Default Will the RC8 center diff fit in an MBX6?

Hoping someone might have the answer to this, before I invest in an RC8 diff, just to find out that it doesn't fit.

I have an MBX-6 and an RC8T (waiting for the MBX-6T), and I would like my MBX-6 to have the butter-smooth drivetrain of the RC8T. I am wondering if the RC8 buggy's center diff will fit in my MBX-6 buggy?

Anyone know the answer to this? And, if it will fit, will the MBX-6 still have the same gear ratios?

Thanks in advance!

Why would the the RC8 diff be better? Makes no sense. My current MBX6's drivetrain spins forever like its on ceramics. Some locals thought it had ceramics, LOL!

Now if you used the RC8 brake rotors and MBX5R brake plates, I can assure you would like that brake setup. Has a lot more stopping power over the stock MBX6 brakes. I used spreader springs on the plates as to make sure there is no brake drag.
