Suby is right on point, as the composite diff gears are very durable. Even better the 16 XB4 Kit comes standard with the upgraded graphite 4 + 2 diff gears.
Super smooth, super quiet and very very durable.

I ran the upgraded graphite 4 + 2 diff gears f/r/c in my 15 and they worked flawlessly. Ninja silent, super smooth. Nice to know there standard for the 16 as they normally run $29 per diff.

No…..we run stock Xray composite

Seals better, wears better and performs better

Can anyone answer the question above? I would like to run the Xray 12mm hex/wheel combo while maintaining the stock track width.

Took the time out of my day to measure the different track widths using the new Xray 12mm hex wheels with the Xray 12mm wheel hexes.

All measurement are done on the '16 XB4 using:
  • 20mm ride height (placed on Hudy 20mm droop blocks)
  • 3 degree toe-in in the rear
  • 1 degree toe-out in the front
  • Hinge pin inserts in the middle position front and rear.
  • Measured on the rear of the rear wheels (no tires)
  • Measured on the front of the front wheels (no tires)

Width using stock 14mm wheel hexes and Xray V2 14mm wheels:
  • Front: 245mm
  • Rear: 245mm

Width using 12mm wheel hexes and Xray 12mm wheels:
Front:
  • #365354 -0.75mm = 242mm
  • #365353 0mm = 243,5mm
  • #365355 +0.75mm (1 stripe) = 245mm
  • #365356 +1.5mm (2 stripe) = 246,5mm
  • #365357 +2.25mm (3 stripe) = 248mm
  • #365358 +3.00mm (4 stripe) = Not enough threads on axle to secure the wheel nut.

Rear:
  • #365353 0mm = 243mm
  • #365355 +0.75mm (1 stripe) = 245mm
  • #365356 +1.5mm (2 stripe) = 247mm
  • #365357 +2.25mm (3 stripe) = 249mm
  • #365358 +3.00mm (4 stripe) = 251mm

I never had any issues with my Bugle Boy bumper on my 15 XB4 and it was subjected to tons of outdoor track abuse. I even cut the back 1/3rd of it off for a nicer looking fit.
