Actually i would think the new one-way would cost the factory almost the same in build costs as the ball diff.

You and only you can decide if you got value for money. If you don't think it's value than buy the next best car but it will allways only ever be the next best car to an xray.

Blake....

you may need to talk to Brahma about their slogan...'Ultimate Power'....for me...please....

Keeps making me think of a kid's website someone posted a while back....it's about how ninja's kick ass because they freak out and kill people...

www.realultimatepower.net

I'm not saying anything about the Brahma stuff...I'm sure it's decent...I honestly haven't had a chance to see any of it in person so can make no comment good or bad...but this connection just can't seem to get outt amy darnhead

You don't have to get that excited...but maybe I can get them to do a warning label for ya.

"Warning, may cause you to crap your pants."

On that note has anyone had much success using the Tamiya shocks on the Xray?

It should come with front and rear sway bars and aluminum shocks. One-way should be optional.
