970120 doesn't come up anywhere as an o-ring

Default Receiver too large to fit in provided space.

I was wondering if anyone else has ran into this problem and what they did as an alternative. I have an XB4 with a Futaba R2104GF receiver. The receiver is too large to fit into the space provided due to the battery wire retainer posts. Anyone else run into this problem? If so, where did you end up mounting the receiver? Thanks!

I got a solder iron with a wide flat chisel tip and melted the molded wire retainer out of the bottom so u could arrange my electronics better it worked great

Thanks! Any chance you guys have pics of your wiring configuration. trying to make it as tidy/clean as possible... I have an Team Orion RX10Pro, but it looks as though I'm going to have to bypass the wire retainer because they seem to be in the way of driveline components due to the configuration of the Orion ESC. Any pics or tips would be greatly appreciated

There are many Orion escs in those pictures.

You can also have more space by removing the plastic cover around the capacitors and shrink wrapping them after that.

You can re-solder your wires so that the wires go down from the esc. That way you can use the wire retainer more easily.

Tell me one thing.

Is a 1:10 http://www.yeahracing.com/catalog/ye...ad-p-3152.html setup system adoptable to 1:10 offroad, by modification?

Adoptable to use with xb4 ofc.

Maybe HUDY setup is from off to onroad or vice versa

Both of those are for 1/10th using 5mm axles, the hole in the side plate determines the maximum axle size.
Smaller axles can be used with spacers/etc.

My XB4 in action at my local indoor club:

I'm the blue/green car, all the others are B44.1/B44.2.

Also this earlier final running with 2wd cars, as I was running my Bmax2 in qualifying that night, but ran my XB4 in the final and got a bump up to the A.

This super slippy rubber floor has been causing me some issues with the rear rotation, but think I have it dialled now. Using the new Ralls Racing rear tower, with extra wide camber link holes, which really helps with the camber change as the car rolls. Rear grip is far more than with the stock tower.

I've also added 40g weight under each lipo.
