Yes, I know, I have a lot of reading to do. I'll catch up sooner or later.
I believe the carpet basic and clay basic are the baseline setups. I'm running the basic clay setup until I figure out what needs tweaking.

22 rear are same offset as b5 so you want 7mm hex width.

Scte hex is the right width for the front but the rear will be narrow by 2mm per side. I think the scte hexes are 5mm

Just measure your scte hexes. If they are 7mm you can use them in the rear.

Losi just released optional rear scte hexes that are .5mm wider and they say they're 5.5mm so that's hiw I figured the width of the stock ones. Haven't measured them myself.

Does the majority of xb4 drivers change out the hexes? I was planning on just keeping the 14mm hexes on. However, it would be nice to use the same wheels/tires as my Losi 22

I have 12mm hexes to use 60mm wheels. I just like knowing I will be able to buy wheels at my local track.

you can really only reuse the rears. the only reason to use 12mm is if that is what your LHS has. I am looking at maybe getting a 2014 car (with 2015 parts), and if i do, I will probably just run the 14mm wheels. Unless I can get the proper 12mm hexes on the cheap. Also, if you want to use 2.4 wheels, you might need 12mm hexes. not sure anyone makes those in 14mm yet.

The 14mm wheels by Xray are great quality and hold up well. I have a lot of 14mm wheels still and it's very easy swapping out hexes if need be. I've been running 60mm dirtwebs with the 2pair of wheels you save a lot of $$

So is there any advantage to the 2.4 wheels an tires on clay besides them looking good?

RC America may have had the center gear diff in stock, but email response I received today from them (figured I'd try in the country first before going to XRay shop) confirms they're out right now:

Part number 364901 is currently on backorder with XRAY, but should be available in about three weeks. Once we receive them, any dealers who might have these on backorder will get them shortly after.
