Default Restoring 86 kyosho ultima few questions

I got an old kyosho ultima from 86 that I am restoring. I plan on using as a light runner nothing to crazy. I am missing some of the rollcage. Would the roll cage/ rear cage from a re turbo scorpion fit? Would parts from the new re ultima fit a vintage ultima? Saw Andy’s arms on eBay they any good?

The roll cage from the re-release Ultima should work, the Scorpion one is completely different. Regarding the release parts, based on other releases the suspension parts should work but the gearbox internals won't fit. To fit re-release gears means swapping over the whole gearbox. The shock lengths are also different so fitting re-release shocks means replacing the shock mounts as well.

The Andy's arms were a must have option, they transformed the handling and me if much more drivable.
