I don't know the part numbers off hand, but the main difference in geometry comes from the shock towers. The B battery box makes a big difference but is not applicable for electric. And the suspension mounts are a strenght and adjustbaility issue as are the aluminum shocks.

So if you buy the shock towers you will be very close.

I did the bbs and towers as I had the m2c racing a,b,c blocks. Just that switch dropped my lapes 1/2 a sec. or more. The new shock towers are AWESOME. Most of the blue stuff is on backorder right now. I hear it's going to be in the stores in early Augest.
