I think the EU kit should come with this and a multi-diff (oneway/spool) like the Cyclone has.

If Xray included everything with the kit, the price would be like $700.

For the price of these kits all of there new technology should be included. I don't understand how so much R&D goes into there kits and they realize that there is chatter when turning which affects handling, and the kits are sold with this handling defect and people consider the fix to be an upgrade. I don't think so. REMEMBER I run XRAY and will continue to because I swear by there handling and durability. I just don't want any secrets to be kept til after the release of a new kit. This is just MY opinion.

i can see where folks are stating, hey if xray touts that they are the art of performance or what have u. chargin 500bux on a kit thats the pinnacle of technology and evolving it every yr into yet another kit to buy. then shouldnt the term 'hop-up' be instead somethin used in say, tamiya's vocabulary. just a thought.

Why would I want such a heavy rotating object at the front of my car.
The only people who need diff's race foams, if so they get the US version.

The team manager for the distributor in the UK has already said if you have a 008 you don't need a 009 It's just a 008 with a few minor refinements.

The ECS driveshafts are an option probably because they are expensive. Having a second set of pins in them etc means they will be even more expensive to repair if you crash a lot.

There are many other brand make dcj for xray, no point of buying Xray. I broke the old version twice because the set screw come out when I still had T4 2013, later I adopted those G clip style dcj and never look back, never failed and lot cheaper to use or repair.
