For an older Six, how come speed pants are so much more than fancy pants, and would there be any difference in performance between the two? I like the looks of the speed pants. Looks much cleaner on the plane than the fancy pants.

Kind of on the fence between Fancy Pants and K2U. I like the way the Fancy Pants fair into the wheel pant rather than screw on, but I like the finished look of the K2U with the upper fairing they have....Realizing that the upper fasiring probably adds little to no performance benefit.
