I see the ECS driveshafts are released but can find where to buy them. Does anyone have a link or info on where I can purchase them. Thanks

TheXRAY-Shop Austria has them. You need to create an account. There basically $165 for 2 rears and 2 fronts plus around $25 shipping. Gerhard has just about every XB4 part and if not they usually will have them within a week.

Not saying they wont work but I tried them once and the front end was fine but I could not get appropriate ride height in the rear that I needed. The AE rear buggy spring is longer than the Xray rear buggy spring.

Can someone please explain what the difference is between the DOT springs vs the STRIPES springs for the XB4?

All info is in the manual

Download it here:

http://www.teamxray.com/xb4/2016/download/

DOT = linear

STRIPES = progressive

If you use the associated springs cups, the springs will work fine.

It is completely different. Higher speeds and you need much higher reaction times. I would drive someone elses first as they are expensive

Anyone whom is wanting a BugleBoy Racing front skid/bumper for their XB4, you may want to go to BugleBoy Racing's website as I believe there is only 5 XB4 front skid/bumpers remaining from their most recent run. Thomas at BugleBoy is a top notch fella. If they happen to be sold out, just drop him an email as he can produce more very quickly.
