Can anyone tell me what thicker front diff fluid will do on medium/high grip. Will this help on power steering? I'm getting 20 different answers. As of right now I'm running 5k rear and 10k front.

For medium high grip, I would stick with 10K up front and test both 7K and 10K. I like 7K on medium to medium-high and 10K on medium-high to high grip. Just today, I was running 7K and the car wasn't quite right so I went up to 10K and it was fantastic.

Hey guys!

Would you sell your xb4 2014 for a 2016 chassis ? or buy a new basher-crawler whatever?

Thanks in advance.

Nothing wrong with the 2014 car. If it's in good shape I would keep it. I've had 2014 thru 2016 and my 2014 car was just as good as any of them.

Any tips on the out drives. Mine seem to leak on one side. I built them with grease.

Soak your diff o-rings in a lighter weight oil (EX:shock oil) for a couple hours before installing. I soak diff orings for a couple hours then coat them with green slime before installing.

I do the same for shock orings but only soak them for 10 minutes.

Is a 13.5 motor enough motor for this car or will it be a slug. I haven't used a 4wd buggy before so sorry if it's a dumb question
