You only need it if you don't use a rear top deck - it holds the rear body post.

Thanks! I'm using Velcro to keep the body on so I wont worry about it too much. Just makes me crazy that the piece grew legs and walked off the table hah

Default 2014 XB4

So I just purchased a 2014 XB4 and I was wondering if anyone on here has converted from saddle pack to shorty battery pack? If so how did u do it and how difficult was it to do?

Besides losing that piece the maiden drive was a success and handles quite well for the basic clay setup. The only piece that broke was the tip of the wing mount.

What is the different between these arms. I know in the manual the part number for my front arm is 362111 but wasn't sure if there was a difference between these 2

The #362111 is the newer style arm (from '14 and onwards) that's shorter to allow wheelbase adjustments with shims on the inner hinge pins.

It also allows the use of the graphite arm stiffeners.

What effect does removing the rear top deck? More flex?
