Default losi 8ight 1.0 up grade to 2.0

I am looking to up grade my first gen 8ight to the 2.0 do i need to change the arms, diff housing, center diff mount? All of that stuff looks the same.

I know ill need the chassis, rear center shaft rear hubs front carriers stuff like that or should i just buy the 2.0 car?

Chassis
Towers
Brake Linkage
Diffs have a new O ring
Steering Linkages are different
Turnbuckles are different [ I believe ]
Hubs
I'd get the front and center smart diff [they'd help a lot with the driving]
Body
the adjustable hinge pin brace would be a good thing to have

it'll at least be $300-$400 in renovations

I'll priced things for the 8ight-t to 8ight-t 2.0

Just buy a lightly used roller off here and save yourself the headaches of finding all of the parts. Keep the 1.0 roller for a practice or a muddy track car.

Skip the smart diffs, they're not a necessity.
