Default RTR or build the way I want it?

I don't mind the RTR but I definitely prefer building. My question really is would I be better, and cheaper, in the long run just buying a chassis and building it the way I would like it? Or should I buy the whole thing and go from there? Thanks in advance for any input.

Build it the way you want it. In the long run you will be money ahead.

It's very hard to get all the small parts that it takes to put one of these cars together
The down time waiting on parts is killer also most of the parts may not be available when you want them or need them
Add to this being 1/5 there's not a high demand for some stuff you won't be able to get it until they get enough orders for a production run of them
Or the company may be out of business
Get a car that way you can run it while you're building
And you might find stock or close to it is great to
And if you build then you have a second car to sell race or let wife kids run
