I just used M3 x 33mm button heads locked down with a washer and lock nut, the thumb nuts are from Tresrey and are ment for the DEX210
I use them in the rb6 as well. Matches the red hobbywing and tekin motors . Nice job

IS there a XB4 setup book from Xray or Hudy specific to the XB4? The manual alludes to downloading it from hudy but all i see is the 1/8th scale book.

IF it exists could someone post the link here for me? Thanks

XRAY racers can now run the signature AVID machined piston setup on the XB4 buggy. The AV1033 pistons are custom machined for XB4 shocks to tune high speed and low speed damping separately with 2 large 1.5mm (or 1.6mm) holes and 2 small 1.1mm holes (we call it the 2+2 piston). AVIDís test drivers found that these pistons help provide the traction and bump handling of running lighter shock oil or larger piston holes, while still maintaining the control of running heavier oil or smaller hole piston when taking on jumps.

Piston Features:
* Fits XRAY XB4 shocks
* Machined perfectly round with a tighter fit to bore of shock body for less blow-by
AV1031 pistons with 2+2 valving offer increased traction without sacrificing jump handling or driveability.
* Each package includes 4 pistons inside of a Doodad container printed with AVID logo.
