thanks! unfortunately exotekracing had an estimated $23 in shipping costs to norway, so I'm afraid that's out of the question

Find someone in the neighborhood, or go to machine shop and make them yourself (use aluminum round bar). We've done it that way since the beginning. We've made collars that slip just over the original ones, a little bit of ca and that's it.

Well, you know a car is good when other cars come out that look really similar. This seems like Yokomo's take on the XB4. Not a copy, but the geometry and layout looks really similar.

Another new Yokomo?
If it is it would just be an update of the B-Max 4 as it is pretty much identical to the B-Max 4. Thac buggy hasn't even been out for too long, so I would not think it is their "take" on the XB4 as it was out before the XB4. Just sayin.
But it is a nice clean layout, why do ya think they all look earily alike in ways, B44, XB4, B-Max?

For the pin problem, use thick schrink tape, like you use in wires when soldering batteries. Sorry but i do not know the english Word for it.

Need to put my .2 cents in again but this car rocks. I'm using the Martin Bayer European set up on a loamy soft dirt track and it rocks! Only thing I changed was the front diff to 5k. Tons of on and off power steering. The only thing holding me back is my experience compared to 4wd veterans.. but I'm catching up every week.

Ps- the car is a tank.. I bought it used and after 2 months of racing I finally cracked a v1 front bulk head.. and while screwing around after racing I chewed up a bevel gear

Is this a normal piece that goes out every now and then?

Anyone know how you can tell the difference between the V1 and V2 bevel gears?

If you're talking about the large bevel gear on the outside of the diff then it has the molded in number 35 which is the number of teeth, the V1 gear didn't have that. If you're talking about the small gears inside the diff then they have a different part number for the harder material.

Cheers,

Mike.

If I were to buy a kit is it upgraded or would I have to update/upgrade it out of the box?
Are the gears already updated and the towers, and gear boxes?

I had a b44, then the .1 and then the .2 before the Xray. you won't be disappointed. when you build the kit you will know you made a good choice. When you drive it you will surely know. Loose dirt or super grip carpet track and everything in between, the car is incredibly easy to drive fast and is very forgiving. small changes to the stock setup are all that's needed to dial it in and be competitive on a number of tracks.
