You could update the chassis but you'd need a number of parts. Chassis, side pods, center bulkheads, chassis braces, steering spacers and upper plate, servo mounts, battery mount, and some hardware. Diffs and suspension should bolt on no problem.

That's awesome and gives me some hope. I'm not ready to give up on my '14 yet. I still have some areas where I know I can get faster. I did finish with the highest consistency percentage in our Super Stock A-main, but slow and steady doesn't get you on the podium. LOL. The A had the following finish order:

XB4 '16
XB4 '16
XB4 '16
XB4 '16
B44.3
XB4 '14 (me)
XB4 '16
Schuey K2 (broke)

I have the racers edge horn on my '16 and just ordered another for my xb2. They are the exact size as the X-ray plastic ones and the holes lines up perfect.
Leads me to a question I have about the steering setup. I ordered the exotek steering rack arm for my xb2 but I got the xray 4 hole alum one for my xb4... anyone run that?i just noticed that on the stock one there is a small section that is thicker at the end where the steering turnbuckle connects but the X-ray alum version is just a flat piece all the way across. Will I need to use some shim to get the turnbuckle at the same angle as stock or doesn't the angle of that matter? I shoulda got the exotek cause it is an exact replica of the plastic stock arm.

As mentioned above the Racers edge horn fits perfect.

He was probably posting a link to show you the style and then you can find the one that works for 25T spline.

If you search Amain for 25T servo horn you should see quite a few choices.
or search servo horn and then on left side of screen usually to can refine the search by picking 25T

Use one of the inner holes, Or drill and tap a new one, and cut/grind the excess off with a dremel.
