Too much. I'd recommend selling your 4.0 and just buy a 5.0.

Many parts are similar and may look the same, but may not fit correctly. The front bulkheads and steering parts are completely different. I do not think those parts can be interchanged. Other items like spur gears, motor mounts, etc. may be interchangeable, but stuff like servo mounts, shock towers, and even mud guards are designed differently. I am basing my information mostly on visually looking at both buggies. I was told the turnbuckles on the 4.0 are too short to fit the 5.0, and I can see by looking that the ball cups are similar in some place but not in others.

I'm curious to know exactly what parts are interchangeable. too.
