Anyone running aluminum servo arms? I stripped the plastic one yesterday and wondering which aluminum one fits best?
Thanks!

Is that for the touring chassis? How did you get it to clear, space seems tight there!

Hey guys, I was thinking of picking up an XB4 and had a few quick noob questions. I will be running on a indoor clay track with some tight turns and good traction and wanted to know if the kit set up was a good place to start or if you guys found a better setup.

I was planning on running the the avid 2+2 pistons based on Aloksatoor recommendation. But I wasn't sure if there were any other hop up/tuning options I should consider.

Also, does anyone have a lead on a used one? I checked the classifieds and only saw one.

Thanks! I am assuming you put solid aluminum TC steering arms instead of the stock plastic servo saver arms from the xb4?

Sorry guys I thought I had put it on but I never did. I'll see if it will indeed fit.

I'm running a Speed Passion Reventon Pro in my XB4 and a Speed Passion LPF 2.1 in my 2wd car. I've never had an issue with either of these controllers. Or, for that fact any of my previous Speed Passion ESCs. They are fast, smooth, easy to make set up changes, and are relatively inexpensive.
