One of the guys at the track was telling me what needed to be taken apart just to get to the diffs but he said the same thing though. Drives great just stinks to work on.

No, they are the same front bumpers and front mounts..

Shorty. The car does fly well. Since the turn is right after the single I need to get on the brakes sooner than I do with my 2wd. It doesn't happen every time, just when I screw up

Been looking to get into 4wd buggy and really curious about this one been looking at the hotbodies and TLR as well just can't make up my mind. Biggest question is how is durability anyone run those carbon arm inserts? Any insight would help have a couple tlr vehicles and am very happy with them but didnt wanna jump the gun not a fanboy just looking for the best for my buck thanks.

I see broken tlr 22-4s every week pretty much. last weekend 2 were sitting together between the pipes while we finished the race. IMO, they are not that durable. The D413 is a tank and the xray is pretty durable also.

XRay and HB are the only 4wd buggies that race at our track. I think I've seen one TLR 22-4 but not often. Someone had a ZX5 but sold it and is going to replace it with the new serpent wheeler. So far I'd say after a few wrecks that the xb4 is pretty darn durable.

Thanks like what I'm hearing and the issue with the rear machining is fixed now correct?

Thats been a worry and just durability haven't heard any problems with durability like I have with the associated and losi rigs so juicy checking around. Looks like a real tunable ride how is it to wrench on heard the hotbodies can be a pain

the hot bodies does suck to work on. But they dont drive the same at all. if you like the way touring cars feel, then the xb4 is for you.

Yeah I'm just looking for a 4wd that's not a carton of eggs on wheels that I can push and tune so it does what I want it to do. I like working on my cars. But don't want to have half my box filled with front arms hoping I can make it through the day. I understand the physics of a car this weight and speed that if I hit a wall it's gonna break but also don't want to have to drive worried. Drivers fear in the weakness of his machine slows him down. Also don't want to have to rebuild ball diffs every week. Gonna be on a indoor clay track with this. A lot of traction turns and jumps. Think it will work for me?
