Default 1.5 or 2.5...which is it?

I have a T-maxx roller. How do I tell the difference between the old school 1.5 or the following 2.5 model? I have had several t-maxx trucks but that was years ago and I don't remember the differences. Thanks

Well if it has a pro .15 engine in it, its the 1.5. It will say it on the side. Also, it has a side header, and the carb is a rotating carb. Even if it has a new engine it has to be a rotating carb. < tell tale sign. So if the Pro 15 is in there then its the old school t-maxx.

This is a roller with no engine, no exhaust. I knew that difference but without the engine I have to just look at differences in the chassis. Maybe the length of the arms or wheel base or something... Anybody?

Ok, well if it still has stock front a-arms they only have 2 shock mounting holes on the bottom, the 2.5 has 4. Also, the old school t-maxx gas tank has a plunger sticking straight out the body (on top) of the tank.

EDIT: also, the old school has a hole in the chassis on the engine side, the 2.5 doesnt
