Our truggy and buggy rear springs are the same so you do not need different springs.

The best thing to do is to backorder it with www.serpentamerica.com and then as soon as they come in you will receive one.

The old diff gears once they are gone wont be available anymore. The diff couplers/bearings/shafts are the same as the TE, the original coupler system is still available for some time.

This car has evolved very quickly into an extremely durable, fast buggy. I am very happy with the 2.0 buggy. I built mine from a TE kit but its there. This is the 1st buggy tthat I can drive faster than the truggy. I actually turned an extra lap during quals last weekend after the full 2.0 kit upgrade. Bolting up a brand new BCE chassis to finish it off for my liking. I just need an alum rear shock tower, the CF stuff never holds up on my cars ...
