    they all break, usually near the drop out, even xc racers break them.

    The 05 is worth the upgrade, they redesigned the chainstays to solve the breaking issues. I am an ex-expert DH racer that uses my XLT for XC/Trail riding and have had no problems, and I have rode it pretty hard.

    Yeh you can put an 05 chainstay on an 04, they have done another redesign for 06 but im not sure about the compatability of it.
