Exactly what svt said. Weight bias shifts forward a bit (how much depends on what battery pack you run), you get more room for an interior, and you completely hide the tranny/motor assembly if you want to use a cab back/truggy or flatbed. If you look at my first SCX10 II thread and then Roo's SCX10 II thread (which uses the Vaterra K10 truggy body), we discuss reasons and benefits in more detail.

A little follow-up on the receiver box, just FYI. We were moving some things around this weekend in Roo's 10.2 to make room for a full-depth interior, which means relocating the receiver box. When Roo opened the stock box to take out the receiver, here's what we saw:

The setup and usage are pretty typical. There are only three servo leads coming out of the receiver (steering servo, ESC and winch controller), and this truck hasn't been submarined (it's been through plenty of puddles, of course). The water infiltration wasn't a problem for us since we had treated the receiver with conformal coating, but it does suggest that calling the receiver splash resistant or water resistant might be a bit safer than calling it waterproof.

X2. Will this work with the brazin scale 10.2 chassis?

We haven't tried it out on aftermarket frame rails, so we couldn't say one way or the other. If you try it, please let us know.

Pretty much as long as the motor will bolt up to the SCXII transmission, it will work. There is a ton of space for longer motors, a Pro4HD fits easily into my truck.

You will need to reverse the rotation of the motor by rotating the endbell 180*.
