I think I'd rather spend the cash than risk having it break, be caught by a couple of hoops and be stuck in the middle of nowhere! :? [/quote]

Hmm, might be a smartlock thing, my EB2 doesn't have smartlock and it doesn't have a limiter either.

What's the go with the tailshaft? I've pushed my EL XR8 over 200 once or twice on long country runs... I mean the racetrack! Between 180 and 190 there is some vibration that I don't get any other time, but once I pass 190 it's all smooth sailing. Could this be the sign of something nasty?


XR's have alloy tail shafts, therefore its not supposed to be an issue, its only the heavy steel shafts (stock) that are limited to 180, I think you will find the XR's are limited to around 230 with the alloy shaft from memory.

EA/EB/ED shafts are thicker than the EF/EL shafts as well, so be careful. In fact, looking at an EL shaft, I wouldn't drive any faster than 30 with that think attached.
