I've got the Alza 5b TVP's and they are very strong. Very high quality.  I beat on this thing without any worries as far as the TVP's go.  Impressed me so much I'm currently building a Flux XL using the Alza TVP's.
Alza Flux 5b build - started out as Flux XL ... then grew !!!

good to know. nice build also. i have no want to make it longer, i really like the stock wheelbase. id like to know if the carbon plates hold up as well cause the weight savings would be nice.

I am like you...I love the shorter wheelbase....I run IRC (standard) althought the wheelbase is still changed up some. I can't really recommend them for the price either

If you can find carbon plates (specifically isotrophic) let me know as I've been looking for a few years now.;-)

You've probably made a decision by now but was browsing through the SC store and it has CF plates in stock for the X .. Just sayin
