X-power adjustable front end

Has anyone tried the X-power adjustable front end?
You can adjust camber, caster and ride height with it.
Part #xp-m03-c36-bk on their website.

Many guys have tried it at my local track. Although I personally don't have it the guys that do use have said that they get more front grip with it. I don't know if that is necessarily true because it looks like their front end gives much more static camber whereas the pn dbl aarm gives more reactive camber. SO based on theory and what I have seen it gives a little more initial turn in while sacrificing on the mid to exit steering. The one other benefit in disguise is that it doesn't scape the track no matter how low you set the ride height. The springs are very soft initially but get stiffer and then fully compress before the chassis touches the ground so you get a lot of usable dampening while never really worrying about ride height. I don't know if this applies that much to rcp users though because the ride height thing mainly helps with the foam tires because it means that you can true tires to a smaller diameter (always makes it faster and better handling) without worrying about losing corner speed due to rubbing. Feeling the front end in my hands it is very smooth when used with the bottom swing arm set and if used with the bottom swing arm set ride height and preload become much easier to adjust compared to a dbl aarm. With all that there are also a couple of racers that I know that have tried it and gone back to the pn dbl aarm because they felt that in the turns the dbl aarm was smoother and was better.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm looking around for a new front end since reflex racing no longer makes theirs and I don't feel like dropping a small fortune in a PN front end for my brushless chassis.
