"All after-market chassis are not created equal"... if you are gonna spend money on a new chassis make sure you get one that actually weights less than the original one - Go HPI for $75. GPM weigths the same so avoid that one.

Get the Hara racing one or the HPI one. The others are rubbish and heavy.

Yea theres a big difference. The 2004 kit comes with almost all of the hpi hop ups with it. If you plan to upgrade it get the 2004 version it comes out much cheaper then buying the kit and upgrading it. Ive got first had knowledge....
