I have US 008 and I race it on asphalt. The biggest problem is 64P spur and pinion. They collect much easy particle from the ground than 48P.
Maybe because our track is not perfect clean. I switched to 48P and now is much better.

Ya spending over $500 is getting a little out of hand. I could see if it had all the aluminum parts but even the shocks are still plastic.

XRay stuff is expensive, no doubt, especially in the context of the world economy (the U.S. dollar is relatively weak vs. the Euro). BUT, the first time you build an XRay kit, you will know where all that money went. The fit and finish is amazing. XRay kits are absolutely the best manufactured kits I have ever assembled.
