Cool - Trying to get 2 sticker sheets. I'm finding $40-$50 is the going rate. Stickers are expensive!!! ?

In general high roll center works well.

Thank you for the input guys (Zerodefect, symmetricon,randy0025 and punkracer24).

I had a productive night practicing, 3 steps forward, 1 back. That's racing for you.

25.1sec down to 24.4sec.


Cheers again.

PS. I still have a few more of the adjustments the try.

Thanks Chris,

It helps a lot.

The 12 mm wheels are much softer, so we tend to use them most of the time since they produce overall more traction. They are also less prone to crack on heavy impacts....

The CVD's in my XB9 are likely stronger than the monster sized CVD's in my Losi 5ive.

If they dry up and sieze, any CVD will snap like a twig. Make sure you lube them often.

Good morning, I am looking for tire selection help. My son and I both have xb4's now (mine 2016, his 2015) and we will be running on a fairly dry, dusty , relatively smooth layout with minimal large jumps. A friend uses impacts with decent success but I was wondering if there are other, similar tires that may work. At nearly $50 a set experimentation is expensive. Lol.

Thanks in advance.

JConcepts Reflex on 60mm wheels.


JC 3d's:


If your wheels are true and uncracked, wire brush the disk so it looks new, cut off the old tire, remove the foam, and toss the wheel in a bucket of acetone so the rest of the tire comes unglued. Reuse the wheel. $30 then. Tires are always a good investment. Try to burn up as many as possible.

You'll need a 12mm hex adapter for the 60mm wheels. Get a good assortment, hex width is a critical tuning option.

has anyone tried the Yokomo Yatabe Arena Turf/Carpet Springs on the Xray? Do I need different cups? Yokomo or AE cups?

Thanks Zerodefects. I have the adapters on both buggies and the JConcepts work out cheaper than the impacts which will help now that my tire bill is doubled with my son learning.

Xray cups should be fine with the 4dot/3dot worlds setup.

But when I go stiffer, I like to have aluminum cups, either the Xray or Exotech, should be fine.
