Thanks
I run my XB4 on a variety of rough outdoor tracks. I've found that adding copious amounts of weight to the rear of the car is vary helpful. It's a lightweight car in standard form and isn't the best bump handler out there, (In my experience that accolade goes to the Caster S10B)

Add the weights and it's pretty good. Also calms the steeryness down a bit.

Don't know why you people are hatin on slippers so much. The very reason I chose this buggy over the d413 (apart from supply issues) was because it has a slipper instead of centre diff. For someone like me, who runs the car both in and outdoors, mega grip carpet to low bite clay, adjusting a slipper is sooooo much easier than constantly pulling centre diff apart to change oil weight. Now complaining about ball diffs, that, I would understand.

Im not stripping pinion and ring gear im stripping rear diff gears and i think its cause im on throttle on the down side of a jump to early or too much.
Happened to practice days in a row
So if i put nt1 gears in there im liable to strip ring n pinion gears
I loosened the slipper withsame effect
Changed gears but not the stupid cross pin part.
Any ways got nt1 gears n metal pins coming and trying to source the yokomo ring n pinion gear
Rather it be more bullit proof if i strip spurs then oh well its a quick fix

Is the Yokomo a direct replacement or does something need modification?
