Default B4RS and B4 parts

On my LHS site, some of the associated parts say (B4, others just say B4 RTR) Is there a difference in these parts?
For example, it says "Blue front shock body (B4 RTR)" Is this referring to the B4RS and will all the normal B4 parts fit on the B4RS?

There are differences in the materials used between the Factory Team and the RS versions of the B4. For starters, the shocks on the FT kit are hard anodized and Teflon coated for smoother movement and longer wear. The RS shocks are simply blue anodized and do not have the long wear of the FT shocks. The plastics between the two kits are different. The FT kit uses a graphite reinforced plastic which is stiffer and lighter than the standard plastics in the RS.

The nice thing is, you can slowly upgrade the RS to FT spec over time as your budget allows.

I think the RS also use graphite reinforced plastic.
