Yes ECS shafts are a must have imo.
The stock shafts scrub speed and make the front end chatter which makes the car push a little.

I've only done it once so far. Just to refresh everything when I went through the whole car. I've noticed they swell quite a bit over time though.

Been running the Xray ones for about a year now with no issues at all. Also had the RSD ones in my mod car again with no issues.

The swelling depends on the manufacturer of the oil you're using.

They don't swell with Xray oils.

I use X-ray oil and they still swell.

I need to replace the belts on my car, so how do you guys feel about the white xray belts? Are they worth it? And how long do they last? Longer or shorter life compared to stock belts? Or would you recommend other brands/xray belts? I am running blinky 17.5 btw. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance

I've been running Spec-r belts and I've got no complaints.

Note: get the ones for the r1, not the ones for the xray cars.
