Default Is the Scion XB Switch any better than the Abarth Switch?

Has anybody gotten a Scion XB Switch that has experience with the original release Swich? Are any of the early problems ( gear noise, bad steering, wheel hop. lack of power ) been fixed? Tony G ?

No change to the Switch platform just a longer wheelbase a different body. The option steering upgrade will help with the slop. As far as gear noise its still the same across all the cars. Here is my switch with most of the up-grades.

Car handles great with the right choice of tires. I have had luck with x-patterns and ABC slicks.
