Need a bit of help. I was practicing this weekend with my xb4 and it was fish tailing more than usual the track was dusty an lose. The buggy is in stock form an I was using caliber tires. My ? is does the fish tailing has to do with the sway bars if I go with a thicker sway bars with it first tail less or is it something else??

Thanks

If you go with thicker sway bars, it would probably be worse. Without knowing where your set-up is currently, I would start with thinner rear diff oil, or raising your inner ball-stud.

Maybe Xray is holding off on the release of the '16 kit, just so they can put a pretty sticker on the box.


'2016 World Champion XB4'16'


Come on Malin, you can do it.

Bayer and Coelho are too old. Still fast, just on the wrong side of 16y.

Bayer has done it before, he can do it again.

Anyone got a good setup for a xb4'15 for astroturf that has medium traction.

I do not think that the 2016 has that much of a change to sell my 15 for the 16 version..

One thing Xray presentation of there product is so good that kinda make you want to buy it just by looking at the website..

I wonder how many part I can transfer over from the new 16 to the 15

Trying to figure out of the XB4 wheels are that different from the 2015 and before, or if they're just re-enforced. To have to replace tires/wheels will be most costly than the vehicle itself.

The 16 car appears to be geared towards high traction surfaces. There are quite few new parts and I can't see it being cost effective this time to convert over.

I don't know about that. The ability to move the motor rearward seems like it would help a lot on low / med traction.

Agree 100% there. Everything substantial is new and redesigned. Chassis, arms, towers, bulkheads, top decks, not to mention the driveshafts (it probably comes with 2 sets of different lengths to accommodate the motor position adjustment... Definitely cheaper to just get the '16. Personally, I finally got the setup nailed on my '15 (only took me a year to do it) so I'm not starting over with a new car.

It says "Optional" by the driveshafts needed to utilize the rearward motor position I was hoping they would be included too.
Think ill probably upgrade from my '14 even though I really have no complaints about it.

EDIT: I had it backwards the forward motor position is stock
