I like running the AE 12mm springs blue front and green rears. I also run the Avid pistons 1.5x1.1 fr and 1.6x1.1 rr, AE 40 fr and 27.5 rr.

I can't say it enough tires and inserts open cell inserts do not last as long but plant the car I run super soft Ion's or dirt webs I use open cell on all 4 and if it's loose I have a set of fronts with AKA red inserts .It will free up the front just enough to keep the rear planted.. spend the extra money on tires rather than chasing setup

+1 tires are everything. I don't run any weight anywhere. And am still on the dirt setup since day one.

Default Traxxas off sets

What front wheel are you guys running if you use the traxxas off sets for the front. I know B44.2 are too small.. what about losi or kyosho?

So I've been going through my "new to me" 2014 XB4 and am cleaning/replacing things to get it as new as possible. I have the Sweep 10Droids coming along with some Dirtwebs and bought a few sets of the Xray 14mm wheels to mount them to. Hopefully those tires will work well on the hard pack indoor med grip I will eventually be running on?

I use 10Droids for med to high bite indoor clay and they work very well. I use the clay compound with sweeps orange foams. Sweeps makes excellent tires!

I switch to dirt webs when the track starts to dry out, using aka foams front and rear. Caribs hooked. Need to find a set of 10 droids. Want to try a different tire.

Threw that setup on my car for some practice laps last night and it's the best it has been.
