Brushless works fine on the XXX-4. We have a few xxx-4s running novak 6.5 systems at our track. They are very fast.

I have seen the XXX4 run at Competition Hobbies in Tucson and the thing was great on the jumps.

The Gtb will fit in the place behind the motor but you have to tie the power cap up and out of way.

About the beefy shock towers,
I wouldn't recommend them.
It will probably cost you a broken chassis like mine and others I have seen
You will more than likely break the front ear that the tower bolts to.
I would rather replace the towers than another chassis
Cheaper and ALOT less work!
Mine is still down cuz of that mistake.

I cracked my first chassis on my XXX4, but that is the learning curve to driving a new car.

Through a trade/buyout, we recently acquired a xxx4. The race testing is going well at this point and I feel it will be a great addition to the team stable.
The aluminum hinge pin braces seem to be the primary must have item on the g+ as the graphite braces snap very easily.
In my opinion the design of the slipper unit on this buggy was not designed with brushless/lipo power in mind. From what I can tell so far when using a high powered brushless system on the xxx4, your better off locking down the slipper. It slips much too easy if you try to truly use it with alot of horsepower. However, we are still in the testing phase and may draw different conclusions regarding the slipper in the future. For now I have it locked down, but may try something different soon. I am NOT saying that everyone needs to lock theirs down by any means, but that is what I chose to do ...for now.
In my opinion there is probably enough "give" in the belt drive system and slippage in the diffs that locking the slipper isn't that big of a deal and may very well be the best way to avoid race ending issues or hassles.
Time will tell...
Overall, I think I am going to like the car and it is proving itself competitive locally with the other brands too. And this is coming from a long time AE racer.

I think I mentioned this before about the slipper.. If you run it too loose for even a few laps, the pads will glaze and that's that! You will never be able to lock it down or get it to grab. You will have to change it.

I have run mine with a 3.5bl and 9x2 brushed... no probs with the slipper.
