The 14 Shell is more narrow also, it drops inside the tub.
IMO it is a bad fit, even if you start cutting.

The '14 bodys don't fit at all, the new chassis is quite a lot wider. Looks very bad.

I don't think trying to convert would be a good idea. It will cost you so much to do it you will be better off buying a new buggy. Only a few guys over seas have got there hands one there isn't much of an opinion yet on the new buggy.

I ordered my 2015 from Germany, but DHL tracking has a lot to be desired so I have no idea when it will arrive . . . but . . . I have my 2014 XB4 as close to dialed as possible . I'm almost worried to sell my current car and switch over to the new one . The center gear diff will be a nice option, but after watching the D413 and B44.3 guys at my track struggle to scoop out 100K and 80K diff oil to make center diff changes, I'm pretty happy with a center slipper. I'm looking forward to running a shorty pack though.

The 2015 XB4 manual is out on Team XRay's web site. The option center gear diff part is listed in the manual = #364901

I'm only using at most about 1600 Mah per 5 minute qualifier and that includes some practice laps. Over a 10 minute main I'm using less than 3500 Mah. I plan on using an SMC 4400 Mah 60C Shorty for my 2015 and that should be plenty of battery.

I hope it will. The car is basically the same, I don't see why we would need too.

You will just need to be clear which chassis you are using if you have a question.
