A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Im still on the fence about which to get and really wanted to get the xb4. I was willing to deal with having to order everything I need online (i know thats not a big deal but I hate ordering online lol) but not that Im going to have to buy a center diff for im guessing around $50 and the kit is about $100 more than the b44.3 I think I might just get the 44.3 now, plus there are some really good sponsored drivers here for AE so setups and help will be abundant. I just really like the precision and quality of Xray dang it lol

Well, the '14 spec is $440 at A Main currently - I'm sure the '15 spec will be in the $470-$520 range.


...B44.3's are $380.

Well, yes the Xray car is expensive, however it really is worth it. I have had many of the newer cars (AE included), and wouldn't own anything else -especially the AE car. The B44 series of cars have quite possibly the worst plastics in the industry and you will quickly find yourself replacing most of the parts on a regular basis. If you don't the car becomes VERY inconsistent, and you will just be pulling your hair out (on the runs you finish LOL). In my AE car I replaced arms an average of every 5 runs or less between breaks and or warpage (oh yes, they warp horribly). I have had my 2013/14 for about 4 months and have only broken 1 part. I know allot of factory drivers for AE, and they say you can gat about 10-15 runs out of a new car, than you really should sell it. I just see most other cars requiring too much work, and nickle and dimeing you to death. Bite the bullet, and go for the XB4, you won't regret it.

I have to say the cars are expensive but they are tanks and can take abuse. Took almost a year and I chewed up my first diff in my 2014 last week. I think I'm going to just buy the complete diff rebuild kit, it's $63 but includes the out-drives which at this point need to be replaced as well.

I'm probably going to do what jpcopeland said and keep my 2014 until it's completely hammered then look at the 2015. Hopefully by then any issues that might be discovered with the 2015 will be addressed. I look at it like I do my job in IT, never roll out a new OS until at least the first service pack drops for it. Let someone else deal with the issues first.

I think the price will be $500 with the "2 in 1" option being advertised like it is.

+1
OS analogy is perfect. Just now getting around to loading 8.1 on my gaming box. Still sucks as an interface, but the underlying optimizations are good. Windows 10 from what I have seen and used is gonna be a beast of an OS. As long as they don't f***k it up.
