The chassis you are considering is the R170. Go back to the home forum page and scroll down to the Roadster forums. You'll find the R170 forum there. The good folks in that forum all own the same chassis you are considering, and should be better able to answer your questions than this general forum.
The R170 is not a particularly common vehicle, so R170 owners are your best sources of information. The drive train is available in a lot of different MRZ chassis, so it should be reasonably reliable. Beyond that, the roadster forum is your bet.
If you would take time to fill in your profile information it would help.
