I am using a Tanaka PF-4000 right now, but am going to try a Robin Subaru EH035.

Yes, I see the $69 Halloween special, and here is the breakdown:
Friction drive kit: $ 69.00
Kill button: $2.50 (price when purchased with kit, included in DAX kit)
Throttle: $10.00 (price when purchased with kit, included in DAX kit)
Long frame bracket: $5.00 (included in DAX kit)
S&H: $12.00
total: $98.50
I am in NY, so I would have to add sales tax to the above, so the BMP is not really a good deal for me, plus the DAX comes with a nicer throttle with integral kill switch, as opposed to the BMP kit's lever throttle and separate 'doorbell button' style kill switch.
Plus, I would have to paint or rustproof the BMP kit's friction drive unit, it comes bare, unpainted metal.
