You could cut up the current top deck once the full length one arrives.

[QUOTE=MaricopaAgent;13524828]So I tackled the shorty swap today.. Few pics. I have not driven it yet, will do wed night.








Okay I can see on my phone that you have to take some plastic off so the center spur fits but I am unclear about the holes. is it just turn around and bolt on or do you gotta drill a extra hole in the metal part of the chassis?

Updated my shorty post.

Yes, you drill new mounting holes for the slipper/motor mounts.

and the upper deck will be my battery tie down. I just didnt want to cut the part, as it is spendy.

Xray announced the 2014 version last year on October 13th (RedRC), so hopefully in the next 4 weeks we'll know what we're driving next summer - soon!

i don't think the team drivers are testing any buggy with shorty configuration. I don't think there will be one but who knows

your are probably right. And that alone will prevent me from getting this car. I have no desire to mod my car like Tony did.

Hey folks, just wondering what you're setting your front and rear camber at? Also, what is a good toe setting for the front? Thanks! Bruce

I was wondering is someone drives a VIPER is his XB4? Any setup on the ESC with the XB4? Was wondering how you guys set yours up like punch, deadband,...

So I had my XB4 on the drivers stand wall next to a HB D413 and noticed the D413 has a bit more suspension travel than the XB4. My question is, has anyone ever experimented with different shock shafts or shocks to increase suspension travel? My other thought is to not thread the eyelet in all the way to gain a slight bit of travel might be helpful to get more travel (helpful on the current indoor track configuration I run on).

Thanks,

Thanks,
Extra droop can easily be added by just unscrewing the shock rod ends (as well as removing limiters inside the shocks).

We do this from time to time on certain low traction tracks

Adding droop will result in more weight transferring when entering and exiting corners.

It will generally be less stable but will give you more traction on corner exit (more front droop) and more turn-in on corner entry (more rear droop).
