I have the aluminum caps the day they came out with v1 kit. Never leaked. o rings lasted me a whole season as well until the shocks got squeaky last week and I swapped them out.

Also the wide front hexs in the front and Kyosho front wheels.
Been running this for a while now. Just buy extras, because the plastic wears down over time.

Where can I buy one in US? I've look at the typical big vendors, wondering if I've missed any others. Thanks.
NVM, just found one. I'm excited!

For the xb4 2014 guys, has the drivetrain improved? How has the reliability been with the updates? Can it run with extra tight slipper without stripping now?

The 14 is the same as the 13... you need to adjust the slipper

Those are nice . I already have the Exotek version so I'm good. If you're running the stock plastic collars I'd suggest upgrading to aluminum for peace of mind.

Slipper settings are still critical but that's with any car. You can't just crank em down that will not yield the best results.

Steel diff gears and a center diff would be better!
