Hi Guys,

What are the key differences between the 2013 & 2014 versions of the XB4 & what do they do? I have a 2013 version and want to undate it.

Looks like i have some new parts to buy. The cut off rear chassis really works, i did that to mine 2 months ago and love it on low to medium bite. Car has a ton of rear bite. I honestly can say, this car is a bulletproof car already, with all of these reinforcments, this car will survive a nuclear attack

Did you cut the chassis and remove plastic or just cut for flex? Looking for just a little more rear grip. Can you post a pic? Also did you change suspension bushings?

Is there an easy way to identify if a front wheel is the new 2014 part or not? Just thinking about wheels getting mixed up when I recycle them.

I removed it. I kept the part i cut off for high grip. I had to mill off the bottom of the rear pin holder where it locks around the chassis as it protrudes out of the bottom. I took it down 2mm. Arm bushings are the same. All i wanted to change was lowering the hinge pins.

The outside dish part of the rim is concave and convex. Its only slight but you can pick it. Not 100% which way around it is too cause I am not looking at a rim at the moment.
