Ok. Build is going pretty good. Did your bodies come with window masks or did you have to make them yourselves?

Neither the serpent nor xb4 will be ready for shakedown runs until at least Wednesday. I would so be there though if I could.

Sounds like we have a few xb4 at LRH. Please share set up once you guys are dialed. I know Kellen shared some a few posts back. But would like to hear more details if possible. Thanks.

I moved the rear hubs forward and it was better. I think the car would be dialed with a ball diff in the rear.

Can someone give me the part number for the plastic hexes made by traxxas that fits the xb4?

I kind of felt that way last night while I was building it. Now focusing on the Serpent. Would like to try and get some shakedown runs in today at LRH with it.

I did the same thing, I run on an indoor hard packed dirt track with medium traction. Moving them forward seemed to settle the rear end down coming out of corners.
