Default Rovan vs King Motor

Hello, I plan on purchasing a clone buggy this summer. I apologize if this has been discussed to death, but I could not find the specifics I am looking for. I am torn between the King Motor and the Rovan.

Pros:The Rovan has a 36cc engine available. The King Motor has better tires, and upgraded aluminum shock towers/supports.

Cons:The Rovan has "pin" rear tires, and I have heard they wear extremely quickly on pavement. The King Motor has a 30.5cc engine, which is smaller than the one in the Rovan.

The King Motor is $50 or so more expensive, but the better wheels/shock towers seems to be worth that price.

I have heard people say that the Rovan uses better plastic, but I'm not sure if that's a big difference.

Is the 36cc that much faster than the 30.5cc? I've heard some people say theres plenty of power regardless, and both engines are plenty powerful.

I do not plan on racing, just messing around in the backyard and in parks by the house. Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me!
