I noticed a slight increase in rear side-bite and stability. I moved them to the back a couple of months ago when I started running a front gear diff and I've left them back there ever since!

Did you replace the rear 50mm axles with the 50mm ECS or 52?

Exact same thing I found. It's not a necessary upgrade but I did like the feel of having them in. I use 50mm in the rear.

Are people using the genuine ecs shafts or one of the many aftermarket brands? I'm looking to get some and what to know what's best

50mm....... 52mm in the back can feel unstable depending on diff and arm angles.

What's the wear like for those that have ran week in week out since the car came out,
More the high cost things like diff out drives and drive shafts,
Thanks

The only thing I've replaced out of regular wear is bearings...and I've probably put 2.5-3k laps on the car. A couple parts have broken, but that was due to electronic or driver failure.

To add, make sure to use quality bearings at the hubs and maintain them regularly, especially with ECS shafts. Cheap or worn bearings cause more axle wobble.... The excessive vibration seems to affect ECS shafts more than regular ones, especially if they aren't built properly

Really? How about run it before doing so, see what times you get. Then put them in to see if you really feel a difference.
