Jconcepts said they were working on a body. I don't know why nobody makes bodies for the xb4? If they made one when the 16 came out, they could of had at least 2 years worth of sales. If the 18 car isn't different that would be 3 years worth of sales from 1 body. I find the stock body a little weak, but I still crash more then I would like.

I can't comment yet on the durability of the stock body, but I can comment that it's $50 friken dollars to get a body and wings. A little ridiculous, even for xray.

This is the body I run on my '14. I mentioned it a few weeks ago in this post here. Basically I said it sorta fits the newer XB4s, but you have to trim out the back and raise the front body post.

Here is the Jcon Finnisher body on my '17....I had this on my '15 as well...On the '17, I went the Velcro route for mounting instead of body clips..

if you use body posts, you will need a extra rear size post to use on the front, and as others have said trim rear to fit

Is the 2014 XB4 still worth buying used for use in a indoor clay track?
