Went to the track for some test and tune yesterday and made some big improvements. Indoor clay, was dry and slick low to med bite gold barcodes. Car was a handful with stock setup, way too much steering and not enough forward bite. Added 1g weights to rear corners of chassis, changed to 1 dot rears, and put the Savoya setup on the arm mount pills. Car was dialed. Super predictable and easy to drive. Was able to get on throttle coming out of turns and rear end didn't spin out. I let one of our more experienced 4wheel buggy guys drive it and he didn't want to give it back. Said it was the best wheeler he's driven and is going to buy one.

Cool - thanks!

Have you guys seen the new Spec R parts made for the XB4?

Some nice bling - machined knuckles, rear hubs, CVD cups and wing mounts, but hey, check out those aluminum bleeder caps and front double jointed universals!
