Thanks! Yes, it's probably an old kit. I will contact Xray.

You are seeing the xb4 16 car. That's going to be the stock body.

Speaking of which... I received my replacement part some 5-6 months ago, but as carpet season was over it sat in my pitbox until now... So I decided to change it before the new carpet season and found that the replacement part is actually completely different, it's the regular RR not RR+2 as on the newer cars. Is that what everybody got, or did I just got "lucky"?

got it. I havent measured the front wheels yet but Its my understanding the 22-4 wheels are the correct offset to use standard hexes but don't quote me on that.

As for the rears, I did measure that a TLR rear wheel (PL, Stock, etc.) is a -1mm difference. so I do run a +.75 rear 12mm hex to get back to stock width.

Its not the acutally turn buckle itself but, shooting from the hip, make sure that you turnbuckles aren't bound up. meaning that that have some play when you "turn" them. I *believe* what happens is that when you make a turnbuckle adjustment the ball cups actually get twisted in a way that doesn't let it move so when you wreck or something happens those forces cause it to pop-off.

Ill make a quick video on my car here later and post it up.

Looking for some advise i ordered the composite rear diff bevel gear and actually received the 35t aluminium bevel gear XRA364945 and was wondering what is the point of making it aluminium, what are the advantages of it being aluminium? is it purely to save weight or is there more to it.

Anybody have a good set up for a medium bite bumpy clay indoor track? It has a lot of jumps where you have to short jump onto lander. Car feels over sprung. I'm running the basic clay set up now.

Default 2015 xb4 body

So I've checked Amain and some other sites, I am not seeing anywhere to buy a 2015 body.. where is everyone buying them at? The only bodies I see were added in like 2013 so I don't figure they will work with the 15 buggy. Thanks for any help.

#369702 is the stock body for the 2015. Amain shows it in stock.

I have a 2015 and have ordered this before. It works great.

Thanks for the response, but I would be looking for a different body. Jconcepts, proline or something..

I was in the same boat. For example, I tried the jconcepts finisher body, but it is designed for the 2014-13. The 2015 is a bit wider and although you can make it work, the body does bow slightly because of the extra width. I personally did not like the fit and went back to the stock body.

I don't there is any other aftermarket body offered other than the jconcepts. If anybody knows, I'd love to see what's out there.
