Yes more flex equals more traction on low to med bite.

You also can order from XRay shop Austria. I ordered center gear diff kit, aluinum center bulkhead, and other parts. Really good prices as no VAT if ordered for stateside delivery.
Shipping is reasonable as well.

I got the wing mount, front driveshafts and shock mounts. Very nice parts and reasonable prices. My rear wing lasts longer now with the extra support of the carbon piece. And the mount is supported by the gearbox so no worries of breaking the shock tower like the exotek mount. Only complaint is they don't come in orange.

Anyone tried the dhawk parts on ebay? Was looking at the shock caps and cups. Way cheaper than exotek. Just a little leary about the quality.

Yes the wing mount is out of stock so I am waiting. Nice job getting the front driveshafts as they really are nice! I have them as well. I am not sure on DHawk either.

I used the Dhawk rear wing mount on my 2014. It works ok but the rear of the tabs bend.

I highly suggest the Spec R wing mount.
