The first DCJ tested on Lee's were Spec R XB4 front DCJ. I guess a lot of dremeling was required to make the work. DJ barrel was tight fight within the caster blocks.

Double Cardane Joint Rotation is much smoother than your CVD, CVA, Swingshafts. Less chattering on turns, more responsive smoother turning, jumps and lands better plus better air control or I should say control in the air.

so I found these http://www.superiorhobbies.com/store...ing+Shaft++XB4 part #SBG-X11101 . I was about to order them but cant figure out if these are the front or rear ones. The pic makes them look like they are the longer front ones.. Do you happen to know how I can find the rear xb4 dcj?

I think the most common pistons people run are the yokomo Part# YOKBM-S162 front and Part# YOKBM-S172 rear . I like the vrp ones too though they work good in the dirt .

Definitely go with the VRP pistons. 1.6 front 1.7 rear is a great combo also the 1.3 for the rear is a great choice.

Rear XB4 DCJ are called ECS and are 68mm. For front DCJ wait for Yokomo to release as modifying SpecR XB4 is a pain and when modified they still are not optimal.

You will need the new rear hubs. 2 piece hub as the camber carrier can be flipped.

Those are fronts. SpecR only makes front DCJ for the XB4 at 81mm.

DCJ are normally more important in the front however having both front and rears in your wheeler is amazing. The difference is so noticeable.
