Oh that SUCKS.... Search a bit on previous pages on how to measure.

This is a serious turn off, I was thinking about buying this kit for outdoor season...

Pretty sure mine is off. I'm using calipers to measure from the screw hole to the outer edge of the holder and from the screw hole to the inner edge and consistently getting about .5mm more on the right side. Is that what others have seen?

I just noticed the center diff comes with polymer gears vs. steel like the 15 kit front and rear. Anyone have issues with them stripping?
Even with the toe off the car is better than the b44.3 mine is off and i still run my 15 and the car is still the best 4wd out of the box!

Yea i'm still excited about it and can offset via the insert in the meantime.

My b44.3 did ok when we had a smoother and faster layout, but drives like a brick with wheels now that we added some whoops and more technical features. I think one of the main issues is that the 44.3 has no kick-up so the shocks can't dampen much of the force when the front end meets steep or sharp bumps. (probably also causes much of it's arm breakage) Bought it more as a toy to go along with my B5M which I do really like and liked being able to share shocks and a few other things. but now that the 4wd class has taken off I want the best equipment

Seems like good news on the holder front. Just got this email from rcamerica:

Thank you for your purchase of the XRAY XB4 2015. We just received the replacement plates from XRAY, so we will get one on the way to you.

Just got my XB4 in last week from Amain and its all built up and ready to run. I had the same note in box about issue with rear holder and I received a call from Amain yesterday saying they see I recently purchased an XB4 and just received the replacement holder in would I like them to send me one? Of course...

Customer service at its best.

Yup brass is one is off too, you can see it if you look down at the gap from the arm to the gear casing.

Default Front drive shafts

Hey guys, I have just broken one front axle on my XB4 and the other side isn't far behind. As I am on a tight budget I cant afford to order genuine Xray ones at around $25 each, I know the fronts are 81mm. The 22-4 has the same length, I'm wondering if they could be an option?

Thanks Daniel Kies

According to a Slovakian guy at work, they're there to baffle and confuse you!

Actually, he had no idea why they might be in there
