I pulled the shim out of mine last night. Still running the std hanger, just sanded the "fangs" smooth with the chassis.

Didn't get to run it too much, though. Track was hectic last night. Be nice when the holiday break is over.

Check that your shocks are all equalized. My car was straight as an arrow on power until my last run- found that the front shocks sucked in a little air over time and had uneven rebound.
You also might try shortening wheel base, go up 1k heavier rear diff oil, 1 step more rear toe, remove the rear sway bar or move rear shocks lower inner holes and front shocks lower outer hole.

Much kudos to the Xray team on the XB4- such an easy to drive fast, durable buggy and so easy to work on too

So.. If I remove the plastic between the chassis and rear diff... and file down the stock rear hangers it will increase the rear traction? Does anything else need to be done?

just found this on xray's FB page for those that have ?'s on what the hangers and 2mm shim do,

Xray Racing Cars
December 20
#363313 Brass Rear Lower Suspension Holders +2mm

• Brass lower suspension holders
• Additional weight
• Lowered CG
• Improved traction
• Increased stability
• I.S.S.™
• Quick & easy geometry setting
• CNC-machined

Optional brass lower suspension holders for XB4 cars provide additional weight down low to improve traction and stability while lowering the car’s CG. The suspension holders feature Integrated Suspension Settings™ (I.S.S.) which allows for quick & easy suspension geometry setting. This XRAY concept was first introduced in the original XB8 and now has been carried over to the 1/10 scale XB4. The holders are +2mm and fit both XB4 & XB4 2WD. Set of 2 pieces.

XB4 suspension geometry can be completely adjusted using eccentric suspension bushings inserted into suspension blocks, as well as using additional suspension shims.

In the XB4 2WD, the suspension holder is used without the rear lower composite chassis plate and is mounted directly to the aluminum chassis.

On the XB4, the suspension holder can be mounted in two different ways:

1. Mounted on the rear lower composite chassis plate which increases roll center by +2mm. This improves the rotation of the car in corners.

2. Without the rear lower composite chassis plate, mounted directly on the aluminum chassis. This is recommended for low-traction tracks. — with Bruno Coelho and 12 others.

The axle stub is shorter on the 14
