i was thinking about another set of shocks for rons when it gets cold out . i need to do fast changes to see if i can tell the difference when i saw the $160 price i gave up on that idea and though might as well get a whole nother kit .

we should meet one night and set up our cars different and see what the changes feel like.but you would have to put a 10.5 in yours

I'm racing tomorrow night at Ron's. I have 3 things I want to change with the electronics before I do anything else. If that doesn't help I'm going to play with the diff oils

Curious to know if anyone has tried to fit any other bodies? I know JC has one available specifically for the XB4 and of course the stocker...just not particularly liking either. Really interested in knowing of a any PL Bull Dog bodies fit?

Maybe bodies for the b44.2 would fit... Not sure just a guess.

Just traded one of my 44.2 with gear diff conversion and avid chassis for a new XB4 2014 and 2nd body. Can't wait! I also have an older XB4 on its way to me for an 1/8th scale I had. Looking forward to seeing how I like them.

I have to say that the best adjustment I've made so far w/this car is turning down my servo speed. Not sure if it's because i've been driving these rolly polly sct's or if this cars steering geometry is that much better but I put the rear hubs forward, 2mm shim back in under the r. diff and worked my way down to 50% servo speed on a .06, Car is planted and very easy to drive fast on a smooth/dry clay track.

I'm looking for some advice guys. Let's start off by saying this car ( 2013 xb4) is real good and consistent compared to many of the other 4wds if owned. I am currently running the Martin Bayer setup on high bite clay track. The only changes I have to the suspension are avid pistons (1.6front and rear) and associated green rear spring.
The complaint I have about this car is it jumps horrible. It is a constant situation of either having to bring the nose down in the air or gassing it to bring it up to level things out. Now before people jump on me and tell me how to drive\jump, I am not a rookie and my original racing roots are from 1\8th scale nitro which requires much more jumping ability and control in the air. I almost wonder if the strong points of this car driving a lot like a sedan which I believe is partly because of the lack of droop are its weakness when it comes to jumping and landing. The best way I can describe it is some cars are very "cat like", meaning they tend to want to level out and land nice on all fours. Has anyone else had this complaint that has found a way to make it jump better.
