    It's good to see time and money being spent on development of newer ideas.

    It’s the difference between driving something with production car like feel and quality and something that feels like a typical British kit car from the 1960s,
    Now days when these cars are built properly the resale value is high enough to cover the cost of parts like these if built to a high standard

    I agree that our cars are getting more valuable and can stand higher part cost, however I have to say I don't remember any issues with the driveshafts on my Dax?

    Mine knocks very very slightly when reversing, and knocks very slightly more if not reversing in a straight line but no one except me has ever noticed it.

    Solution - never reverse. Practice flicking it round with a throttle stab. Problem solved .

    Mines fine but I like the idea. Keep up the development.

    The machining looks lovely - I'd buy a set just for that

    But er.. I'll try and finish the damn thing first, and then spend money on bits to put the finishing tweaks in place.

    Why should I spend £ 1607 at XCS, as I can buy all the items at JK Sports Cars for £ 599 (all four UJ´s & shaft, flanges comes with the chassis pack)?
