I answered over on ICDO as well.
The main reason we decided to go with the bushmaster, is because they are cheap, and easily upgradeable. You can pick up a bushy for like $20, so it kind of gives everyone a good starting off point. Plus, with all the upgrades available for them, they will all turn out looking different.
That being said, if you wanted to enter, and the only caveat was that you wanted to do a freestyle, I say go for it. I mean, anything you do is gonna be sick. We just wanted to have one starting off point, so there would be a little continuity, and in the end, make the judging easier.
With your shocker background, I see why the freestyle would be a better starting point for you, but I'm sure you could make a bushy just as good as a freestyle
