Default Used K1s

Is it better to buy a cheap but well maintained KI, or go for a more expensive K1 Aero?

Or put it another way: Which bits would i need to upgrade on a K1, vs which bits would I need to upgrade on the K1 Aero?

TIA.

Put it this way, if you buy a K1 you will mostly need to buy big bore shocks, gear diffs, and then obviously any hop ups you want to fit. If you buy a K1 Aero, you will only really need the alloy chassis, and of course any hop ups. Of course though, there are rumours around that a new 4wd will be around soon

That's the original K1 spec which is what a lot of people run.
