Default Firehammer vs. FS Racing?

I was looking to pick up a Firehammer, but saw the FS Racing trucks. They look very similar, tho the FS say they're quite a bit bigger, 32" vs. 27". The cheapest I can find a FS is $150 more than the price of the FH. Is the FS any better than the FH? I can't afford any of the pricier ones. Really $500ish is about my limit, but if the FS is that much better to justify the $150 price diff, I may consider it.

Thanks.

Sorry, I eas looking at the Firehammer MT and FS King Kong 2WD MT.

I'd like the 4WD ones, but the only reason I'm even looking at 1/5-1/6 scales is because these are so cheap. Otherwise I can't justify the prices, usually $750 to $1000. A 1/5 or 1/6 (the FH seems more 1/6 size, even tho they call it a 1/5) for the price of a 1/8, I can do that.
