Just send me a PM and I can get you hooked up for about half the price of the TeamSR towers.

The holes cutouts are the same as the stock towers, should be a perfect fit.

The car felt much more planted w/out them. Plus I run on a tight little track. I also went to 3k in rear diff and 7k up front. Hopefully that will make the car a bit less darty and more predictable.

XB4 with Martin Bayer is doing pretty good in the a-main at the EOS. 5th spot!

Some details of his car: http://eos.redrc.net/2013/01/chassis...-martin-bayer/

Got a chance to race mine yesterday. This car is phenomenal. First pack through car cut my typical lap by about .5 seconds versus my Durango. Very easy to drive car. Even had all my radio settings at default. Broke the 17 sec barrier at my track several times which is freakishly fast for our tracks current layout and fast lap of my day was only .25 off our fastest 4wd guy's fastest lap who is one of the fastest guys in region. Pulled an 18 lapper in quals which hardly anyone does. Everyone noticed how good the car looked on track. Very very stable running the stock clay setup with a few minor tweaks. Too say I'm happy with this car would be an understatement.

I had a few pretty hard bobbles and absolutely no breaks. Not sure if folks are hitting walls head on but my car was solid as a tank. I took two high speed cartwheels, clipped a few tubes, plus several lawn darts and being hacked by out of control Scts.

Diff gears held up great. Drive train is über smooth. So smooth it kind of messed up my jumping some because there is very little drag so I had to learn to stay off the throttle in air. I set slipper at about 6.5mm and the tightened it up a tad. Working perfectly. Rechecked all gears. Perfect.

This car is money and damn near cheating. .

Sweet :-) Will post some pics of mine when the shorter servo is in. Full size servo fits, but I just want it more cleaner.

Three days of EOS over here with Martin Bayer and many Xray drivers. Track was very difficult for our european style tracks and because of the huge amount of racers just a little training

All drivers using the composite diff parts (martin uses them too) had no issues.

Shock towers are very solid, but not unbreakable. Sand them, clean them and seal them with thin CA inner and outer contour. The towers will not break, they will be scrubbed down much earlier one driver broke a front tower with a front crash at high-speed.

Bulkheads were a bigger problem for the amateur racers. Luckily the distributor came over and brought bulkheads plus new kits, we were allowed to take out parts. THAT'S Service !

I was able to talk to Martin the whole weekend, kind racer, for the guys who killed the cvd bushings, there will be some bling also the shock caps will be availlable as tuning part.

Almost everyone used the 2stripe springs all around. Shock oils were very different, most used around 300 to 350 and 400 to 500.

Waiting for the next weekend and the next race, the car is pure fun. Compared to all the damages at this weekend, the bulkheads are a minor problem, we just raised the bar very high because of the unbreakable 1/8 scale buggy.

Besides, bulkheads are marked with a small F for the front, but it is very small.

Soon to be selling most of my kit, FS2s, DB1 and the XB4 or V3s have my eye at present.

2WD is RB6.

Thinking of March time to see where it all leads re any updates etc and UK team drivers.

Notice that a lot of cars are using low profile servos, looks like for space reasons it's a requirement

Anyone from FS2 done any more running with the XB4

Low profile isn't required, but it does help in getting the motor wires from the ESC cleaner and less of an angle through the slot.

plenty of room, seems roomier than the ZX and definitely easier to access.
I'll make you a great deal on an FS2... running this magnificent car again tommorow night.
