Where do people in the us go for xray parts on-line? No LHS carries xray, and amain is out of stock for what I'm looking for.

running diff oils in excess of 300-500k at what point is this any different that running a slipper? seems like a moot point and no real value on the track other than everyone crying for one and getting ppl to spend money.

Yes xray sells ball diffs for the xb4. I've been running them in mine since I built it. I tried the gear diffs for 1 race day and went back to ball for med bite. We're going outdoors next week for high bite sugar and I'll probably switch to gear diffs.

I've been wanting to try the ball diffs but $140 is a big price tag when I don't know if ill like them

Have you tried a Google search on the part number? Or ebay? There are a few online shops that sell xray stuff in the us.

XRAY XB4 vented Aluminum Shock Caps Questions?

Do the bleeder screws on the shock caps need o-rings?
Do the shock cap shims act as seal as well? If so my guess would be to lightly grease them or lightly coat with Green Slime?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Anybody try any bodies other than the kit one? What else do we have for good options? I see the DMX body, not sure if it's designed for the '15, and the Finnisher also....

Yes, you'll need the small 2mm o-rings for the bleeder screw holes (exotek sells replacements), Not sure about shock cap shims, but I know you need an o-ring between the shock body & shock cap (can use one from the plastic caps too).
