Default Is there a difference in ratio between the 8ight t and 8ight b center diffs??

I have bought a couple 8's one T and one B. The guy that had them changed the diffs from the 8T and put it in the Buggy. I dunno why maybe lower gearing easier to handle. I thought the buggy center was blown but its fine. If there any difference between the two diffs??

Only the external gear affects the ratio on the center, 48t most likely on both so no. The front and rear are different ratios from a B to T though. It is used to compensate for the difference in tire sizes. The T diffs will kill top end combined with a buggy and kill bottom end if you put the buggy diffs in the truggy. I looked a little deeper and the truggy has 4.30 F/R ratios, buggy has 3.46 F/R.

The 1.0 truggy had a 48T spur like the buggy, the 2.0 has a 50T and the buggy still has 48T. You can run both in either car no problem.
