The car is relatively new, I'm sure the team drivers had a little more time on it, but I doubt they were ready.

I find that odd 2.
They will slap a new prototype tc car in a few select drivers hards to send them to a big race to wheel it . Lol
Guess they don't have that good of offroad drivers yet (tho I'm sure Paul will be a strong force real soon)

Hey,

can I use a SRG-BL (Sanwa low profile servo) in the XB4 or is that a bad idea?
I'm normally a TC driver so excuse the stupid question

Regards

I don't know the specs of the servo you wish to use, but in my XB4 I use a Futaba S9551 Digital Low Profile Servo without issue...

Thanks for the fast answer

My Servo is quite a bit faster than the S9551 but also has a bit less torque.
Should work then.

Did you encounter any problems on high grip surfaces like carpet?

I have never run the XB4 on carpet, but the S9551 is also the same servo I run in my touring car on carpet.

I run my Sanwa servos in my TC on carpet aswell.
Just thought that there might be more Torque needed when it comes to offroad racing.

I guess I'll give it a try and see how i like it

Question for you guys... What size lipos can I fit in this car? I noticed most lipos are about 25mm high but I was going to pick up a cheap gens ace pack for practice and it's 33mm high. Will this fit or is it too high like the B44?

If you do not put the foam in the tray, you can fit something thats 27mm high.

27mm chassis to hold-down bar, just put some spacers under the posts, not sure about the body fit over that I can't seem to find mine....

What dictates how you decide on what compound to run up front? I mean you could go super soft to get more steering, but why not make up for it with setup? Looking for how everyone decides on their front compound for 4wd.

Track surface and temps dictate what compound. Its easier to change tires to get more traction than it is to change setup to get more traction.

Locally we have an all clay 1/8 scale offroad track. 99% of the time we run SS compounds. Tire wear is minimal. You can easily go all year on a single set of tires in a 2wd as long as you aren't constantly spinning your tires.
