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
I run an 8.5 on a small indoor track. Running the stock spur w/22 pinion. Went to 6 hole 1.0 piston w/losi 30oil in rear. 6 hole 1.1 piston w/34.5 oil front
Slipper is just little loose by feel. 26mm rear 25mm front rideheight. I took all the screws out o the bottom for flex. I removed both swaybars. Went to 4k diff oil in front, 1k diff oil in rear. Car was best its been yet!! First time I could push the car hard I've not had problems w/gears stripping, or shocks leaking. But I did break rear shock tower @ camberlink ball. I've since replaced them w/ TeamSR CF 4mm and it seems bullit proof now! Glad Xray addressed the issues.

Hideeho
I have been planning to get a wheeler in the next month or so. I have been debating between the b44.2 & the xb4, with a strong lean towards the AE due to the issues with the Xray.

Now with Xray making a move like that, I'm all about the xb4 when I get one!

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)

This is why I was ok with buy the car to begin with. I knew that if there were any issues that came up XRAY would handle them.

The box clay setup is pretty dialed out the box. Only changes I made was increasing the track width and running 1.6 sway bars front and rear. Outside hole on rear up hub carriers. I went down to 1.2 in front which gave a little bit better steering. My home track has a ton of traction. So much we race on slicks now. Slipper set about 6.75mm.

I will be testing a few changes on Sunday though. Went back to standard track width, 5k in rear diff and 1.2 all around.

This car is so easy to drive it ain't funny. Extremely stable for a wheeler, at least compared to my Dex. On my DEX I was running like 75% Dual Rate, Expo was like -50 and the car still was really twitchy.

I'm pretty much running at 0 dual rate and -10 expo. Car still drove like it was a slot car. Rear was planted to track. About the only thing I was trying to correct was get slightly more on power steering in a chicane as I felt it was pushing a bit too much in that of the track.

Exactly as I would recommend.....contact the shop where you purchased the kit

Are you all mounting the servo directly with the 38 screws or are you putting a 371 washer on top? (The XRAY washers under the front ballstud are 361)

The head on the 38 screw doesn't have much area to bite onto the servo ear so it looks like it could mangle up the plastic. I'm just used to using washers.

Kudos to XRAY for this. They worked hard to get everyone's kits to them before Christmas, took a well earned break, and upon returning to work in the new year re-tooled and remoulded new parts to fix the issues some people have had. I have to say, I think the issues have been few and far between in the grand scheme of things, but what xray has done in a week would have taken some companies months to do. Rumor has it parts are making their way out of the factory anytime soon.

yep truly outstanding support. I am used to sending back broken parts with proof of purchase etc for defective stuff!! This is awesome.

So just to reiterate, the ball stud support is only for the rear? Is it not also for the fronts? And the shock reinforcement also only for fronts? Guess what I want is to order a spare ballstud support for the front as well once they got part # if they not supplying them....

Hasn't the trend been for the rear camber link mount to snap and not the fronts ?
Similarly broken towers seem to be mostly fronts. Same parts, curious.
