I'm sure it's a thin and very light shaft, and it appears the pluses far outweigh the negatives. It would have been sweet if the F8x had a break through tech like this. There were rumors of 3 turbos, then and electric turbo and what was given to us was essentially an N54 with direct injection, valvtronic and cooling for a tuned N54. Not terrible but not ground breaking either... not to mention it sounds like a$$.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
