Never driven the 3.0.
MP9 parts are not any more expensive than Mugen or Xray parts and just marginally more than TLR. There are a couple of parts on the k-car that are priced on the high side, however if you know where to look you can get them pretty cheap

+1

I used to drive a mugen and parts are almost the same price and I don't know how the 3.0 is but the 2.0 parts wore twice as fast as my kyosho and so for me the kyosho is actually cheaper.

Lol....I know. I have to take a new picture of my mp9.
