It's not the Blue "Eye Candy" that makes the FT worth it, it is the performance items that most have said that they have added already that make it worth while because you will spend the difference between the kits for those items anyways. Personally I have found that the clip on heat sink actually traps the heat in the motor so I do not use that item.
Prices according to Tower (You can find cheaper). www.speedtechrc.com
Lightweight Diff Assembly..$35.18 for 2
Full Graphite Component Set..$59.99
Threaded Shock Kit..$49.99
Titanium Turnbuckles..$26.99 (not a must)
Teflon Bearing Kit..$99.99
Aluminum Screw Kit..$11.99 (not a must)
Blue Hex Drives..$13.99 (not a must but very nice)
Aluminum CVD's..$38.58 (not a must)
Sway Bars..$15.38 for 2
Blue Heatsink..$11.99 (not a must)
That's $365 worth of items for $150 more on the kit price. There are a few items I couldn't find that would add more onto that total.
It's a No Brainer to me.
The BRP front bumper is an absolute must for your self proclaimed "Drive by Brail" method.
