Default MRC/Academy SBV2

Is there a difference between the SBV2 with the Carbon Conversion Kit and the SBV2 Pro? And if so what is it?
Also, where Can I buy the Carbon Conversion Kit?
-Thanks

The SBV2 PRO has new arm and hub carrier material.

Where do you live?

Can you buy the new arm and hub carriers or do they only come with the PRO and if so how much $$ are they?

Cool

So it's more than just the SBV2 with all the hop-ups? It's a completely new buggy??

Okay pretty much what I'm trying to say is, if you already had the regular V2, could up "turn it into" a V2 PRO with parts that were available seperatly?

SRY 1 more thing... Can the batteries be mounted differently like in the PRO or could they if you got the Carbon Conversion Kit? Or would you be able to buy the main chassis piece for the PRO and use that? -Thanks

The main chassis is the same.
The new PRO top deck has an extra mounting hole option for the centre roll brace.

If the retail for the PRO is USD$360 than do you know about how much it would be at other stores? Also do you know the exact date the PRO is coming out?
