Strengths: First and almost the most important: Looks! This frontblock looks N I C E. I've seen the black one too and it looks decent. Now I'll go through each part included, the 3-way, the ram, and the low pressure regulator.

Now for the bad news, the 3-way I got S U C K E D. It wouldn't stop leaking and I had 3 different professionals look at it, one of them being Mike D from the California System X warehouse. However, it seems that mine was simply defective and they did offer to send me another one free of charge which is nice. Excluding this upsetting fact that I got such a bad 3-way, it was super short, super smooth, and really easy to time (even I couldn't screw this one up)

Don't fear though it gets better from here! The low pressure regulator is great. The adjustment on it is really simple, I love the thumb screw which makes it really simple to sweet spot. The system x logo on the front knob looks totally awsome too.

Now the ram is only satisfactory. Most people say - "A ram is a ram." And I now believe that more than I used to. This ram seems technically identical to the stock one. However, mine hasn't been oiled very much which would explain why its not as smooth as I would like. But through use it should change.

Another good point? The people at System X have wonderful support and are trying to help me to be satisfied with my purchase. Thanks System X!
Weaknesses: The good, the bad, and the ugly:

1) The 3-way I got was defective
2) The ram isn't very smooth out of the box
Conclusion: I love the 3-way but mine was defective and I cant wait for one to arrive in the mail 3 weeks later.

The low pressure regulator rocks.

The ram is satisfactory.

So here's the scoring:

+2 for awsome looks
-4 for the defective 3-way
-3 for unsmooth ram
+2 for excellent technical support

Total: 7/10
Rating:
7 out of 10
