that's about the right price and you cannot get replacement parts for the outdrive which wears pretty fast.

However, going by other parts...they should be very good quality.
I would only go with the Kanai 2 myself, propably different materials...

Trucks will be much more stable, but buggies will be able to rip around the track a little faster due to their size and weight. From the pics I've seen, I'd go with a truck.

I do! I do! I loved that car

Hopefully now that the new XXXKE2 has adjustable arm width, it will handle more like a XX.
