Thanks

I do try to stay on point and cut through all the drama.......which might come across as harsh or arrogant.
But it easily ends up that way when you have to compete with hearsay from the cousin of a brothers neighbor who races with a friend that knows a guy who wished he had a XB4

The thousands of racers that race the XB4 on a regular basis with great success will however appreciate input based on actual racing experience
That's easily recognized by the tons of PM's I get

Yes sir...that's why I bought two cars, unfortunately local hobby shops don't tend to carry and stock xray cars and parts like they do losi and associated. at least no shop I have found.

It may be user error but even the biggest online shop doesnt have them in stock
We should all start investing in xray stock as shares will rise on ring gears alone

Can anyone post some pics of the new XB4 with the center diff I keep hearing about ? I know it hasn't been released for purchase yet, but I figured there be some pics somewhere. Been searching, can't find any.

Thanks,

Yup.. Both gears are out now.. The only way I see to get them is if you buy the whole assembly for 64 buckk.. and that does not included the pinion, from what I can see..

We made my diff tighter a few weeks ago trying to make the triple, 3 diffs later I will be going back to the way it was. Now they did have some wear already.

Thanks asc6000.

For some reason I thought it would have a shorty pack version. No ?

I haven't seen one. Try surfing some euro forums like oople or petitrc.

Only for saddle packs so far.

Malin ran the center diff again this weekend on high grip astro at the Swedish National Championship.

Worked really good with 8000 cst front & rear with 1.000.000 cst in the center
