Quite a few differences. I am not sure if all of the components will transfer from '17-18 but I think they will. EA would know the answer to that.

Maybe actually come with a graphite axle instead of making us by it extra?

I know of at least two people that installed the graphite axle and it was out of round, they had to go back to the steel.

This has been talked about but we will have to see when they release the final specs.

This is the first Ive heard of this issue. Ive had some faulty tire truing adapters make it appear the axle was warped or hub bent when it was actually the truer that wasnt cutting the tire straight.

I have not had the axle out of round, new. But, I have "bent" them in my F1, lol. I don't know why a XRay graphite axle will bend when others snap, lol.
The issue I have had with tire wobble is usually from the hubs wheel mount holes not being perfectly centered. Swapped hubs, no more wobble. Because of this, I either use the A/E axle and hubs or the IRS set. Never had wheel wobble since. And still have a brand new set of XRay hubs in my box, used the axle in my F1

Will X-Ray keep the same style of shock, or will they change it to a micro style shock like other 12th scale cars?
