Looking for some setup help. Our local track is a topsoil/clay mix. Barcode type tires work well, it’s a low-med bite track. My setup is 100% clay except for the below changes:
1. Kyosho shocks (droop is same as stock)
2. Pistons and oil 1.6 37.5f 1.7 30R
3. Front Kyosho yellow (3.6) rear Kyosho Red (2.23)
4. Ride ht 21f 20r
The car feels pretty good. It’s a little twitchy and the rear end is loose on exit. I was thinking about maybe locking the rear in with 3.5 toe. Any suggestion would be great!

Thanks,
Rocky
BTW The Axial collar works perfect to help contain the CVD pin.

Anyone had any success finding a non cab-forward body to fit the XB4 yet? Anyone know of anyone making one?

yoko one fits. Its a bit loose on the rear so need to velcro it up. All other B44 type shells will have same problem since the rear of this car tapers. The others are more rectangular (b44.2, K1, bmax4).

So you are saying the K1, 44.2 bodies don't fit or do fit?

I've tried a standard B44 body and as was mentioned it doesn't hug the back of the chassis well. Which Yok body please?

One slight step above that xfactory b4 body tho.
Now that may be the worst body I've seen yet

I just bought the yoko body and all the rest are rectangular as well. So the other two is guess work. The yoko has to be trimmed a lot and still has servo horn clearance issues. That in addition to having to use velcro in the back since the xb4 tapers near the saddles while the other cars are the same width as the front.
