v2 Tower - YES!! The handeling difference is definitely noticeable with the outer holes
TFT Chassis - Not so much... Especially when you consider you can get the RTR chassis on eBay for $10-15 vs the TFT setting you back ~$100... I would spend the money you save on the inclined king pin spindles for the front which make a huge difference in turning ability...

you can get the tft chassis on ebay for 17.00, only for the 1.0 truggy, the 2.0 tft chassis is 104.00

tft chassis is made for a hard pack track (clay) if you run on a loose loomy track you will not benifit from it.

i guess its diffrent stokes for diffrent folks

but anyways i am thinking about doing what the guy on here did to his 1.0 t .

You dont need wheel hexes, mine went from the 1.0 onto the 2.0 as per normal, however you should flick those for the xray ones, they are better.
Also you dont need the radio tray, the 1.0 tray fits per normal, its just that the 2.0 tray is much more solid & has better support for the throttle servo.

the 1.0 t comes with narrow 0 offset hexs right ? so the 0 offset rims will make up the diffrence with the 1/2 hexs with the 2.0 t arms/axles ?
