Also center shock position on rear tower, 1.2mm rear sway bar, and rear hubs and arms all the way forward. 21mm ride height.

Ronzo,

There are four holes on the BugleBoy front bumper. They all are counter sunk with the backside of the holes protruding. The back 2 hole protrusions can be taking off with a hobby knife as well. Leave the front 2 as the set the bumper into the chassis holes.

Xray XB4 thread-image.jpg

Bugleboy Front bumper - back hole sets removed thus to lay flush of 2015 XB4 Chassis. One can fill the back holes with epoxy, or cover with chassis skin, or one could cut the back half of the bumpers chassis flat thus removing the unusable holes.

Everyone have a nice weekend as I hope the weather in your area allows for a great outdoor track time.

Anyone have any problems with the pinion gear on the center drive shafts? Part number 365134. My car is brand new and when putting it in the gear box and putting in the bearings and tightening it down I have like 1mm of play going front and back. The rear one is fine. So I took the rear pinion out and put it in the front and the play went away. So I narrowed it down to the gear . I can literally take the center drive shaft and move back and forth a good 1-2mm. Kind of hard to explain typing .

If you look inside the gear can you see a step or area that wasn't molded correctly that would keep it from seating all the way on the shaft? Maybe you can clean it up with a dremel or hobby knife.

Can anyone give me a few options as to where to find parts? Stormer is the only place I've really found, where else can I look?

Here are a couple other U.S. based online Hobby Shops that carry XB4 parts

Absolute Hobbyz, they already have the new 3mm chassis available. I believe they are located in New Jersey.
GS Hobby in Arkansas carries XB4 parts

Love the gear diff in the XB4. No plans to ever go back to a slipper. My 15 with a slipper was better than the 14 or 13, but its twice as good with the gear diff. I went with 100k in the center and am very happy with it!
