Default Losi Speed-T...what XXX-T parts are compatable?

I see most of this truck has the same parts as a Losi Desert Truck, except for the trans diff. My question is what XXX-T parts might be compatible as well? I'm interested to see what XXX-T Graphite parts I can fit up to it.

The parts are interchangable mix and matching will work either direction

While this is essentially correct, the parts do have differences. The SpeedT shock towers, for instance are quite a bit different (they lay the shocks down more, etc.) so although the shock towers can, indeed be interchanged, you may find some geometry changes. This is not a "problem", just something to be aware of...

good point the parts are interchangable BUT as mentioned they are NOT THE SAME parts. IE shock towers and shocks!

Yeah, that I know....and the shocks are 3/4" shorter on the Speed-T than the other vehicles....I'm more concerned over the hubs, carriers, arms, etc....thanks again for all the input.

From what little research I've done, the A-Arms, hubs, etc. are the same as the original XXX-T, XXX-T RTR family. They don't have the VLA features like the MF2 or XXX-TCR, but the TCR parts should fit if the A-Arms and hubs are changed as a combo. The tranny is the original 2.43 version that is now back in the CR series...
