Default Redcat twister same as Traxxas rustler?

Recently came across and old redcat twister xrg. Been looking up as much info on parts and troubleshooting as itís pretty rusty and runs rough. Then it occurred to me that the Traxxas rustler looks identical. Anyone know if these parts would be interchangeable or not?

Some parts might be close enough to fit, but from pix I see nothing identical. - which rustler parts are you looking to put on the redcat?

That thing looks like a hybrid of Team Associated T4, Thunder Tiger Phoenix, Losi XXT and something else combined and sold as a Redcat Racing Twister. The steering rack, servo saver, front bulkhead, top plate, arms, shock towers, steering/caster blocks, rear hub carriers, slipper, servo arm, chassis u-brace, and servo mounts scream RC10T4 at me. Download the manuals and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I believe you are right Rusty ! I watched a video of a guy who swapped out some of the front end with TA parts ( buggy version ) .
My Buggy has a HPI E-Firestorm diff/gearbox ( 1 screw boss on the case needed to be shortened for the wing mount ) !

I'm painfully slow at moving things around in Matter Control. Took me hours to cut; paste, and juggle shapes into something that works like a cover for these power supplies..
