i have only boke one part which was totally my fault and it took some really bad crashes to break it. I was running on a 1/8th lay with a big triple that i came up short on a couple of times and it flipped it on the rear wing/shock tower and ended you breaking the rear diff case. i blame my self because it was only a matter of time before something broke hitting jumps that big but it was fun and i had the parts to fix it so it wasnt an issue at all.

You can just get white wheels and dye them black with rit dye from the craft store

Dying them last a long time if you do it right. The big brown truck just came by and gave me my new toy! The driver was a little freaked out when I asked her for a hug....

Started building my xb4 tonight. Everything is fantastic quality and fits perfect as every other x ray/ hudy product I've owned. Can't wait to get electronics on it! Bls551 or s9351?

just here to help.

BTW, if you want more rear stability (especially if you're coming from a 44.2) use the .5 shims facing to the OUTSIDE MIDDLE of the car on the front and rear of the gearbox.

Are you changing both front and rear eccentric bushings of each end of the car ? > (adding track width)
or are you changing the rear eccentric bushings only ? (adding toe)
FF and FR is the front.... RF and RR is the rear.... so all four need to be accounted for.

Asc,

I think he is saying to increase the rear end track width only, using the .5 bushings in the front and rear locations on the rear gearbox only.
