Re: Okay, I have $350 saved up
I've heard that too, Newbie. I haven't heard or read anything bad about either of these companies or their products, even after extensive use of the search feature here.
I bought my first 2 stroke kit from Duane back in 08 and have since built other two strokes from different vendors. They weren't quite as good as the Dax kit and his service and communication were excellent.
