Thanks man!
here is my set up that day,and yes i was using 8000 centre diff fluid.I built the kit
with 100,000 then tried 50,000 then 20,000 then 8000 the lower i went the faster
i was getting around the track and the easier it was to drive and more off power steering i had on our slick track,3 other xb4s went down to 15,000 in the centre diff from 100,000 and all much preferred it.

That is what you could start with when it comes to oil weights (See info under), but personal preference is key anyway.

Just got mine today and are going to mount them and race the buggy this weekend. New build so I am pretty excited as this is my first 1/10 buggy, ever... Only run 1/8 scales up to this


From Avid's web store:
First run today new avid piston was big improment of my truck but still slapping in the ground will try 37.5 oil in the front and leave 30 in the rear

I guess you mean buggy right? Or are you using it on something different maybe?

Cool to hear that you have improvements tho

37.5 as Losi WT will be approx: 450 cSt and 37.5 as Associated WT will be approx: 500cSt if this info is used:

Code:
Unofficial conversion values provided by Gene Hickerson USA
cSt	Losi WT	Associated WT
100	10	7.5
150	15	12.5
200	20	17.5
275	25	22.5
300	27.5	25
350	30	27.5
400	32.5	30
425	35	32.5
450	37.5	35
500	40	37.5
Source

For my self I have a 100% build buggy and no chassis, as both chassis plates, incl. the one I got as replacement was slightly bent. Xray wanted me to send both to them for an investigation, and they will send me a couple new and guarantied straight as an arrow. Hopefully it will be less then two weeks or less. Can't wait to get my buggy up and running!

As long as the stock bevel gear is in good shape then run it.

I have xray 365000 diffs and they don't fit. To big. Are those the wrong diffs.

That's the right part number for xb4 ball diffs.

I would strongly not recommend that you run the steel bevel pinion with the ball diffs. It will chew up the crown gear fairly quick

Buy the graphite bevel pinion from the '14 kit instead.

I built my car with ball diffs and steel pinion. 6 months later and still on the same gears. And that's running on some high bite sugared tracks.

So I'm trying to setup my xb4 4wd for my local clay track and I am trying to see what oils I should start with for the shocks and what oils for the dif. I'm running a 2014 xb4 I bought used mad trine to go threw it and get it set to hook at my track. Any suggestions would be great.
Thank you
Justin

Look on RCAmerica under downloads, there are some good baseline setups there.
