Hey, what's up with the "Invader" body?

I got one for my XXX4G+ and it doesn't fit worth a crap.

I assume it's made for another vehicle, right?

It is made for the original XXX-4 but it should still fit the G+ version. It is not a very desireable body because it does not cool the motor as well as the aurora body. Stick with the aurora body in the future.

I have a set of RC Screws. Also there's Tonys screws. I'm sure theres a few more, thats just a few. IMO the stock screws are very good, They seem higher grade than the "RCScrews" that I have

yes they are all the same diffs. the rears have a metal outdrive where the fronts are composite i think (unless you've done some modding)

Hi everyone!!

I'm getting a new xxx-4 G+ in a few days!!

Was wondering what hopups were really needed and where I could find them?

I think the front alloy pin carriers seem a good option to get...where can I find them???

Thanks!!

Loverc, Stormerhobbies.com still has some of the aluminum suspension pieces except for the front inner arm holders. It appears losi discontinued this part. I run the 5 degree one myself. https://www.ssl-stormerhobbies.com/c...ns&pn=LOSA9671
You didnt say if your car is brand new, because the newer cars now come with the long belt kit, and LCD front axles, and the plastic universal axle in the rear. Honestly, the LCD front axle is the most important. I had to add this to mine, and it is a night and day differance when turning. http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...l?sfs=7c95eb8c
Another thing to consider is the front one-way, this part also makes the car turn on a dime, but can be a hand full if you need to use the breaks alot. http://www.losipartshouse.com/servle...l?sfs=7c95eb8c
Lastly the front caster blocks are pretty weak, and this hobby shop sells an aluminum part to fix this area http://cgi.ebay.com/Losi-XX4-XXX4-al...QQcmdZViewItem

These seem to be the parts needed most, and have helped keep mine together.
