Default Difference between 8ight rtr or Roller?

Does anyone know the difference between the rtr 8igght t and the race roller or competition kit 8ight t. I got a used 8ight t today and the guy said it was rtr version but I dont think it is because it came with the roller manual and the shock towers look like the roller. If you need pictures to tell I can get them.

Also with the roto start should the more rounded edge be inseted into the engine and also it feels a little loose is there a way to lock it?

It's an rtr. Best bet is to change motor mount and backplate and use a starter box. Junk the roto-start.

I know he stated it but it came with the roller manual but w/e. Also I know I will be getting a starter box but need to use the roto start atleast unitl the race season starts. Any answers to that roto star question?

I don't think there is a way to lock it.

ok I was just wondering because when I put it in it still is wobbly and not firm in there and I wanted to make sure that I wasn't doing anything wrong.
