Apparently, they look the same and have the same dimensions, but the hinges and latches have been upgraded, and the logo is stamped into the side instead of a rivited-on plate.

For my trouble, they threw in free shipping, so I saved $46 bucks!

Woo-hoo! Way to go Twisted Throttle! (I love those guys!)
I have the 1.5-1st Gen Trax cases (in the picture) and they leak. The 2nd-1st Gen came with the corners sealed during manufacture and some report they still get some leakage. The latest Evo cases have a single piece lip/seal/channel rather than the multipiece of the 1st gen cases. They 2nd Gen Evo cases also have upgraded lock/latches. I'm in the process of passing my current Trax set to my son for his Wee Strom and I'm going to replace them with a 2nd Gen/Evo set later this summer. You did well with the upgrade!
