Default Chassis Bent After Crash - To Upgrade, Or Not To Upgrade?

Hi chaps, my Kyosho Inferno ST had a brief encounter with a wall a few days ago, and it seems that the chassis is now bent. Quite noticeably so. It still runs fine and, with a little trim adjustment, fairly straight too

However, my question is this; Do I just got order a direct replacement (at a cost of roughly 30), or do I pick up this......


.......for roughly the same amount of cash? Is it likely that everything will line up correctly on the aftermarket chassis? Am I likely to see any benefits?

Thanks very muchly

Go with the upgrade. They are always better than the stock parts specially with the price you are getting it at.

When something brakes that means it time to make it better, if possible. So i would be getting the Lightened Chassis if it were me.

Dragon chassis is inexpensive,good for bashing,but if you plan on racing,get the STRR,it is a definite upgrade.
