I haven't had an issue with this piece yet, but I've seen a few go on other cars.
I'm sure you would have plenty of interest.

X2 for me as well, yeah! It's a part I've been wanting a stronger version of for a while. I've only broken one once, but I've seen a few others break it and it sucks having to buy the whole bellcrank assembly just for that one piece.

With it being that warm on the track you may want to think about thicker oil up front. Silicon oil viscosity drops almost in half at 130-140 deg F. You car may be OK at the start of the race but half way thru the oil is thinning which will increase over-steer. Here's a good article to read,

http://www.twf8.ws/php/tip/shock.html

You want to lower your roll-center not raise it. Try Medium hing pin blocks front and rear with notch up in front and notch down in the rear of the car. Top camber link slightly angled down to center of car in front compared to lower a-arm. Down slightly to parallel in rear compared to lower a-arm.

Try running 344 springs up-front and 306 in the rear.

Look at some of the setups on Hanulec's Wiki page.

Its is a few mm narrower and has a different flex characteristic, it seems to be working well on asphalt and carpet for everyone that has switched to it.

Yes please If you do make it, don't copy the stock part exact, because you need to dremel the front part of it (in front of the ball studs) a bit to make it clear the pulley if you choose to run the forward position. There is more material there than needed.

I have not tried the exotek myself, it has a little more flex and offers a 2nd servo mounting position, other than that they are similar.
