I just updated out website and all the Spec R parts should be listed under the "XB4 Replacement Parts" section.

There's also a super trick wing mount they make. That and the driveshafts are probably the only things they have that are functional improvements. The other stuff is more just for long term durability, like the drive shaft covers.

Just want to share a few photos. Finished this up yesterday. I threw in a motor and electronics I have lay around. Since this is my son's car, I'm not ready for new equipment just yet.
Kit came together nicely, no issue with the kit at all. Spent more time sorting out the wiring than building the car. I mean, try to figure out do I go over the top of the brace or under Can't wait to hit the track and test this baby out.
Thanks for looking.

Ran my buggy for the third time yesterday. My Gawd its quick ! I could probably do a faster lap in my Dex , but I can stay so much more consistant with this buggy. I did break the top off the front bulkhead flipping at the end of the straight ( had help) , but i read that thats what happens with thicker towers. But I think I would rather break a 20 bulkhead instead of a 38 dollar shock tower . My buggy was packing up on the bumps on the front straight though , so bad the rear tires would come off the ground. I have the kit set up on it and will make the switch to the 2 hole pistons . Other than that , what a blast ... My track was a hack fest yesterday full of Sc trucks , and 3s slash drivers . My buggy got raped more then a few times , hacked at least once a lap it seemed . Only breaking the bulkhead was a testiment to reliability let me tell ya

Put the receiver in front of the motor and you could get it in there no problems. Should be strong with that combo in it ...

Anyone know when the 2014 xb4 front arms will be available? Cant find them anywhere, I haven't broken an arm (knock on wood) but if I do I'd rather not be left without a replacement.

I just bought a used one on here, on the way.
I have an extra rx8 but no wheeler esc or motor, i have an rs gen 1 and a 8.5 revtech in my 22 i was thinking about using but hear it may blow the rs up hence the reason for the rx8 n pro 4 or a sc4x 5.5 lol
Oops cant use pro 4 if the shaft is too big .

Anyone else have there car feel like the rear over rotates? I had the v2 and loved it so I got the 14 put same set up and my rear end feels like it breaks loose and over rotates the front. Exiting corners and it will loose traction so much I have to let it stabilize before I can get back into it.

Had the same issue. I am running the clay setup with inner rear links raised inboard and i am running them long also, trying to calm down the rear end on power.

Best thing i did was put 42 grams of weight on the rear of my lipo packs and now she is planted.

Eric, have you checked RCMadness in Enfield? He should have some.

My car is bordering that very same issue. By that I mean, if I clamp REAL hard on throttle, it will come around, if I roll ever so slightly for a split second, then clamp it, it'll rocket out of the turn. I'm actually very happy with mine right now and don't really want to change it.

Is someone making 12mm hex so we can use our other rims or is it going to be just the 14mm?

Sounds like a setup issue to me. I run the same Bayer setup from sticky clay to laomy dirt.. only thing different is 5/3 in the diff

If your 14 has the exact same setup as the 13 but having issues something might be fouled up. Check bearings, pins, diff.. something might be binding up

I know you require 4 screws to mount the motor. 2 to mount the mount mount and 2 to set the mesh. What type of screws are these? Are all 4 the same? What the length? Thanks
