i built it after this setup

I have 3,5mm uptravel limiter on the shock as well.
The rear right outdrive seems to be longer out of the diff bulkhead than the left one (see picture). it looks the same in the front of my car, but the driveshaft in front is no problem.

Is not enyone else have this problem???

Mine do that but I haven't had any issues with it causing problems. Mine just barely contact. You can add more limiters so it gets better.

We're running the hinge pin inserts in the inner and lowest positions and use 4mm + O-ring for up travel limiters.

Have been doing so for months now with no issues

Malin's setup here:

http://forum.teamxray.com/xform/inde...setup=xb4_2015

As the info below says the outdrives have been updated and have had material added which in turn have shortened the openings.

So any time you change shock positions and hinge pin inserts you want to check for down travel and up travel running smoothly without binding.

If you have binding add the appropriate number of limiters.

also make sure the steering rack is not catching the bulkhead screws.. They are pretty close, I have had them rub..

has anyone tried 6 hole 1.1 pistons front and rear
over the stock piston set up?
I'm going to be running on a low traction dirt track with
small jumps , was thinking it might give me more overall
traction ,seems like the 2 hole 1.4 and 3 hole 1.3 pistons
have a lot of pack.

I run one on my DEX410 and I really like it. I run it along with the stock bumper just because I can. It definitely helps if your car has an unnatural attraction to obstacles.

I like that design a little better. It's not as bulky.

They have a website T-bone-racing.net they make pretty good stuff. They make great skid plates for the rear end too.

That's good to know as I just received my bugleboy front bumper. Are the 2 screws holding it secure?

Thanks

I've been running the Avids with great results. 2 + 2 1.5 front and 1.6 rear. The bottom of the link shows tips on how to use them.
