Not knocking the car mind its great, and I'm sure will be even better with these parts

Just not entirely sure charging 130 quid for what is standard everywhere else actually is good value
Its not just that. It means that we would need to spend an Extra 70 to get the car up to the same spec as what the team and what future Setups are running. Its a shame to see such a high priced option part in the 2nd month of 2011 for a 2011 car , especially if they make a big difference. I will be sticking with the H/L/normal links.

I was driving a Tamiya before joining Team Xray and I have to say I actually prefer the roll center holders that come standard on the Xray cars. They are easier to work with and very suitable to most track conditions (which is also a product of the rest of the car's suspension geometry). I don't miss feeling that need that I need .5mm shims here or there to go faster!

Just my $0.02.

That's interesting.

I have the Max Carbon versions of the same thing and 3mm of shims were required to move the balljoint to the same height position as the L1 & L2 QRC's, whereas the Xray parts start with 0mm to achieve the same thing.

So the Max Carbons can be lowered more and the Xray version cannot be made to recreate the '009 orange QRC's

Looking at the pictures, the link-positions are quite high up, but I believe you can make longer links with the Xray version than with the Max Carbon (please correct me if I am wrong).

Do we really need them at the clubman level and will they actually be worth it. I for one am not screaming out for more adjustment than the H and L quick roll centres give me.

Then you won't need them. It is only for super-precise adjustment of rollcenter and the possibility to use longer links, which you probably won't need.

Default Ball Diff

Just got my kit (first Xray and electric tc) and going through it I see the ball diff comes pre-assembled. Should I pull it apart and check it or is it good as is? Looking forward to the build and I may have some questions. Thanks in advance.
