Bro, the "right kit" is the one you can race every weekend. If you're waiting for parts from Korea you're not racing. Talk to your LHS and see what they stock. Walk in KNOWING that you won't make the decision in the store. Ask around, get educated, read and keep asking questions like you're doing now. Find out what you can SUPPORT to keep running. Parts on one rig may be 50% more than another. One part may be pennies but you can't find it. If you're really serious about racing and are prepared to break the $1K mark then find out what you CAN keep running versus what one guy or another likes. STAYING racing is much more important than driving a show queen back to the pits cuz you just smoked an elusive part that's hard to find. I chose the rig I did because of all those factors. There is no clear "winner" in what rig is the "best"....only what is best for YOU.

Good luck bro, I've done all I can do to help.
