I've never owned a clone but I guess all the parts are interchangeable.

I personally cannot recommend Ken or EngageRC.
He has been very under-handed here in RCU and due to his constant breaking of the forum rules as well as several of his dishonest acts, I would not recommend EngageRC to anyone.

One of the things Ken did was to create an alternate account and pretend to be a noob asking questions and constantly linking his EngageRC site.
His motive was to only spam his EngageRC site as much as possible. Both of these acts (creating alternate accounts and spamming one's own business site without paying for proper advertisement banners) are against the RCU rules and at the very least dishonest.
You can do a search on RCU's search engine (search "EngageRC" and "Puff") and you will see his tactics.
And based on these acts, I personally cannot trust him as a businessman.

If you want to buy from Ken, do keep this in mind. If he is willing to do this here in RCU, there is no telling what he would do if you dare give him your money.

If you want a KM, buy from DanLC instead. He sells them too, and he can probably give you a better deal. All you have to do is ask.

You'd be better off buying a used HPI with some mods.

+1
also, it might be Ken, drumming up business...

DanLC is a good guy to work with!

What is so bad about buying from Engage rc? I have read almost every post about Engage rc, and never found anything that indicated he rips people off. I got my T1000 from him with no problems.

the only 'bad' thing about ken is that he often drop ships.... sometimes it can cause problems, to be honest other than that he is not so bad to deal with...he is not a man of many words but is usually able to help out....

Check out ebay, they have quite a few on there. I got both of my KM vehicles off there.  $499 and free shipping.

I found this by accident on the fine design web site tonight:

http://finedesignrc.com/deals.asp

Scroll down to the Baja's on this page. Not sure which company makes this particular clone though.

I looks like an old KM Baja because of the body and the purple chassis.
