I spent all day at my local indoor track. WHAT A FANTASTIC CAR!!

My personal best laptime at this track was 17.003 before today, but that was smashed on the first battery pack... I had a lot of 16 second laps and ended up with 16.553 as my personal best.

Me and a friend have been using worn out AKA tires in soft compound, because we have just been competing between ourselves and like the way they feel, more like racing outside on dirt, without the insane grip from minipins on carpet.

But I could not resist it and mounted on a set of Schumacher minipin yellow compound. Had to cut three rows of the front tires to not traction rolling every second corner. And suddenly I was in the 15 second zone

The fastest lap recorded on this track this season was 15.8, and I ended up with a quickest lap of the day of 15.851

One of our big talent young guns was at the track today also, and he tried my car. On the third lap he broke the old track record, and within the 5-6 minutes he drove the car he sat a new track record of 15.4!! He didnt manage something even close with his own car afterwards....

This is beyond all my expectations

Rc America must be too busy getting kits re-distributed to post any updates just yet.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried to see if they can fit a 12mm hex hub and run Kyosho wheels? (on the rears)

What I'm really getting at is because I have an RB5. Would be nice if I can at least use the rears if they would be the same offset/track width to save some cost on tires. The XB4 looks like an excellent design and I don't think I would go for the Kyosho ZX-5 FS2.

I'd imagine we will just have to figure out which 12mm hexs to use and any 12mm buggy rear wheel will fit on. With my Durango I just put on b4 rear hexs and the spacing was right on.

I'm hoping thats the case and if the offsets will be correct, then all the more reason to get an XB4.

Would like to figure out some gearing.
