Default Is my XX4 a World Edition?

I bought this a while ago with a busted front belt. I finally got around to fixing it and took it out for a quick run. It's nice. Only thing I don't like is the limited battery options.

So, is this a World Edition? What do you think its worth? Thanks

Looks like a wce to me. What do you mean limited batteries? You can run a stick pack battery in there aswell if you dont want to run saddles. Not to many buggies can do that. Just put your rx and esc on the right side and either use your normal battery strap or cut/dremel down an ae t4/b4 battery brace and run stick pack on motor side.

Who makes that battery? Looks like the banana plug hole goes all the way through so that the battery can be flipped over.

Looks to me like that car was converted to a Worlds car. It has some of the old grey plastic and the plastic shock adjusters. Either way, it is a Worlds car.

Ha I haven't seen my pic of lipo mounted in for a while

To that battery brace - I used hacksaw if I remember right to shorten it. You also need to open up hole on side and cut it on the other side as it's too wide.
If you can find some foam pad or something like that to prevent battery sliding on chassis - deffo tape it on chassis - my battery did tend to move towards motor. I didn't have any issues while I ran it but to be on safe side I recommend it.

I did only one race with car as you see in pics, then I switched to Cat, but my dad continued running it and it was good as you see it for whole season without any issues.

Those were the first LRP 28C 5300mAH Lipos. That's what I used at time. anyway those bumps on bottom fouled with middle where battery strap is retained. Had to do some sanding.

It's deffo WE. TO how much it worth - depends on condition. I got my XX4's from here for about 100-140 per car and also got quite a lot of spares 3 years ago. So figure out.

I would recommend to simply run it. Yes you need to modify and bulletproof it a bit but it's awesome car.

The Losi XX4 World Edition is the best 4WD car ever made.

Now Losi has created a wonderful and powerful 2WD, I am confident that the Losi Team will delivery a brand new 4WD concept for next future.

Please Todd, Jukka and all Losi guys thinking about it.

I'm still using my XX4...I'm so happy.

What is the difference between a xx4 and WE ? is it just graphite parts and threaded shocks ?

Thanks

Hi,
at a glance the difference are :

- In the WE the clicker is equipped with a softer spring to reduce drag when free-wheeling.

- All the World's car structural molded parts including the suspension arms and shock towers are made of Losi's graphite/plastic composite material.

- The chassis is slotted to lower batteries (lower CG) and an extra slot the left-side pack to be moved forward on the chassis (no longer use with Lipo batteries).

- The motor plate has been retooled to hold the motor as low as possible.

- The shock include threaded bodies, titanium-nitride shock shafts, new springs orange/yellow. The front shocks has tiny internal springs.

- New rear hubs, stronger front bulk-head and rear arm mounts.

- Sealed ball bearings, the inner Ackerman positions are used.

- Lunsford titanium tie-rods are equipment the XX4 World Edition.

I hope it is useful. Please contact me or the forum for any further information.

Regards,
Marco
