If you look at the parts they give you in the WC kit vs the parts in the 2010 spec kit and price the parts as if you purchase them separately, it's actually a good deal for $670.
Nt1 2010 Spec Kit $475
Graphite Upper Holder for Bumper $18
Downstop Independent Alu Front Anti-roll Bar $52
2-speed Shaft - Lightweight $21
Front Middle Shaft - Lightweight $12
Alu Wheel Hubs $22
Lightweight Diff Outdrive Adapter - Short $15
Lightweight Diff Outdrive Adapter - Long $15
Alu Hardcoated Diff Pins $6
Graphite Battery Plate $18
Alu Radio Plate Mounts (L+R) $32
Brass Engine Mount (I can only find a 3rd party version of this part)
Ventilated Brake Disc $20
Lightweight Brake Disk Adapter $18
Lightweight Carrier For 2-speed Gear $26
Lightweight Drive Flange $28
Alu Brake Post Arm $15
XCA High-dynamic Clutch Set $79
Lighweight Clutchbell $32
Lightweight Flywheel $19
All together that totals $923 if purchased separately. That's a ton higher than $670 they are asking for the WC kit.
It's like with any car, look at my Kyosho V-One RRR WC Team Edition. Basic car was priced around $480 too but when you add the lightweight flywheel, lightweight clutch bell, lightweight first gear housing, Titanium 2 speed shaft, 3racing ventilated disk brake, Kyosho APP pad set, one piece engine mount, aluminum hubs and small parts it does get to be up near the $700 mark before any engine or electronics.
