Either way dont wanna snap ojtxrives to be replaced with old or updated parts. Due to price point. And b/o partz

Nor do iknow if im getting old or updated parts wich i assume im getting newer parts due to the fact the old style was b/o for the last 6months .ive bought a 15 centre diff for my 14 on ebay hoping it will work . Still not sure.

If you use the most inner position you must have external up-stop limiter on your dampers, otherwise you will have the problem you are mentioning.

The center diff will not fit the 14 without some real modifications.

My 2015 XB4 keeps getting better! Running the shorty and center diff with 100k. I have no issues with forward bite using 100k. I've read a few guys wanting to go higher than 100k to be able to clear some of their bigger jumps but that is not my experience thus far. Last night I was consistently hitting a triple located immediately after a sharp 90 deg turn; a jump I previously would just double-single. The center diff for me on clay is infinitely better than the slipper! I Love this wheeler!

But looking at the rear tires/wheels; doesn't look like much toe at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The FR holder is for the rear of the front bulkhead.

Yeah I have no intentions to change from 100k also. I'm running 8k front and 7k rear. What are you using?

I did actually and it was pretty good. Hard pack/dusty conditions and I ran the car without a rear top deck and no chassis screws(only two required). The car was a lot better without the top deck.

cheers for that mate.
what pistons did you choose on your dusty track?
does anyone who filled their centre diff up with 100,000 remember how much
it weighed?

2 hole front and 3 rear (kit setup) 37.5w losi oil front with 3 dot and 27.5w losi 1 dot rear. Set up links for low roll centers also and I was still running 1.2 swaybars front and rear. I never weighed my center diff but just filled to the same spot as the front and rear.

I'm running 8K front and 5K rear. That's what I ran in my 2014 so I built the 2015 kit diffs this way right out of the box.

Do the pistons in the shocks seem better on the 15 kits? I know the the 14's had a lot of problems and guys were replacing them with avids.
