Default RC8T RTR upgrade to CE or FT

Okay this may be a stupid question and I am not missing anything, but I have not been able to really find anything on this so here goes.

I just bought an RC8T RTR and plan on upgrading it to be more like the CE or FT versions. Outside of what's listed below, what other parts are different???

Front Shock Tower
Rear Shock Tower
Steering Top Plate
Big Bore Shocks Front
Big Bore Shocks Rear
Aluminum Chassis Braces

I've seen the other kits come with a different body and wing which is irrelevant to me.

Most run the RTR chassis braces instead of aluminum, the CE come with those.
Narrow wheel hubs.
Steering mod, though alot have gone back to the regular akerman plate.

thanks for the info guys.

So if i replace all this, It should be pretty much all set.

Front Shock Tower
Rear Shock Tower
Steering Top Plate
Big Bore Shocks Front
Big Bore Shocks Rear
Aluminum Chassis Braces (optional)
Aluminum A, B, C, D Plates
Narrow wheel hubs

Any opinions on the King Headz in comparison to the Associated parts?

Thats what i do always, i enjoy the excitement of upgrades and it keeps me hands on!

Good luck, and consider the CF shock towers that put the shocks more upright.
