Hey guys, I need to replace the rear axle carrier on my 2013 XB4, are they the same as the 2015?

Is there a way to find the 2013 manual online? I cant find it...

They should be. The part numbers are the same on both manuals. The 2015 one is slightly beefier.

Does anyone know if the 2015 slipper set fits a 2013?

The screw holding that whole assembly together is stripped and have to rebuild the whole thing

I need help here please. I just finish my XB4 2015 car and I am using Team Orion ESC and Motor sensor and the motor is running reverse.. I was thinking can I just flip the rear and front diff and leave the motor how it is and the car will run forward by doing that?

ok another question when I try doing the the motor mesh with the spur gear on the motor mount the motor will need to rotate and then tighten the screw down but when I do that the mesh is too tight. can anyone put up a pic focusing on the gear mesh like that I can see how you did it. It in the book it looks simple. I rotated ontil it lock and then I screw down the screw but it is too tight..

Does anyone run the "progressive" springs? I bought all of the springs and was wondering what advantage the progressive springs have over the regular ones or when they would be better?

Thanks

I keep the mesh a bit looser than I want it and it closes up when you tighten the screw. It wil probably take a few attempts at it to get it right / to your liking.

I like the progressive springs,I feel the car stays planted better..i went to stock springs on same setup and was a little squirrely off some of the bigger jumps landings.
