+1, but that won't do a whole lot of good if the crank is shot.

It depends on what you are looking for. They are basically the same except for the tungsten slugs that the speed crank has. The speed crank will be super smooth and the ninja crank will be more snappy.

I would go the other way around - snappy for truggy to move the heavier ride out of corners and into jumps, with smooth on the lighter buggy to calm down the squirly (by comparison) machine. Works for me.
