Hey Rick, I placed third in the A-main at TISOC.

The car responded well to all setup changes, it was a bit free out of the box for me but was great for the mains. I had a some problems with one section of the track, have to work on that lol. My car took several hard hits with no problems yet with gears or towers. It's very smooth, I can see why it's fast on carpet.

I don't have a spare, so I made an aluminum brace that goes behind the front bulkhead. I screwed it in from the tower and thru the entire case. I put stop nuts on it and tightened it up. Lol even though the bulkheads cracked it held up an entire race day and is still going strong.

Team SR if your reading this, I think money could be made with some carbon fiber bulkhead braces. These combined with your towers would all but eliminate the initial problems of the XB4.

I'll try to get a pic of my brace. It's handmade so I'm a lil embarrassed.
