It all depends on what you want to do and what you think you will want to do. Most will say they bought mid and then ended up going LT. Because they wanted more from the little taste mid travel will give you. I am one of those nut balls who wants to build a rad mid kit. Only because owning LT on the street isn't my thing I'd love a LT toy. Note: I am not bashing those who do run it on the street and go play but for my preferences I will be fine with an over done mid travel kit.
