Saddle Pack
Thanks Dustin,

I am running saddle pak config. as it made sense in having a half dozen pairs of saddles. I also like the extra run time with the 6000mah saddles. I currently have Schelle 1.5 1.1 Front and Schelle 1.6 1.1 rears.

I am waiting for some 500k I ordered some time ago but started with 200k

I will update you on how it feels with the 200k

No problem my freind. The bushing is strictly for use with the steel gears.

Norse,
I just got the steel gears for my front and rear diff, to swap out the composites with, does that mean I need to find this bushing to swap the pinion & ring gears? If so, do you by chance have a part number? Thanks.

Yes, you need the bush if you are planning on using the steel gear. See page 6 of the XB4'15 instructions.

EZ,

Boz is correct as you need to use the bushings with the metal gears. They are really cheap. I have a some NIB if you want me to send you them.

I might have missed this in an older post. But has anyone change the rear shocks from the front to the back? Appears you have to move the shock tower to the backside of the diff case also? Benefits?

Shocks placed on the rear side of the shock tower is benefitial for higher bite/ smoother tracks. Ex: carpet etc.

When I ordered the steel bevel gears for my '14 these bushings were included with the gears.
