They are sold out

If anyone whom needs one or more just send Thomas an email as he can turn them out quick. The last 10 he turned out within 48 hours of requesting, thus again just shoot him an email and he will email you back with a turn around time,

Spec Rs are only available through order to get them in greece and it would take about 2-3 weeks to get them on my hands...
I did change them with huddy which i found pretty cheap as stock on a hobby shop here, and serviced my shocks and differentials with new oil. i run 5000 front and 1000 back and 350 back susp, 450 front susp. It runs pretty smooth on our track here which is carpet placed on dirt actually. now i am just waiting for new schummacher mini pins and lets go for a few fast laps :P

Does anyone know if there are any other bodies to fit the 2016 XB-4 yet? The stock XRAY wide V2 bodies seem to be kinda scarce right now....not to mention expensive.

I do not know if there are any aftermarket bodies for the 16, however for V2 bodies you may want to check. I think Amain is out of stock, try the below US based XRAY dealers.

Absolute Hobbyz // scratch that off as they are out of stock
Discount RC Store // sorry bro scratch them off as well as their out of stock.
GSHobby

Try eBay as well

Oh! If you have No luck with those give RC America a call.

Hey my friend for a 16XB4 body check out Penguin RC bodies. They have a V2 for the 16 XB4 that will cost you $17 US dollars plus another $7 to ship.

Hi Bent, finished putting my XB2 together. Beautiful kit!

What roll center holes were you using on Malins Buggy?

Could you please post a pic of the homemade chassis stiffener that attaches to the battery brace? Thanks!

Default Rear wheel nut coming loose

Bit of an odd experience but my right rear wheel nut seems to loosen after a 5 minute run. I run on indoor astro, XB4 pretty much stock and have not experienced this before.

Anybody else run into this?

If you are not using locknuts put some blue Loctite on the threads to help reduce the potential for a wheel to come off during a run. the right side front and rear are more prone to loosening due to the thread and wheel rotations.
