2 wing mounts
1 rear hub ripped the ball stud out
1 rear axle snapped mighty hard hit
1 front shock tower cracked not broken
1 ball cup from rear turnbuckle

Got it 1 week after it was released as well so not bad

What spur gear are you guys modifying when running a 17.5T?

Wing mounts
1 front hub carrier
1 front bulk head
1 servo holder arm
1 Front/Front hinge pin holder
1 bumper

ALL of the broken parts were my fault. The last three happened when I SMASHED a metal pole going WOT. XB4 is amazing and I never have concerns about durability.

Any one got a set of ADS pistons in their cars yet? Curious to know how it works in a 1/10 scaler

I'm running a 75t AE spur with 34 pinion but will be changing to a 72t soon as I can't lower the FDR any further with that combo.

Xray support post about XB4 new Outdrives :

"Yes, the updated outdrives are already included in the last kits, they are also already available for purchase under V2."

I've only broken a few ball cups off bad landings. The rest of the plastics are all original, and not much more slop than when I built it (right when the car was released). Pretty awesome considering 4x buggy is know for breaking all the time, also amazing is how little slop the car has developed over time.

Looking for some clarification regarding the eccentric bushings....

From looking at the charts am i correct in my thinking that not all combinations are possible.. Could you folks confirm my thinking with some of my observations below?

For instance:
1) Only 2 degrees of anti squat will allow you to be able to change to all 3 different roll center positions. (You cannot have 1,3 or 4 degrees of anti squat and have roll center options its fixed)

2) Similarly only 3 degrees of rear toe will allow u to be able to change to all 3 track width options. (you cannot have 1,2,4 or 5 degrees of rear toe and have track width changes)

3)A rear toe setting of 5 degrees has a fixed track width of 0mm
4)A rear toe setting of 4 degrees has 2 track width options of +.75mm or -.75mm

In other words outside of 2 degree anti squat and 3 degrees of rear toe, you can not get all tuning options for roll center and track width.



I think i have it down but after trying to explain it at the track the other night lol i had started to question if i was right. The table is a bit of a mind F%@# when you pull it out fast and try to explain it between a qualifier


I think i have clarified this for my self after typing this all out but ill post anyway incase anyone else is overwhelmed at looking at the chart

There are 3 kinds in the kit, hole in the middle(zero's), hole halfway(.5), hole at the edge(1.0). The little jumble of black dots shows 17 positions and 8 "open" spots. I have not tried them all and now you have me wondering. You can't use the .5 in the open spots ? hmmm, If they didn't show it in the manual is it even possible ?
