I think the XXX4 is a great car. I haven't ran mine in a few months (since getting a Bj4 WE--so much fun) but I don't intend to sell it any time soon--since I just got an LRP 6.5 brushless setup I am going to put my 9x1 Fantom and brushed ESC in the XXX4.

Even with a 19 turn motor my slipper would loosen when it was brand new. IMO the best fix is not locking the slipper out (because then your diffs will wear alot more) but getting the "updated" tensioner arm--the updated tensioner is more structurally sound and is supported on both sides by bearings--instead of the stock one which only has a bearing on one side of the idler. Ever since I installed the updated arm I have had zero problems with my slipper loosening--no need to lock it out. The tensioner comes with the yellow belt---so older cars will benefit from that as well.

The only major shortcoming to the xxx4 is the severely limited steering lock---it really affects things. I know there are some fixes for that, however.

Even the latest XXX4-G+ kits don't come stock with the updated tensioner. you will have to buy it seperate--check link below:

Compare that to the original stock tensioner: (I know it says xxxs but its the same part)
