I now have an X-5 as well. It has by far the best launch off the line compared to the shafties! Wish I could make it stop sounding like an old typewriter on takeoff and heavy braking!!!!
Has so many setups available compared to the likes of BJ4 and some others, particulalry in the rear. Handles very well.
Mate of mine had a Yoke. The main prob they have is that the diffs are open and constantly get dirt or rocks jammed between the belt and the diff. Also the rear camber link "trails" the control arm, so camber goes positve before going negative on compression! Apparently you can put the inner ballstud upside down to help stop this?
