I'm sure they'll update something on it. On their touring car they've made super minor tweaks the past two years and have really just perfected the setups. Although, who knows, maybe they'll have some totally radical new buggy.

the t4 17 has some pretty radical changes actually...

- new chassis
- new complete steering system, new mount, and new ackermann changes
- new ARS suspension system
- new bulkheads
- new motor mount
- new top deck
- new flex tuning options
- new arms

and im sure there's some more things.

the point is it most likely won't be an update like that, just some minor things..

The xb4 16 is an amazing car right out of the box, anyone interested in getting it shouldn't hesitate.

In the video Schumacher Wide Stagger front and Mini Pin rear as these are the control tires for the EuroOffroadSeries.

But normally we run JConcepts Pin Downs.

Car (and driver) looks dialed!

Which setup of hers is she using?

Are all the parts on that car currently available to the public (see what I did there?)

Any idea when the 2016 car will be back in stock in the States? It seems to be out everywhere.

Curious to see how often others with the ECS shafts do maintenance on them. I've been cleaning and re greasing mine every other race outing and they still seem to wear extremely fast. I'm running on a low to med traction dirt indoor track so this type of wear seems excessive in my opinion.

I will likely go back to the regular shafts unless I am missing something on how to reduce the wear on these parts. The replacement pins and drive cases are wearing out too soon for me to continue replacing them.

US distributor says stock should be on hand very soon. I'm waiting myself. Looks like I'm getting 2 in the family. A 2wd and 4wd.

Still researching motors and esc units to buy. Any advice?

try a dry lube, graphite grease turns into a dirt polish and wears things fast.
