There has got to be an answer to this!
Thats what I was thinking.. Check dogbone length..

I was thinking shocks still, as in the piston was bottoming out on one side. I was not looking at the dogbone hitting the inside of the cup.

Is your diff shimmed to one side for gear mesh?

My pin hardly passes center of the outdrive.

on this note, the inside notches for my dogbones are Inside/even with the plastic diff case. Yours look to be outside.

I run associated x-rings in my xb4. Much better seal than the o-rings. My o-rings leaked after every run. The x-rings stay nice and dry!

I use the the xray spacers with the AE x-rings. They work very well! No leaks at all. No shock shaft restriction either.

Its a rear end from 2015.

It just depends what side you are looking at. I have never notice that before. That is probable why Kevin car bottoms out on the right side first.

Thanks for the feedback guys, if I have time I will be pulling the bones out this evening to get some measurements, I'm pretty sure that is the issue.

The wheels are DE for a DEX410, they are the right size, same size as the wheels on my 22, with the same tires on them.

Diff is not shimmed, and the notch on the gear side just comes into the plastic, while the other side is just a hair farther out. I pulled the diff and flipped it around in the case just to see, and the non-gear side protruded out just a hair more either way. I don't think that's nearly enough to be causing this issue, just enough to make one side more noticeable.

Tektronix, thanks for the tip on the o-rings, I have some TLR x-rings, wonder if they're the same, if not maybe I'll get some Associated ones.

At this point I'm willing to bet I'll find the shafts are longer than 68mm, we'll see.

Hi again

Checked our car today, using the inserts in the lower middle position, no issue what so ever. This was with 2,5 degrees of camber.

So you have to have an unfortunate QC issue. I can see four possible problem areas.

Diff out drive notches
Drive shaft length
Outer drive shaft
Seating of inner bearing in hub





The AE X-rings you mention, is that the B5 version?

Losi xrings are for 3.5mm shafts. Xray are 3mm. Get the AE ones

Slakr is correct. I just bought both 7 and 9mm and the 7mm put the width where the stock wheels are.
