not sure, was hoping you could tell us so we know what to expect.

did you buy your parts individually or did you buy the upgrade kit?

There are so many upgrades on the TE versus the original 966 you would be better off buying a 966 TE and making the old kit spare parts.

But if you are insisting:

New transmission
new rear bulk heads
new rear transmission bulk heads
New front end
new bumper
Rear flex joints
new carbon deck
new fuel tank
suspension shock extensions

If I have forgotten anything, which is possible as the list keeps going on, please add on to it.

IF you are going to run the 966 I would suggest you get the new front end bumper and shock extentions. these will change the character most.

If you are running on a high bite track consider the rear bulk heads and the flex connections. Our track here is low to medium traction so I do not use the flex connectors.

the new top deck includes a new fex point. that might be an option again to consider.

The 966 TE drives and feels much different than the 966 or even the EVO as a whole package.

Good luck... have Fun...

Ask you distributors they should be getting the replacement parts in stock now to cover the bearing. We had the same issue with the SL6 which was missing a pin.

Again your distributors are here to help you guys...
