Wow, seriously eh? -about the prices overseas- I will have to check that out. I wonder how much it would cost for duty fees ect. to import it.
So no problems with the bearings? Have you rebuilt them at all yet? I find the stock bearings with MOST of the kits are OK but not the greatest. On my last Mugen (MTX3) they included some pretty cheap metal shielded bearings at the front, and well .. they died pretty quickly and had to be replaced. The rubber shielded bearings were ok, but again .. pretty sub standard.
Most of my buggies life will be spent on-track. So I'm after the best race kit, not nessicarily the best bashing kit. Although, I wouldn't classify the K2 as a bashers kit.
Tony no, I havn't driven either of them ... so feel free to kick me in the head and correct me if I start ranting out my butt without experience to back it
When I said outdated design, I wasn't speaking performance terms. It seems that alot of the kits are moving towards a pivot ball suspension; and the old trusty [ hub design is getting old .... I guess you could correct that, and say its getting old based on current trends.
