I moved the esc behind the motor before but don't like the wire layout and only shift few g. Cheap scales from Harbor Freight but work.

I have just posted my setup from last night on the Xray website. It was fun to drive. It was the first time, for a long time that I have been able to throw my car into the corner at the end of the straight and still have full control of it (a 180deg corner). Our track is bumpy at the moment, so I would stiffen the oils 2.5wt or 5wt from what I was using.

No, they are to stiff for my liking for our track.

My pistons are listed on the setup sheet, under custom piston. I drill my own.

This is what I'm running.
Front 2H/1.6mm 37.5wt AE
Rear 2H/1.7mm 30wt AE

First run my buggy xray xb4 2015 and wow i love it how smooth to drive. This is the best rc car that i have. I change set up from box stock set up. I've driving my sct 410 tekno for almost a year and lot of upgrade but this xray xb4 '15 is a beast very smooth to drive. I have losi before but that's not right for me and i sold it. Now i want to sell my tekno and keep this buggy. I am happy to pick this buggy instead d413.To be honest best rc car that i've own i highly recommended this buggy.

quick question on the shorty build. I heard the manual is wrong at the beginning. What length center drive shaft is in the rear verses the front for the shorty configuration?

The manual in the box is incorrect.
95mm is on the rear (long)
85mm is on the front (short)


It has been fixed in the V2 instruction's available on the Xray website.

Tip
Remove, cause it was wrong. Thanks Wayne.

Whether you are building the saddle or the shorty configuration, the shorter shaft will always be installed on the rear bulkhead.
Wrong sorry
The 95mm shaft is the rear
85mm is the front on shorty configuration

The mm size was wrong, but the short vs long was right in the wording. so yea just watch as you build. Longer one goes in the rear.

Thanks Wayne. Updated. I know I should have walked to the other side of the room and looked.


It was just the mm's that was the wrong way around, not the wording.

I haven't built a shorty version yet, cause I don't have any shorty packs.
