Yes. I moved front and rear arms inward for a shorter wheel base.

Let us know what you think. I've tried some things to get this thing to rotate like a 1/8 buggy but I can't seem to do it.

Where are you shaving arms at ,and how much cause I'm having same problem of car slipping out on rear end exiting corners? Are you shaving inside and outside of arms where hindge pins are to add more spacers so wheel base is shorter. If you could text pics to me that would be great. 5862605520 thx.

Hey Kyosho dudes. Is this car stubborn or does it break often and wear down faster then other models, like the 1/8 scale ? I have seen it on the track and i love this car. Enjoy

I have had the car about a month now and it doesn't show any major wear . I have probably put about 20+ runs on it without any damage .

I have had some unbelievable crashes with this thing and not a broken part yet. Today, a SCT hit me full tilt with me sitting still. He clipped my front wheel. His front arm broke but still no broken parts for me.

I finally broke my first piece last night a steering knuckle. It was a pretty hard hit with a board so I wasn't surprised.

Default Ball Diffs

My rear ball diff gear melted. The balls were stuck in the nylon gear. I built the rear and front the same way I build rb6 ball diffs. Broke them both in. After three race nights this happened. I took apart the diff, cleaned all parts, replaced the nylon gear and rebuilt, feels pretty good.

What would cause the diff to melt down, maybe build too tight?

The Black one is the new stronger one. But the white is also very strong, and will last for a long time if the gearbox is shimed corectly.

Not sure about that but my rear ball diff is getting crunchy feeling. Front is still smooth, so it seems the rear will wear out quicker then the front. I'm gonna try gear diffs instead of rebuilding the ball diffs. I need to cash in my 401k first to buy those expensive diffs. Lol

hahaha @401k its cheaper than an xray bro and miles better $$ spent, ask me how I know :P. My car has only got two race days on the ball diffs, but for the winter gonna rebuild with a bfast carbide/ceramic thrust kit.

What's your opinion on the ZX6 vs XB4? I'm new to the 1/10 4wd and thinking about trying the XB4 for comparison.
