.) Team Losi 8ight 1/8 4WD Competition Buggy Race Roller

I prefer to put it together from the kit, but wasn't sure if there was any parts difference between the two.

thanks.

What eddie said, I bought the roller because it was cheaper.

at some places it is, most places it's not...

A-Main has the kit for about $60 cheaper right now. Carolinas sells the roller for about $10 cheaper than the kit...

The chassis anodizing on the RR is different from the pro kit.

Is there a kit that comes with the TFT chassis or is that something that you have to upgrade.

You have to upgrade the TFT chassis. Or do it yourself.
