Hey, can anyone tell what should I do with this? I have the SS5800 brushless on my buggy but sometimes when I run it, the belt gets dislocated or removed. This usually happens when I run it on long straights. It happened 3 times already. any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Since the XXX4 shares the same drivetrain as the XXXS...I'm pretty sure it's probably just that your belts might be too loose. I haven't run my XXX4 but have raced a XXXS for awhile.

Does anyone know what other parts from the XXXS are compatible with the XXX4?

Diffs bearings and pullys pretty much. Everything else will bolt on except belt, battery strap and chassis but that is because of the different length. Most of the parts are different for geometry of off road use and track width. Not much is shared really. The spur gears can be used if you don't mind no slipper.

My xxx4's belt is already tight. I have a HDD belt and I set the tensioner to the tightest. I'll just try thread locking the screws in the tensioner arm since i found it goes loose when the belt gets dislocated.

Not exactly. Depending on the size of the track you might have a heck of a time getting the gearing to where you previously had it with the XXX-4(92 or 94 tooth) spur. This is because the drive pulley for the belt has 3 or 4 more teeth(I think it's something like 23 vs 19). And the bearings are different I believe. I bought the gear for the XXX-S since I was sick of dealing with the slipper, but since I run on a pretty tight track, I found it'd require me to run something like an 11 tooth pinion, which I didn't find acceptable.

Default xxx-4

hey guys, got a question about using a one-way on the xxx-4. i picked one up used that had the diff in it and he gave me the one way. tonight i installed the one-way. but my question is, do the outdrives slide in and out? i am just worried about coming off a jump with the shocks in the downstroke, that the outdrives will pop out? any input would greatly help.

thanks

Yes they slide in and out. But unless you break a spindle or hub carrier they won't slide out. Atleast thats the only time I've had that problem.

Exclamation xxx-4

i was wondering , i heard losi is discontinuing the regular xxx-4...is that correct?

how long will i be able to get parts? and with all the difficulties with the xxx-4 is it really worth trying to keep and race it.

Drive it like an electric buggy instead of monster tuck and there won't be anywhere near the issues. As soon as I stopped driving mine stupid, I had alot less problems. After a few worthwhile option peices such as the pivot blocks in aluminum and there won't be any issue.

And I love my XXX4 and won't get rid of it but I am looking for something different. If the XXX4 isn't being discontinued I'll experiment now. If it is, I want to go out and buy parts.

Yes, the parts do interchange. If you're a rougher driver just get the regular parts. If you are a little smoother get the graphite ones. A little more ridgid and will be beter but not quite as durable. Close but the regular parts have a little more give to them.
