thanks

I might be mistaken but if not, this should help give others a better idea on how to help.

We've had great success running F:5 / R:3 on loose to medium tracks

On high grip tracks we've actually found it to perform better with front & rear diff weights very close (6/5)

Is this coming out of corners ?

We've been really pleased with running long camber links in the rear (outer hole on hub) and adding 0.5 of anti-squat.
You can also add some rear toe (going out on the RR holder).

On tight tracks we have then used the inner lower roll center on the hubs to get some rotation back

Back from our first try with the XB4

here is the track (the pic is from last year)



here is the car






and I have to say... I LOVE this buggy. Very natural feeling, good balance, great steering, neutral on jumps, easy to drive. Overall I've nothing negative to say about its handling, ii is VERY good. I didn't have the good tires with me because the track was wet but I can't imagine it being even better on the dry, I'm really impressed.

Bent- yes, I feel it mostly coming out of corners. I will test the longer camber links and anti squat. thanks

Any word on release? I hear xray is quick with release once a product is announced. When should I plan to see this? Is there a typical xray timeline?

Ride height on dirt should be more around the 20mm. What are you running for shock oil. The suspension holders aka "hangers" will get scuffed.

That's nice that the a main winner liked your car but what did you need more from it?

Anyone know a US store that has 365114 (bevel gear) in stock? First weekend on the XB4 and slipper was too loose at first then apparently too tight. Was super awesome even after it lost a few teeth!

Also does someone have a pic of both (V1 and V2) 35T Bevel gears side by side?

Hi, may be this can sound silly, but while i was doing the shock i noticed that the progressive spring got more coils on one side than the other side.More coil=softer and less coils=harder. Is that right?. If that is right more coils on top and less on the bottom of the shock.
Could anyone please tell me if i am wrong or right?

Thank you

It doesn't matter which way you orientate the spring.
The spring will compress just the same either way

I usually have them mounted with the markings on the spring facing up to be able to identify them quicker
