I can second that on my '15 version. It's quite stable that driving it at times, feels boring... then again i'm more of an on road driver these days.

Great, thanks.

Running 13.5 medium / high grip clay (Ocrc). Just getting around to installing the gear diff. Just realized 500,000 cst hudy diff oil is $30! I was going to experiment with different weights but at this price I better get it right. Is that a good starting point? Local factory drivers of many brands looked at me like I was a total crazy rookie by asking about running such high weights (I am a rookie btw). They stated 100k was the most they rarely see.. What's a good starting point and what makes this buggy different than all the others

500.000 cst is spot on for low to medium grip

For high grip we run 1.000.000.

My question is, do any other 4wd buggies frequently run this heigh oil weight of oils weight in medium bite to high bite clay? Im new to 4wd but from what I've seen for 10th scale 4wd' has been, at most from what I see, upper teens.

Unless I'm wrong and with a limited sample pool, what makes the xb4 take such higher weight oils and why? What makes the xb4 different? Thx all
All bents info is leggit. Ive been running these xb4s since 13'. 500k on med bite is decent about 5 min of the 7 min we run in mains seems to heat up and lose forward bite . It can be easier to drive but like i said lacks forward bite . 1mil def feels best so far . I run 5k, 1 mil, and 3k rear. Feels best for my style. Plenty of steering and forward bite .

I am using 7k 200k 5k on med-hi grip clay and mine is on rails also...thinking of bumping the center up to 500k just on the advise of others but honestly buggy is so good i dont really want to touch it.

If i were you and were going to 500k i would probably leave the 8 in the front and drop the rear to 5 or so.

Shoot, you might want to try just changing one diff at a time and see how you like it, that is what i am going to do.

I 2nd that. I run 7k,300k,5k or 7k,500k,5k on med/high grip running electrons. Of course you can run higher like others say but for me that just gives me a faster Hot Lap and not a better overall time for 7min. the reason is the car is much more consistent running lower weight oils so less of a chance of making a mistake.
