the XB4_16 looks amazing and i had the possibility to test the XB4_15 on my local track a few times and really liked it.

right now i just have one question:

are there yellow xray wheels with 14mm hex coming in the near future?
we all know that yellow wheels are way faster than the white ones

cheers

DE wheels for Durango's , looks like only rears tho..

JC for 12mm and 60mm tires.

I heard RC America received the 16 XB4 kits today as well.

Question: I heard that the 16 comes standard with the once optional graphite 2+4 satellite gears? Not positive but RC disco has them listed as a standard part for the 16 XB4.

I hope this is correct as I ran them as upgrade parts in my 15 and the were excellent.

Suby is correct! Just give them a call as they have great customer service. Number is on their website and I believe they are located in Dallas. You can pay them over the phone or they can send a request for payment, thus sending request to ones PayPal.

I was wondering if there is anything I need to look for in the book or build that someone has caught that wasnt right or printed right? any info ahead of time would be great.

You will experience no issue during the build.
Good tools, weight scale for diff oil. Take some time to sand shocks towers, especially front and put some cyano there to.
Everything is well explained with oil weight to put in and slipper setup.

I did soak the orings in shock oil like Bentka said and did oil each bearings with good quality bearing lube taking care to wipe any excess oil.
