All the suspension parts are compatible (T3 rear arms have extra mountings for the roll bar). diff parts (T3 uses the 38t pullyslay shaft and shocks. body posts. don't think the roll bars are compatible.

Drill out the Tamiya aluminum cap for the plastic Xray top shock mount.

Could someone state the main differences between the T3 and T3R kit? Am I able to upgrade most fo the parts later to make the T3R a normal T3?

On T3R : No carbon fiber parts, only FRP (glass fiber)
No sway bar, no orange coated parts, no adjutable turnbuckle, no S.Steel drive shaft. check the Xray web site for the exact list.

But honestly, if you really want to upgrade a T3R to T3 (which is of course possible), it's gonna be pricey. More than buying the T3 directly. No point...

Thanks, what would my limitations be racing the T3R without those parts? I am a beginner road guy so do not know much more aside from gearing, camber and caster settings

You really wouldn't be faced with many limitations running the T3R. It is probably the best entry level touring car out there. I would order adjustable turnbuckles and a roll bar kit front and rear because you would want them for any car and you would be set.

I have just bought a T3R to replace a very worn original T2R that i got used to see if I liked Touring cars. With all kit setup on the T3R, I am with 1/10th of a second of my personal best with my old car and on the 2 weeks that I have run it, I have qualified P1 and P2 in the A final. I race on tarmac on a wednesday evening under floodlights and it is easily as quick as any other car on the track. For the money I think it is an amazingly compettitive chassis that has a huge amount of potential without needing to spend vast sums of cash on it.
The only issue I have with it is the ball diff gets dirty very quickly due to no labrynth covers like the T3, my solution? I made some stick on diff covers with a compass cutter and some adhesive vinyl sheet.
Dont get hung up on the must having the absolute latest car thing, buy the cheap one and have fun beating your friends with it
