It will certainly be nice to see the difference between Alloy Chassis (TRF201 XMW) and Resin, Plastic, Speed Bike wheels plastic or what ever its made from (TRF211XM)......

I found the 211 a much all round better handling car Mark, think your buddy bought mine.
Just seemed easier to push it, and using AE front arms etc, pretty bullet proof, i did try a full Yokomo front end, but the rear just didnt want to play well with it LOL.

All I have done is remove the TRF211XM mid gear box and fit the YZ2 gearbox. Everything else is TRF211XM.....

But are the whisbones not swapped? like on the TRF201XM?

Yes the wishbones are the High Traction versions not kit wishbones, also swapped round.

Wheelbase at the moment is 288mm this is with the wishbones fitted as they are (switched) and 2mm off the front of the wishbone.
