They come as set of 2 (Left + Right) for either front or rear.

Same as for the T4 and XB9(E)

Hi everybody

I am new in this forum as I am also new for xray and 4wd . I recently bought the new xb4 2014 and I have a question that any of you may help me to solve.

I have been reading a lot about the importance of the slipper clutch setting. As I am going to be using my car in high byte tracks (carpet), I think that the slipper clutch setting is critical to do not damage the drivetrain.

I have experience in setting slipper in 2wd, but I have never done it in a 4wd, so if someone can explain me step by step how to do it, I would really appreciate it. By setting I mean how to adjust the slipper clutch depending on the track surface and characteristics. I have already read the manual and I know the recommended range (5,7 mm- 6,3 mm), but I assume that this range is illustrative/guide and I need to fine tune the slipper clutch on the track. This fine tune setting is what I am asking for.

I also take the chance to ask for the optional diff gears. I am going to buy some spares, which include the diff gear (as I am going to be driving on carpet, I think is good to have a replacement for them). So I was wondering if it would make sense to buy the optional gears (graphite or metal) instead of the composite ones, as spare. Which are the pros and cons of graphite and metal gears vs composite? Does someone have experience with them?

Thank you very much and really looking forward for your responses.

Default running xb4 with 17.5 blinky gearing help

Hi, I have an xb4 that I've raced once at my club with a 10.5 turn motor. I don't race there anymore due to certain reasons, and a couple of my fiends want me to race 17.5 stock with them in Sydney.

Here is my problem: I'm running a speed passion reventon S with a speed passion 17.5 motor. I have a 30t pinion and a modified AE 75t spur, and I have the timing up as far as it will go and its still slow.

Any ideas how I can get more speed out of the sucker?

If you can please PM me.

Thanks.

I would go back to stock gearing and adjust timing and boost from there.

If your motor temps are ok, then bigger pinon and/or smaller spur is the only answer to your question.

Or you could throw some monster truck tires on it.....

I think no matter what you do, coming from running a modified motor, the 17.5 is gonna seem real slow. 17.5 feels slow to me in a 2wd buggy. I can imagine running it in 4wd unless the track is tiny.

go down to a 69T spur. I ran 30/69 @ 40 deg motor timing on a reedy m2/viper vtx10.

I'm looking to purchase the 2014 version, should I upgrade the diff gears to steel? Also has anyone got the 14 yet? Looking to see what they think

Your challenge will be learning how to tune the diffs. A completely different game than 2wd. The slipper setting is easy by comparison, start with the 6.3 and go from there. The only real caution being to not have it too tight to start.

Stiffening plates, increase rigidity which should reduce traction, used on very high bite tracks only.
