Ran my XB4 for the first time and really liked it. I decided to try an S-Workz molded wing and ordered a few more as I really like the look and quality of it. Much better than the lexan wings I normally run on my buggies.

I ended up bending my rear front hinge pin holder and breaking the inserts on one side. Front a-arm and hinge pin were ok. Bent the holder back and changed to the 1 inserts and was fine the rest of the day. Coming from a B44.2 with gear diffs it was familiar to drive.

I found the XB4 to jump a bit better and drive a bit smoother. It had less steering than I wanted, but for my first time out without any practice I was very close to my fastest lap with the B44.2. (15.1 with the B44.2 vs 15.4 with the XB4). With more tuning and driving I think it will end up being just as good.

This is the older model. I have the 2014 coming in hopefully this week.

I plan to keep this one as is, with the only change shortening all the wiring to just what I need it to be, plus a 1/4 of an inch or so. This will give it a much cleaner look.







Here's the track layout:

I'm running pretty much the kit setup. Car feels good just looking for a little more on power steering running 7-3 in the diffs. Where should I look to first without giving up rear traction

Lower the front roll center, use the arm bushings to move the front arms down. You can also go up in rear oil a tad, that should help as well, it won't be so quick to put all of it's weight on the outside rear tire.

If anyone has their car apart already, could you provide a measurement for me? I need the width of the gear diff assembly from the outer bearings, as well as the width of a diff case/bulkhead bottom. Thanks in advance!

FYI, if you are having problems with the pins coming out of the plastic pin holders, I have a solution...

TD parts are a direct fit. Set screws in bushing and flat spots on pin. cheap too.

TD310113 and TD310120

Maybe this was already covered... doesn't hurt to post again.
