Thanks for the kind words. I really do enjoy it. When you get old, remote control hobbies is all an old body can take.

Back to the XB4

Default Jconcept XRAY B4 body

Hello guys, hope everyone is having a good weekend. I just wanted to show off my new Jconcept body. I'm really pleased I bought this body. It was easy to cut out, and the mounting holes were dead on. It also seams very durable. Best of all It makes my car look fast.

I just like driving but I am too old to get much better as a driver.

That is awesome. Props to you. I love driving them too, but I don't get 20 packs a year....lol. 2 kids under 3 right now. Used to burn about 8 gallons a summer of nitro, but those days are long gone.

Default Xray Xb4 2 wheel drive

What do you guys know about the 2 wheel drive Xray? It looks like they just left the front drive parts out. Any thoughts or opinions?

Needing some setup help please. I have the 2013 base setup for clay and the car feels really loose in the rear end. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for the rear hinge pin bushing setups. Right now it's currently in the middle on both the fr and rr. Every setup sheet I look at it has them way different so I was looking for some advice.

Move your shocks in on the tower and arm if you're still running the stock springs. Or go to the 1 dot rear springs. You can also put some weight under the battery packs. If it's when you first get on the throttle, the new slipper pads will help a lot.

This is what I did with good results. I put the front hinge pins in the upper outside holes in the pills and lower outside holes in the rear. Added 1.5 grams of weight to the rear of the batteries. Rear inside camber link in the lowest position and raised the front one hole up. 1-dot spring in the rear, stock in the front. Two hole pistons all the way around, set oil to your track.
