Thanks! I'll have to pass on the sweet offer though. I'm getting ready to assemble the diffs here in a few minutes.



I noticed you guys were talking about wings. I was wanting a molded heavier grade wing but there doesn't seem to be any out there. I was told because they would be too heavy. I wonder why they don't make them anyway. Too hard on the car/towers in a crash?

There is nothing wrong with the wing that comes with them unless you spend a lot of time upside down.

It's doing one of two things. Its bottoming out hard and bouncing off the track, in which case you need thicker oil or smaller holes. Or it is over dampened and isn't soft enough to absorb the landing. I would guess it is under dampened and needs smaller holes.

I run on a hard packed clay outdoor and am running pretty close to the clay setup. I'm running 3 hole 1.3's al around with 40f/35r.

I'm running that combo right now and it seems pretty good.

Good to know. I am running 10k front and 5k rear and it is pretty good but seems to be a little irratic. I was thinking of trying the forward holes on the steering rack but im not sure if that will mellow it out too much. The steering rack is a quicker change but i dont want be changing diff oils at the track. Thanks for your input. I am leaning towards the oil change

Jason....

Seth from Superior was recommending running 7/3 and also running the avid piston with the Avid shock setup which is.

Use 1.5+1.1 piston in XB4 Front. Start with 35 wt Associated oil (425 cSt). For XRAY oils, use 450 cSt.
Use 1.6+1.1 piston in XB4 Rear. Start with 30 wt Associated oil (350 cSt). For XRAY oils, use 350 cSt.


From Avid:
XRAY racers can now run the signature AVID setup on the XB4 buggy. The AV1033 pistons are custom machined from XRAY 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). AVID's 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.



http://www.avidrc.com/company/news/1...Available.html

I changed out my pistons trackside on Saturday and ran the 35/30 AE oil and I could tell a big difference.

I'm still running 10/5 but I will be changing that out when Superior hobbies restocks on diff fluid sometime this week.

I also purchased the JC 6.5 high down force wing and wanted to try that out.
But changing the pistons and diff fluid should help a lot bro...

I found that 1.3-3 hole with 32.5 and 22.5 rear seams to be a good mix. I'm experimenting with different combos right now

if your track is med/low in traction or bumpy drop it all the way to 5/3, really mellow

The protector needs to face you in the front tower. Looks ugly but works. Else you will have wear and potential delamination on the front tower.

Yeah, I have my M2C bra on my Mugen reversed as well. I just don't like the ugliness in front. If the towers get beaten up... I'll just replace em.

I sanded and then painted my braces flat black - hides them well!

New buggy, old school paint scheme.

Yeah, man. I was actually thinking about doing that myself. Still keeping them on the backside though. Have a shot from the front?
