get the bk2, its cheaper. not only that, you won't have to worry about breaking a one way diff, or replacing belts. Not only that, the xxx-4 is kinda on the fragile side, especially if you like to hit stuff.

Get the one that has a more supported racing class at your local track.
If you're not going racing, get a XXXT. It will run better on unprepared surfaces like baseball diamonds and dirt lots.

Actually a new XXX-4 (non-graphite) costs $170 new. The BK2 costs $250 new but you can get them used for a lot cheaper. If i was you i would get the XXX-4.
