Sweet! Nice driving my friend. Where is this track? I noticed you are in Wisconsin and so am I but I have not heard of Innivation. Wow! that's a super nice track and facility. I wish we had an indoor facility like that in Lacrosse.

Like your paint scheme brother.

300 for high bite clay but 100 for low/medium. I can't wait to try 500/10000 for sugar tracks this summer.

It is in New Holstein, WI Between lake MI and Lake Winnebago. Very nice track/Hobby Shop with great people that run it and race there! Check them out on FB https://www.facebook.com/InnovativeHobbiesAndRaceway There is usually a few XB4's generally in mix with a solid wheeler class...

Sweet! Thanks for the info. I have not looked on the map but I am guessing New Holstein may be somewhat close Fondulac? I am looking forward to visiting this track sometime soon.

Thanks again!

We also use the steel 14T gear in pairs with the steel or aluminum 35T gears to ensure a perfect mesh between them as they have different wear characteristics

That's great Bent, thanks, I will build them as you suggest. Assuming both are properly setup, is there an advantage or disadvantage of running saddles vs a shorty on a slippy track.
Thanks

Default ESC for 14 XB4

Hey guys I just bought myself a 2014 X-ray XB4 it came with a Team Orion VST2 6.5t motor and a Orca 90c Saddle Pack. Was wondering does anybody run the HobbyWing EZRUN 120a ESC? If so how do you like it? Also does anyone run the Team Orion Vortex RT10 120a ESC? If so how do you like it? And which one would you guys recommend? Thanks

EZRUN is sensorless. Sensorless has no business being in a race vehicle.
If you go Hobbywing, get the XERUN 120A V3.1

Orion R10 and R10.1 are great ESCs.

My #1 choice for any 1/10 scale vehicle is the ORCA VX3.

Thanks to all those for seemingly taking the lead on this. Looks like Xray has finally looked into it and is making corrections.
