For those of you asking about the car at the worlds and upset the XRay team isn't there, Tyler Vik built an XB4 last night and seeded into the top 10 in practice for qualifying tomorrow. Not too bad for the first day with the car... He also made a new Facebook page which seems to be super popular!

I know fast lap isn't everything, but I was just looking at the results and the only guys I'm seeing that did a faster lap in round 10 was Ronnefalk and Joern.

I use an Associated b4.1 skid, I just mount it up on top of the existing front skid. it is very thin and adds some good cushion to the front block. For a buck fifty it works great!

I have not. I do plan on running one next year though as well as their bumper. Our off-road season just ended so no point in buying one until spring.

I'm looking for an alternative aluminium servo mount. Any ideas? I know that ZZracing has an aluminium one but looking for different options. Has anyone looked at the Avid universal mount?

Thanks for helping out!
