I run that kit and it's a good setup. The extra weight hasn't been an issue at all, I can't say I noticed the difference actually and I know my bike so if it was significant, I would know it. The only potential problem with it is the tie-rod extensions, they are barely adequate. You should definitely shell an extra 50$ for real extended tie-rods. I got mine from TQS for 44$ for a pair if I remember right.

BTW I've crashed a couple times and did several unexpected jumps with hard landings and never bent a bracket.. I'm 285# so I guess that speaks for itself. I wouldn't be scared to go on a track with this kit, despite what I've heard (minus the tie-rod extensions, of course, they are junk).

PS: Instead of getting the rear spacers, the G-force axle for ~200$ is a good choice too. Worth looking into if you can shell it.
