The stock servo horn is almost exactly the same size as the Racers Edge 1/8 servo horns. That's what I've used in my buggy for a while now.

First race meeting with the Xray XB4 tomorrow.

Been back racing now for a year and a half after a 20 year layoff. Been racing a Caster S10B with OK results and will now be fascinated to see how they compare!

Indoor mixed wooden floor and carpet.

Here we go!

The car went well. Had a rear end shunt during practice that mangled the RR rear hanger, Took it off and mangled it back into shape. It wasn't perfect, but it lasted the day OK.

Apart from that the car ran sweet. Qualified 10th and finished 9th overall. Big improvement over my last outing!

Promising!

Hoping the place I want to order the kit from has it back in stock next week. I should have the extra cash by then.

Kellen and I are hitting up LRH tomorrow (Tuesday) for all all nighter. Come meet up!

Mine got plowed by a losi 8ight 2.0 saturday night and landed back on its wheels like a cat! Mashed on it and the mmp with a speed passion 6.5t ran right back over the e buggy never missing a beat!

Tough doesn't even begin to describe the xb4!

I managed to snap a rear outer hinge pin in half after landing awkwardly off a double. But i did tq the first round of qualifying by a whole lap over a b44 and a lot of 22-4s.
