Ran the new car last night and really liked it. Out of the box it seems to have a really neutral setup, super easy to drive and control. I think I need to add a touch more steering for my liking and I'll be dialed in.

The only things I changed for a clay track is putting the rear arm shims behind the arm to give some more weight behind the rear axles and I also moved the inner rear ball stud to the lower position which helped the car "flow" through corners better.

I would like to run the stock composite rear hubs and upgrade to the Xray 12mm hex and 12mm wheels. Will the 0mm offset 12mm hex (XRA365353) and 12mm wheels (#369912 and #369913) offer the same track width as a stock 2016 XB4 setup using the kit supplied 14mm hex and 14mm wheels?

Either drill the 2x1.4 or the blanks that come with the kit.

600-750cst in front and 500-550cst in rear depending on grip level.

1 dot springs front and rear for low to medium grip or stiffer if higher grip.

Where did you purchase the 1 dot springs for the front? The softest for the fronts appears to be a 2 dot. Did you cut a pair of the 1 dot rears?

I have already ask Bent about the One Dot rear springs. This was his relpy






To be honest I'm not entirely sure.

Maybe with the release of the XB2 as we use them there quite a lot.

You can cut down a set of rear 1dot springs to length though.
This will get you close to the 1 dot front springs (will be a touch harder).

That's what we did in testing before we had the 1 dot springs made

1 dot linear fronts should be 3.2 to 3.3 lb/in. Which are equaivalent to losi silver or associated white.

I think it's a statement to show how far the car has progressed over the years.

I was able to put a lot of the car together today - I really like the fit and finish - everything fits well. I haven't tackled the diffs or shocks yet.... But I'll be at a race all weekend and am only running 2 classes this time so I'll have lots of spare time to finish it. Plus my painter will be there so I can hand off the body to him

Well i just finished building the new 16 car and went and tested it at my local track and let me tell you its nothing short of awesome, the car went together in typical XRAY fashion and the parts are the same high quality we have come to expect from X-ray. The biggest difference i noticed was the bulk heads, shock towers and rear hubs and in my personal opinion any one running the 15 car that doesn't want to up grade just yet but wants to get there buggy handling like the new car all you will really need is shock towers and rear hubs, from what i can tell i see no reason why this won't get you very close and will give you a car that will feel like the 16, now i no a lot of people will disagree because yes the 16 car has more setup features like moving arms and motor position, but in my personal opinion they are tunning aids which are played with to adapt to track conditions and although these adjustments can make a huge difference i don't think they will be effective as the shock towers, and if your 15 car is already dialled and your looking to try something different i would definitly suggest the shock towers and rear hubs. I believe the biggest gain in handling and performance will come from the hubs and shock towers, its the new shock positions which have dramatically improved the car in my opinion, me myself am going to get the hubs and shock towers for my 15 car and that way can do a direct comparison.
On a different note can some one explain how the chassis flex screws are used meaning for high traction you use all 7 screws but i run on a very low grip track so which of the chassis flex screws would i not install, for example do i leave out the front middle or rear or do i not install any off them, some help will be greatly appreciated.
