i use them in the front. as mentioned they're not worth the cost, maintenance, and hassle for the performance gain in the rear.

They are a good option for the rear if you really need to free it up maybe for more traction in super slick situations.

otherwise the fronts eliminate some of the chattter you might get at full lock steering. thats the advantage but they do wear quickly. Particularly the barrels but you can buy just those pieces as needed.

inner barrel inserts or outer barrels?

i find if you shrink wrap them and use dry lube and replace pins frequently - wear isn't too bad

I didn't even get my info the our Australian import, because some clown from Europe posted it first, when he probably shouldn't have.

XB4 All-new 2017 Specs:
� Currently the best performing 1/10 4WD off-road car: World Champion, European Champion, EOS Champion and dozens of National champion titles
� Platform remains the same with almost all parts being compatible
� 2017 version was focused on fine improvement of small details making the car an absolute winner straight out of the box
� Supsension parts: arms, uprights and c-hubs are now moulded from hard material for increased stability and increased corner speed
� Independent servo mount to eliminate chassis tweak and to increase traction of the car
� New front shock tower with extra inner shock position for even more fine set-up tuning
� Graphite rear chassis brace will strenghten the rear of the car that increases stability and rotation in corners
� New 12mm alu wheel hubs instead of 14mm
� New front and rear wheels with 12mm hex instead of 14mm
� Velcro tape for dust-free mounting of body to the car
� New center upper deck with new design to improve center flex of the car
� New shorter shock springs for increased ride height adjustment range necessary especially for carpet tracks
� New Delrin shock pistons 1.6 and 1.7mm like recently included in the XB2C

The rear chassis brace and hard plastics are already option parts that I have. I believe the rear chassis brace is the carbon fiber piece but I might be wrong.

if anything hard plastics arent really an upgrade to me. i run medium plastics on clay and graphite on carpet - and i will continue to do so. ill still probably get the car anyway.
