Also just wanted to verify that part no. 369703 is the body with the fin piece in the back (if you know what I'm referring to). Thanks again for your help.
Check out the first post. I put the offset and wheel information there.

I was looking for the exotek info you posted there. Thanks.
I may have missed it but did you say if the xray 12mm wheels were 2.2?
You did say ppl used 22-4 front 12mm wheels and standard 12mm rears. What do you mean by standard 12mm? Just the xray wheels you mean? I like to just stick to one brand front and rear to make it easy for myself. Lol
But I just need to find out if the 12mm X-rays are 2.2 or 2.4 so ican order tires at the same time I order wheels

Xray wheels are all 2.2.

If you buy them in 10 pack they will be cheaper as well.

That first link isn't working... But should the front be 5.5mm and te rear 7mm exotek 12mm hexes? Then front and rear wheels you use de racing 22-4 wheels? Just so I am 100% clear.
That is a killer paint job by the way!!

Cool, thanks... I was thinking about trying some chain link tires. Is the "EVO" brand aka's 60mm tire? Cause they don't specify sizes for those.

They have been, but just recently released in 2.2, a good thing IMO.

AFAIK, rear wheels are all one standard offset. You can use either 2.2 or 60mm wheels from any brand on the back of the XB4.

I run AKA EVO wheels and tires, but that's just a preference. Most wheels will be 2.2" since that was the original size until the "EVO" style released by AKA.

That is not correct.

There are several different offsets for rear wheels jus like there are for front wheels….unfortunately.

The JC body is for the '13 and '14 saddle pack layout and chassis

Thanks guys. Not really sure how to tell what Evo tires are 60mm and which are 2.2. The one site I was at had the premounts listed as 2.2 but didn't specify what size for just the tires in unmounted tire description. I just went with jc dirt webs for now.
I also ordered the 5.5 mm and 9mm exotek 12mm hexes and de speedline 22-4
Wheels. Hope it all goes together without issue.
Thank you everyone for all the responses.
