Offsets pretty close actually. I think the rears might be -1 compared to the xray wheels though. And yeah forgot to mention the drill part else it does not sit on the axle properly.

I ran my car for the first time today. Box stock setup and this was hands down, best car i have ever run. I am very pleased and am looking forward to running again.

I saw 2 guys burn up rear diffs in the car though. Is everyone running nt1 diffs or just the spyder gears?

I fried an original set in the rear months ago and replaced them with all metal gears. Checked and shimmed the front original gears and still run those. One tiny thing is the dimensions of the metal vs plastic gears and the v1/v2 bevel gear are a bit different but as long as you get rid of the slop it's all good.

I'm still rocking v1 composite gears in a 6.5T car. Shimmed properly it's fine...

Maybe I'm not aggressive enough on the brakes?

Same here and no issues at all with the composite gears, helps with the slipper set properly also

nuts? washers? don't see why not - it's just an M3. Heck, you could use those nice scalloped serpent 1/8th ones if you like

Cool,i will run mine with the stock gears for now and see how they hold up. I dont crash much and drive a smooth line so they should hold up. I love how smooth this car drives. It is glued to the track and very predictable. I just need to put o rings in the shock caps. Outside of that, bring on race day. Im ready to lay the smack down

I bought the XB4 for my 11year old son to drive and it's been running really good. He absolutely loves it. I tried running the slipper quite loose, but even with a 21.5 motor (we run 21.5 with boost and turbo as stock in NZ) he still managed to wreck the rear diff gears. After replacing the gears with steel ones, the buggy has been rock solid. The o-rings in the shock caps look to have fixed the leaks This buggy is just so nice and smooth to drive. Almost makes me want to run 4wd mod again

I am running the trackpower 6.5 and am eating up 1/8 e buggies on a large outdoor track. I am now going back to work on my e buggy setup to try to get it running more like the xb4. I need a softer setup in my e buggy i see.
