I have not run my RRv4 with them on as of yet, but will say the fit is spot on. No flexing like the plastic ones, which should result in fewer bent $hock $haft$.  :D

Oh well... there goes the budget  :unsure:

For my X4 i will not just get a set of them but also the alloy forks too, i just don't like the plastic ones.  And they do help to reduce the bending and snapping... so long as you don't cartwheel it too much  :lol:

Not so much the bending, but more the snapping problem that we were having.  With all the flex the shafts were snapping right at the start of the threaded section of the shaft.

no prob.  I noticed one of my shafts was bent, so i spun it around so if it bends again, maybe it will bend it straight LOL.

I'll be ordering these to give a shot. Worse case they at least look good!
