its more than bigger shocks, you get new towers, front arms, I think the chassis is different, and something in the rear too, tire rod or arm.

definetly more than shocks.
The manual is available on nitrohouse, and after comparing it really is a lot

there are small changes like the radio tray mounting items have different servo wire holders, then front uprights are different, shocks, towers, arms upper and lower, mud guards and chassis. Also the servo saver, ackerman plate, ti rods on front and the ball ends. The diffs did stay the same as the buggy, so no helical cut ones, but I also think one of the rear or front aluminum braces changed.

I was considering an "upgrade" since I just purchased a new prospec, but it would be more cost effective to get the kit.

Ya I was just joking guys. I quick read the other day some of the differences. I won't get one just b/c I can't afford to, plus the current one I have will work fine for me still as I run more gas truck than buggy.
