Yep, you know nothing about 4wd's then. Not all 4wd buggies push like mad. Losi's XX-4 and Xfactory's X-5 has a ton of steering. The rear motor placement of the XXX-4 makes it push some, it is not the fact it is 4wd. This can be changed by going to a oneway diff in the front though.

Yes, you can put a xxx-s 1-way in the diff, others could probably tell you better than I. I think it just comes in a kit. #losa3245. I dont run one because i didn't think it was going to help my racing abilitys I'm not even sure what they would help...(If someone could fill me in I would greatly appreciate it!).

*On another note* Has any one seen the front alum inner pivot mounts? Did they quite making these?

Peace.

I do not think they stop making the inner pivot mounts. Frankly, I would not use them. If you use aluminum on the outside pivot brace and inside pivot mounts then the only thing that will break is the Diff cover or chassis. It is alot easier to just replace the graphite inner pivot mounts and use only a aluminum pivot brace. It is still plenty strong with this setup.

The XXX-4 will not accept a center oneway due to the single belt drivetrain. A dual belt would be needed for this. Instead you use a one-way diff in place of the front diff. A oneway diff allows the front wheels to disengage under braking and rolling. This greatly increases the intial turn-in of the car and allows rear wheel breaking to help the car pivot better in the turns. It is not easier to drive but faster on some tracks than full time 4wd and a regular diff.

do you have a xx-4 or a xxx-4 the xxx-4 should come with all the hopups unless they made a plastic car RTR which I dont think they did. if you can posts some pics
