Default Possible to convert XXX-BK2 to XXX-CR?

I have a XXX-BK2 that i bought last winter and have maybe 6 race days on. I've heard the CR is much faster around my local track. From looking at the pics on-line the differences i see are:
front a-arms
front castor blocks/steering knuckles?
front shock tower
steering rack
rear a-arms
rear uprights
rear shock tower
gearbox or just the housing/motor plate?
different material chassis/bulkheads

what changes make the CR handle better? i'd rather convert only the things that will help rather than sink a bunch of money into converting everything, at which point it would probably be cheaper to sell the BK2 for cheap and get a CR.

I think most people say the rear hubs, shock towers and steering for sure.

the best thing for you to do is get the correct rear end parts, cr rear pivot, cr rear arms, cr rear hubs, cr rear tower, and xxx transmission. Don't forget the cr steering rack.

The cost of these parts are pretty expensive, especiallt the tranny. Your best bet really is to get the new car. You can half ass convert your bk2, but you will only get 85 to 90% of the cr.
