More expensive to do it that way, by far.

No it is not. The Masami Kit has a different Chassi plate which makes it way stiffer ... now its comparable to an msx or an T2 on hard setting. So it is much better for carpet racing than the old BD was.

You can order only the plate to: BD-002MG

I don't know which plate is in the Grainger Kit ... BD-002 G, MG or GH?

depends an what you need. If you need a more stable rear end the long upper link is your way to go. If you need a bit more steering the shorter one should be better
