Do any of you know if the B5 front caster block bushings will fit the Xray? I seem to have lost one...

Going by the spread between 2 dot and 3 dot, they should be around 3.31 lbs/in.

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!

Look here for spring rates. It cross references different mfgs against rate.

BentKa for low grip and tight track do you recommend the ECS drive shaft front and rear and the independent servo mount?

Thanks

What can I do to make this drive more like a 2wd/or easier to drive?

Currently it just wants to traction role/flip easy, and you can't really push it that hard.

Tried associated springs just to make shock package stiffer, and it's still the same thing.

Try running a higher roll center this with your eccentric bushings. Also adjust your camber links and mounts front and rear for more roll.

Quick question which may seem a little stupid on my part, however I need clarification.

For lower bite conditions will placing the rear shocks behind the rear a-arms provide more traction? For some reason this setting on the XB4 has been somewhat unclear to me.

The YZ4 advises for lower bite conditions to run the rear shocks behind the rear shock tower, thus behind the rear a-arms.

What rear shock position relative to the rear a-arms and rear shock tower is working best for lower bit conditions regarding the 16 XB4?

Again in owning the 15 XB4 and moving on to the 16XB4, one would think I would have a good understanding of this, however thats not the case.

Thank you for any advice pertaining to the above as always I appreciate the help from the participants in the XB4 forum.
