XRAY - A very important option would be Rear Axle /Bearing Adjusters to Raise the Axle in order to Lower the Ride Height of the X10 Link. The 2 is the highest. A 2.25, 2.50 and a 2.75 who be very much appreciated and I believe would make the car even more competitive.

I agree. With the 2 and fresh tires the rear end is way too high.

Guys, put 4mm shims between Link Graphite Rear Pod Lower Plate 2.5mm and rear bulkheads...

Do you need longer screws? Will that not alter other settings?

That raises the Motor and centre of gravity.

It would be great if Xray would offer optional Axle Carriers like the competition.

Yes, the center of gravity is higher than initial position but it is better than 7mm (and more) of clearence height.
The second advantage is the side shock works better (longer motion of piston) due to higher positon of a top holder.

We used this "workaround" on several cars during whole season

Elliot, I agree with you new axle carries are better than this workaround
