It looks as though the holes on the front bulkheads would allow the old upper bumper brace to be mounted, it turn allowing the old sway bars to work. We'll know for shur when we get it.

I was thinking Xray had another swaybar mount design in mind. Having to use the old bumper mount/brace to install the swaybar seems counter productive.

Well, it seems as though the holes were put there to mount a swaybar directly to the bulkheads, but they may have designed it so that the old one would work to for those who still have the ones from the 05s or 04s.

What do you mean "we"? You still have a BRAND NEW, unassembled '05 in your posession. What a shame.

It seems it would be a brilliant solution to the turbulant battery sizes. Rather than sanding more/less on a chassis, XRAY could just manufacture a different size cut out on the inserts. Does this make sense? Why is no one doing this?



I imagine it is to make the changes in shock position inctrementally smaller. The holes are too close together to make them individual holes. This may be due to a cahnge in geometry which ncessitates the closer together hooles. just a guess . .

the Yokomo BD has the plastic trays that you put into the battery slots. it works great. raises the battery a tad. (1mm) BUT it saves you the trouble of having to file the slots.

Default Camber link mounts...

Does anyone know why the new Xray doesn't have horizontal camber link mounts (see previous pics). I noticed most high end tourers have them...is there not a big tuning advantage?

Bob - is Stormer's pre-order process similar to SpeedTech in that confirmation is requested before the purchase is charged, or is it charged as soon as the kits arrive?

Car looks beautiful. At first glance it doesn't look much different than the FK05, appart from the bulkheads, but there appear to be numerous small changes.

I am so incredibly dissapointed that they didn't design new shocks, but who knows, maybe they did and it just isn't obvious.
