For those not looking to immediately jump to the 15, I have a 2014 that I think I put 3 full race days on I'm looking to sell. Has about $200+ in spare parts. Asking $275.00 for everything roller, spares, and clay tires.

I haven't test-mounted it yet, but the bulk head of the '15 and '14 has the same part no, so it should be completely interchangeable. If you order the steel version of the bevel gear, don't forget to order the bushing for the bevel gear as well, part no 364990.

I think Im going to stick with the ae springs since I have every spring they make . However Im running indoor carpet track and going to be running a 6.5T motor any suggestions on where to start with pinion gears ? Running the stock 81T spur .

Also I wouldn't mind to hear some feedback on what you guys think would be better for a tight indoor carpet track with medium traction saddle or shorty ? Im almost leaning towards the saddle setup at this point since there is so much setups and info on running it saddle from previous xb4's .

Any input would be awesome

Thanks

Depending on the track size but anywhere from an 18 to 21 for pinion.

You may have answered you own question about running saddle packs. But I'd try the shorty set up and then you tell us what it was like! That's the privlege of being one of the first to get and run a 2015 kit

Not sure, the '15 is wider, by how much I don't know, you'd need the '14 front body post at least.

It'll need trimming at the rear a little. The 15 car is longer. I tried my 14 shell earlier. Chassis is longer.

Thumbs up Body - Old '14 Vs New '15

Thanks

That's good. I can send the new body off to the painter's, then trim the old body down and use that for a few weeks.
