If you turn the front Xray bumper upside down and mount it that way the Bugle Boy bumper will fit.

Nice, I thought I was the only one running the DMX body.

Obviously you would need to remove the stock bumper, still can't mount it using 4 holes or without dremeling it to get it to sit flat against the chassis...

im sure just the front 2 holes would be fine for bumper support,prolly help a good bit with slight nose now landings to keep the car moving forward rather than sticking in,seems like the lowered ground clearance would be negligible though from both those front bumpers,guess it depends on what level you are driving it at?

With exotech rear hubs,what hole are most using? how high can you mount the balls using the outside holes and not effect roll center so the plastic ball links dont touch the tops of hubs and bind suspension on the down travel?

I am still confused.. ALL of my 14 car bulk heads, bumpers,towers etc is bolted on a 15 chassis instead..No extra or moved holes..

The 15 bumper is the only difference in the front, and it will fit a 14.. You can remove it.

Well, it says this on bugle boy's racing website:
Note: This bumper is designed for the pre-2015 model. It will fit the 2015 XB4 if you trim the countersink protrusions from the rearward mounting holes and only mount it using the two front screws. This has been found to be a secure enough mounting.
I'm sure they've tested this hence the reason for the note

I see where it is...

They are using the 2 middle holes from the bulkhead, which no longer are on the 15. The T bone bumper uses the 4 outer bulkhead bolts, not the center.

It's a tight fit but I think it's the best looking body for the car. I have the 2015 body on order just to see what it's like but probably won't switch because nothing looks like the DMX.

Default New 3mm alu. chassis and 2mm front top deck

The new 3mm alu. chassis and 2mm top deck that we have been using for some time on medium to high grip surfaces have now been released by Xray:

XRAY Graphite Front Upper Deck 2.0mm #361173
CNC-machined front upper deck shim made from premium 2mm graphite for maximum strength and long life. Recommended especially for use with the 3mm alu chassis when the standard long front top deck is not used.
• Premium graphite material
• 2mm thick
• Adjusts chassis flex
• Maximum strength
• Long life
• Combine with alu chassis

New XB4 Alu Chassis - Swiss 7075 T6 (3mm)

CNC-machined chassis made from high-quality 3mm Swiss 7075 T6 aluminum, strategically machined in low-stress areas to make it as light as possible without affecting strength or rigidity.

Designed and recommended for use at high-traction tracks without graphite front and rear top deck. The 3mm chassis increases corner speed and overall stability - a “must have” option part for serious racers. Optional graphite body mounts are recommended for easy body mounting.

Note:
Swiss 7075 T6 is an extremely rigid aluminum material. In some rare cases some small cracks may occur (for example, around openings or on edges where tension in the material is highest). Those small cracks are a natural effect and have no negative impact on the performance, reliability, or lifespan of the product, and as such are not considered to be a defect.

• Premium Swiss 7075 T6
• 3mm thick
• Super-strong
• Extra-stiff
• Increases cornering speed
• Increases stability
