I know Justin's build pretty well considering we (zr2usa) watched/helped with it starting a little over a year ago.
again, not trying to start anything, but just trying to help show the OP the D44 will be fine for what he is using it for. he needs to try and figure out the future of how he will use it and try and build it once. i went through the D44 phase and wish I went with the d60 first only to save money. I got bit by the bug pretty bad and love wheelin hard.
