Gotcha, I will make those changes and try them on Wednesday when I am at the track again. Thank you

I am after getting the rear of the car to be more locked in and the front to be a little less twitchy. I also noticed that I wanted more low speed steering for getting around the tight 180's as I would need to slide the car to get it pointed around the inside of the corner. The 7 up front helped with the low speed steering and I feel like the rear hasnt improved(although theoretically I may have gone backwards with the fluid to try and correct my issue?) I need to drill a set of pistons for 2x1.6 and 2x1.7 as I think that will soften the rear up as well as smooth out the front of the car. Any other suggestions? Thanks guys
For low to medium grip dirt / clay we run 1 dot springs front and rear, 2x1.6 / 600 cst front and 2x1.7 / 500 cst rear.

Get your center diff oil up to at least 300.000 cst or preferably 500.000 cst (we run 1.000.000 cst most of the time).

If you are running the '16 model also get the medium side guards (#361265) and medium front and rear chassis braces (front #361294 / rear #361295) as this will give you more chassis flex and much better traction for low to medium grip tracks.

Then you have plenty of carpet and astro setups here:

Select XB4 '14 and click "Team Drivers" "YES" in the bottom right.

All of these parts are in good stock all over Europe and have been for quite some time now.

Why they are so hard to get hold of in the US you will have to ask RcAmerica.

They have been in stock at Xray for order for months.

Send them an email or put in an order from one of the European shops/distributors.

I know several US customers have had nothing but good experiences dealing with Gerhard at X-ray-shop.at

What should I be running for med bite clay track with my '15 as far as slipper, ball diff, gear diff?

What about outdoor loose dirt track?

I assumed gear diff would be more for carpet and ball diff for dirt/clay? Is that right? Is the xray ball diff a good upgrade to the slipper or is it not much improvement?
Thanks

This is an awesome setup for medium grip clay that we used on the '15 for Euros this year

Okay.

We run the slipper at 0 - 0.4mm on the '16 which gives a good amount of slip.

Take the spring out and compress it a few times with a set of pliers.
