Default 8ight-T 2.0 RTR vs Race Roller

Hey guys I'm gonna be buying a 8ight-T 2.0 RTR version and sell off everything to make it a roller then put my good stuff it in it. I was wondering what do I need to buy to make it a race roller. If you guys are wondering why don't I buy a Race Roller in the first place its a long story that I don't think anyone really cares about.

So if you guys could list all the differences that would be awsome!

Thanks
-Tony

hubs are the same, nuts i think are just coated differently, no performance advantages at all, more preference i think

Hubs and nuts on the RTR are red annodized. On the roller they are hard annodized. Not really any difference in the way they work. The hard annodized ones may, and I say may, wear a bit less. That is a big maybe.

Yes, hex hubs. As in wheel hubs. Not the rear upright hubs.
