Yup my thoughts too for now. Will see how people get on with the upgrade pack.

Better get back to rebuilding my FS2 and DB1 to sell and bank rather than spend

So for now RB6 and FS2 SP for 2013

The set includes:
- Reinforced Front Bulkhead V2
- Differential Bevel Gear 35T Front & Rear - V2
- Front Shock Tower Protector
- Rear Shock Tower Roll Center Reinforcement
- Replacement Diff Satelitte Gears (no change, just free spare)

Thank you Mario. So, how do I register to receive the upgrade package?

Through the shop you bought it from. I'm guessing 2-3 weeks for them to be here.

Packages will be sent to the distributors where the original kits were shipped, from which point, the distributors will forward them to the shops who ordered the XB4 kits...

You can make arrangements for receiving your update pack through the shop where you originally purchased your XB4

I haven't gotten mine to the track yet...but the only changes I've heard of from the base setup at my track is 23 for ride height and a weird combo on the chassis mixing up the screws...not sure on the slipper
Most people think the box setup is a good base. The other XB driver here is going a completely different direction in tuning than I am but we drive totally differently.
pinion 23-24
slipper on the loose setting (it ain't slippin)
low works good, I get chassis slap in one spot, need a tiny bit more pack
The chassis is pretty flexi, with the 4 corner screws its similar to my ZX5
rippin car enjoy it

THANK YOU XRAY FOR THE UPGRRADE KIT !!!
I need two please

Nice.

I wonder if they will even exchange my NIP front and rear bulkheads for the V2 versions? I'd hate to eat $40 on spare old ones when new ones are coming.

In a hobby where "blame the customer" is many companies' standard operating procedure, this is a great development from Xray.
