Default RC8 RTR and Factory Team comparision

I took a spin on AE site but didn't see a full on breakdown on what the differences were exactly between the RC8 RTR and the Factory Team RC8. They have a little blurb, but nothing really down to the bare bones on it.

Anyone got any idea on this?

You can find some information here:

Here are the main differences:
  • Chassis - the RTR doesn't have the extrusions the FT has
  • Show tower - The RTR has alloy and the FT has CF towers
  • Shocks - FT has threaded shocks and 2 piece shock cap, RTR uses pre-load clips and has a molded plastic cap (which most FT owners use on their FT)
  • Chassis braces - FT has alloy braces with plastic end pieces, RTR has plastic braces
  • Radio tray - FT uses CF, RTR plastic

Some small differences:
  • Wheel hexes - FT has slightly wider stance due to thicker wheel hexes
  • Wing Support - FT has alloy pieces between the wing support, RTR plastic

There might be more subtle difference, but these I knew from the top of my head.... My buddy just bought the RTR and we'll compare it to my FT to find other differences...
