Default Rc8T RTR vs FT kit..Need some help

So I am planning to get a new RC8t and converting it to brushless with my MMM 2200 combo. I don't race (at a real track) but just bash with friends on our VERY rough homeade tracks. My question is for the sake of bashing and saving some money would it be wiser of me to buy the FT kit and convert it or byt the RTR and sell off all unused parts for some money back (engine, controller, servo, easystarter, etc.)? What are the main differences between the RTR and kit besides the obvious fact it is RTR. Is the kit that much more durable? Are the parts I could sell even worth selling?

I f you get the RTR, there is a rebate for a header and pipe that you can put up for sale with the motor and tank and junk...the RTR comes with stronger shock towers and less pretty stuff but they are close to the same...

I saw that pipe deal. Now I am just looking for the cheapest place to get the RTR.
