for the 008 all you need do is get the chassis, i use a US spec for my drifter and to use the 2.5mm EU spec i just buy the chassis. was planning to do that but i figured i will not get the flex in the chassis i was hoping for.

Batteries are more forward on the 9 than the 8.

I think they will interchange. Like mentioned above the battery is moved forward and out 1-2mm for better pinion clearance with NIMH battery bars.You may also need to change the top deck, but not for sure. And the belt on the EU is longer when you use the the forward holes on the 09 EU chassis.

Chassis is interchangable and belts are the same (if you're not using 38T diff gears instead of 34T).
Different belts are in new conversion for 009 for more forward motor position (not included in kit)

For conversion from US to EU, you'll need chassis and top deck, otherwise your car will be too stiff. Maybe front spool, but diff can do the job as well (also depends on motor you want to run).
