Somewhere it was posted they are in US ports awaiting custom clearance and should be in dealers late next week.

You guys are making WAY too much of the pinion clearance! Does it clear, yes! Does it clear by 2mm or 1", who cares, it clears.

You want the cutting edge of car technology but then piss and moan when the company delivers.

Why all the trouble with this release? It seems like XRay have struggled this time around. I appreciate that they're trying to get everything right. Did they announce the new kits too soon, perhaps? Or were they too eager to make them available by Christmas?

syndrome, there's a 0% chance you'll get an answer from someone who knows the answer.

I think it was the last sentence you stated.
I just wish one of the "parts being updated by XRAY included" was the new Composite Diffs

Boo, that's no fun. :-)

I imagine Christmas + unexpected production delays = sux. They're probably pretty bummed about it, it's apparent they take great pride in their products and presentation.

I hope they get the car to people before Novak, I'd like to see how it does, especially on rubbers.

I seriously doubt there was too small of a gap. I'm with Anthony L. This is cutting edge technology and there are tolerances that we will have to deal with.

The troll strikes again. This time really showing his ignorance. Maybe you missed the headlines, AE is owned by Thunder Tiger out of Taiwan. The TC5 is manufactured completely in Taiwan, good job showing those oversea companies who's boss!
