diffrence between Vcom and Ripper

Hi got my ripper yesterday and thought i would check a few things between them .

I found it quite interesting that i could use a vcom backcap on the ripper and that it feels allot lighter but is only about 20 gram lighter on the scale.

Does other backcaps fit the ripper ?

Well .... All Victories (V1, V2, Ripper, Vcom, VIS, and Reptile) are all the same with the exception of the milling, the engines they include and the birds that came stock from the factory. The engines from each will fit in any other, and the backcaps should also be compatible between them, other than as you see with that Vcom backcap the milling from one will not match the other.
So any Victory backcap should fit the other in theory.

I always thought the shape of the backcap would be different and not fit between the different body styles . I guess its the same raw milled backcaps then

the reptile has a differen back cap. I'm willing to bet that it fits anything else, though

Yep, I have used the VIS backcap on a Ripper and Reptile without issue to test a Vcom engine.
