    My vote is to upgrade with as much RPM stuff as possible over aluminum, but I have read mostly good things about HR.
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    I don't have first-hand experience with HR, but I recently upgraded my Maxx to FLM's aluminum chassis with combo bulks. Awesome quality there...

    i haven't read bad things about them, Maybe one person had a fitment issues that's about it. But then just because one person had fitment issue doesn't make them bad.

    I working on an install using the HR Alum diff cups. They looked well made but there was some movement within the spiders, i-bar and cross pin. Only time will tell and it may be nothing, I know we dont need it down to 1/100th but it would have been nice to see a little tighter. May they need to be a little loose who knows.
