inet, looks a bit cleaner, and has a cool cut out of INET in it. ahh, they are both the same thing, and both have their ups and downs. Go with whichever your heart desires!

I like the lower links on the gecko 2, Very handy to mount shocks and you can change the ride hight in seconds. I do like the Inet too it's well made and it has that cool factor of having the name on the frame. I have a gecko 2 and am very happy with it. I can't say much about the Inet because I do not have one nor have a seen one in person. I say get the one that will work for the best for me it was the gecko 2.

I have the Inet and my friend has a Gecko-1.

The basic design is pretty much the same, but there are a few things that need to be taken into account.

1. The Inet is A LOT cleaner! The Gecko lines are not cut streight and the chassis has several cosmetic flows. Some people might find it bothering (I know my friend does)
2. The links on the Inet are much bigger which means much stronger, and that's an obvious advantage.
3. The Inet has Allum shock mounts which are an extra on the Gecko.

The Gecko2 probebly has most of those flows fixed, but I don't know how it compares to the Inet. This only refers to the original Gecko.

Hello Guys,

Just to set the record straight, all of the Gecko 1 and Gecko 2 chassis kits are CNC'ed. They have been like this for several months. The Gecko 2 chassis adds CNC lower 4-links. The previous edition Gecko 1 wasn't CNC'ed, I made those by hand.

Yeah, only the old geckos were done by hand. I was pretty sure that thee 2nd generation was, otherwise this would have come up before. Heck, we all know they are both great chassis, so I guess go with the better cosmetics, whichever is more your style!
