Its durability and performance are well worth it. Ive had mine since last september and its held up great. im not saying its indestructable by any means its developing some small cracks, im sure im going to kill it eventually, but me and all my friends are very impressed with how hard of a hit it can take. I would imagine a better driver could keep one looking much nicer than I have.
I cant prove it but I swear somehow, its the reason I havent broken as many a arms and hubs as I used to. So saving just that money and frustration alone has been worth it imo.
Its not exsactly like the speed6 but its very similar. the splitter is more round, the hood doesnt have the bumps in it and there are no wing mounts. the speed6 body doesnt fit over it like people think it does.
