The alloy bulkheads will ensure the layshaft stays straight under hard acceleration and braking. The set includes two red anodised alloy bulkheads that are a direct replacement.

Xpress Execute XM1S vertical top deck conversion

Coming soon from Xpress is a vertical top deck conversion for the Execute XM1S M-class touring car. The conversion does away with the standard top deck for a construction that allows to adjust lateral flex by adding or removing posts but at the same time the design greatly reduced the car or becoming tweaked in the event of a crash, for more predictable handling in all conditions. In addition the set includes a front belt tensioner that prevents the belt from skipping. The set will hit stores soon.
