I finally got my XB4 out on the track and I was surprised at this car how it loves to be pushed hard.
The only thing I found was the rear was a little loose so I might go to 7K rear diff oil to see if that helps could be part of my driving skill or lack of

But overall the car is awesome

What would the second position on the Ackermann do in comparison to the first?

In Sweden we drive whit slicks tires on carpet, which works very well.

Looks like this:

Yes, we use additive like the touring cars.
The tires are controltires for the Indoor winter Cup we race in, 4WD and 2WD

Here's the 3rd and final leg of the A-finals.

She got a 5th in this last leg and took a 5th combined after 3 finals were run after placing 4,5 and 5

She lost out to 4th place by just 6/10 of a second after getting passed on the finish line in leg #2 of the finals.

Here's the final ranking list after the 3 finals.

Besides the electronics the kit is race ready from the box setup. The metal gears are for those that want some ease of mind with their diffs. I've had my rear diff blow out, but it was also leaking and my slipper set too tight. Other than that my rebuilt rear diff doesn't leak anymore and I have had complete success with it for now.

Just make sure to follow all of the preparation steps when building the kit and build your diffs right. I also did the cvd mod with the axial parts.

What is the cvd mod and why you do it? I like piece of mind so I need to find the metal gears

There have been a few instances where the pin from the driveshaft had worked it's way through the plastic shield and started tearing through the a arm. According to xray it happens when you don't apply enough of the graphite grease to the joints. I used Axial part #AXI30462 to provide extra protection.

If your kit doesn't come with the upgraded bulkhead make sure you get the free upgrade kit from wherever you bought it from.

It's built like a tank now and can really take a beating

She just loves her XB4

Here's a crude cell phone pic of the rear brace made out of a piece of 90 degree aluminum angle:



The upper holes are drilled through to use a nut on the back side while the lowers are drilled and tapped for the 3mm hardware.

I'll see if I have a pic of the front brace as well............
