Default Difference between the BravoX and XR?

Can you tell by just looking at the drive the difference between an X and XR drive?

And in what year did the swept back style Bravo come out?

That is my concern, that someone could just change the stickers.

You can probably tell by the serial number.

Can you elaborate on that. What should the numbers be with an X or XR?

Spiral cut gear in the X and small prop shafts

Diamond cut and large prop shafts in the XR

Plus different cases and carriers and such. Basically lots of differences.

You can tell immediately by the prop shaft size.

The prop shaft is the give-away....however, somebody could have bolted an XR lower to an X upper and replaced the X sticker with XR stickers. Seems like a lot of work to go though...
