Thanks!
Not what you want to hear, but get one set of each of the Xray 12mm hubs that are wider than stock.

Track width is a very easy effective tool with this car.

Are the 12 degree front hubs for the Xb4 worth the price or will the Exotek ones work just as good?

Anyone know when the extended 21mm shock ends will be released? Stormer has had them on their site backordered for what seems like months now...

They have already been out for some time now from Xray.

Why Stormer don't have them I do not know, but they are free to order them from Xray or RcAmerica.

Thanks for pointing that out . I've got a guy on it.

If we ever miss anything obvious, let us know. It happens from time to time. Some new part number gets missed.


We're merging over to a new website, and you can see it here too, and it will be easier to track it there (pop it on a wish list, etc).

It will allow you to increase ride height compared to the shorter stock shock ends. Increased or decreased traction will depend on many other factors including surface type and setup.

Any idea on the difference in length between these and the Xray shock ends? from a cost perspective these are certainly worth a try

Just bought an X-Ray Xb4. Have been running Losi and now have a new ride. Is there anything that I need to upgrade from the start of my new build? Thanks, I can't wait to be an X-Ray driver.

For high grip clay, I bought the medium flex spines and side guards, one dot springs and added caster beyond the stock setup. I've never been able to drive any of my other wheelers so fast with so much grip. This car is incredible.

Thanks Lance. I looked at the X-Ray setup site but did not see Ethan's name. Do you have another link?
