KC,
500k in center diff was the ticket for ours.

Maybe at practice this week, I'll try the 500k center diff and see how that feels.

KC when i have my xb4 15 i prefer to run slipper at center better for traction @ MIMI. I have center diff for me before running 1million, 500K and 300k center diff oil but i like the slipper. If you want the oil i can give you free.

Considering the car won the worlds with a guy who had only run a handful of off-road races prior, I think he will do really well.

Not being negative, I am actually excited to see how Ty does in 1/10 with more sorted cars.

yeah i mean hot bodies has been great as of late but they do seem a tad off of what someone like Ty should be running - I'm happy to have him on the team.

That is just the release of info tomorrow not the actual car release but as we have seen the car is not long to follow.


Ty will be fast Maybe now we will actually get some attention on the car needs for conditions outside of Europe. Excited to see how he does, his presence should help to lift the Xray offroad program as a whole.

He's got to be lovin having a great platform to go to Reedy with. You could see at NATS that the HB was holding him back.
