I run on medium-high bite tracks if that helps out.

Also contemplating switching brands, I've been running the D413 for about 1.5 yrs
wait are you running the xb4 or the d413? the xb4 does have options for steel gears and hardened alum diff pins. google is your friend or the xray website.

ok btw dont be afraid of the composite gears, they're no problems with them they infact have advantages in some cases and theres a graphite blend as well.

I ran a d413 and it was good but got tired of bending screws at the hinge pin holder and how much work it was to change diff fluids. The XB4 imo outperforms the d413 in nearly every way. Way easier to maintain, more durable (have only broken 1 part in 9 months) and haven't had to replace any parts due to wear. It is also a better car out of the box, no option parts needed to be competitive. With hing pin inserts, you can infinitely adjust the car.

Yes, some of the issues, LOL

Good to hear about the Xb4 right out of the box. I would probably get the Center Diff, since I'm so used to having them.

How are you guys mounting your fans behind the motor? theres not much room for a fan mount or heatsink on the top or side with the body and rear shaft so close.

Do you plug it directly to the receiver?
Or solder it to the ecs ?
What is the best way

Solder it to the + & - terminals of the ESC.

Into the esc can give more voltage I plug mine into the rx depends how much cooling you need what voltage you're running your esc at and what is the safe voltage range for your fan...

So on the xray setup sheets, if it lists a 2mm shim under the camber link stud, is this 2mm plus the conical washer that is 2mm or is that meaning just the 2mm conical washer?

Shim is a shim

So any shim conical or not is added up.

It was the front acutally, I'm looking at the latest Bayer setup. I also noticed he was using a 5mm shim for the bumpsteer? I'm assuming he has to use a longer stud for that or why such a large shim.

And thanks Bent and Lyons for some of the great info on this thread! I will start dumbing up the XB2 thread pretty soon so stay tuned.
