I always assumed they were some sort of dessicant.

It's exclusive paper. Made for more durability while building the car. Paper is made of trees grown in their own factory under perfect circumstances.

Thanks Daniel Kies

I believe Hobby pro has 81mm cvd's and possibly Durango. Spec R racing has 81mm hardened Durango cvd's. They also have a double cardone front swing shaft for the XB4 (cvd and drive axle assembled) It promotes smoother steering and less chatter at higher speeds and thus less wear. They are $45 and pre assembled. I have heard great things about them and actually ordered a set myself but have not installed. I also have heard the above mentioned Durango cvd's Spec R makes are very durable.
Oh Spec R is in Hong Kong but there shipping is very fast to the states (7 days) They have a great rear wing mount, aluminum rear uprights, aluminum cvd collars, aluminum 9 degree caster blocks. These parts are really nice and priced well.
They have a couple other XB4 alloy upgrades but I can't comment on them as I have not used them. I would imagine they are gtg.

Hope this helps my friend.

They care for many reasons. Hence let's say they have a lot of inventory pertaining to a certain kit, etc. Bad reviews can hamper sales especially sales to potential buyers whom have no knowledge of the product.

People have stated they will change their reviews when they recieve the part and thus the issue resolved. Pretty simple for a retailer to obtain positive reviews by simply providing the part(solution).
Reviews really don't matter to the the experienced consumer per product of interest but to the consumer whom has no real knowledge or experience, reviews being positive or negative per product of interest can weigh heavily on what may be purchased.

Consumer reviews are usually what triggers companies to improve on a product, terminate a product and so on.
