Thanks fellas, I have to run 361174 for the 16'. Because I changed the front bulk to the reinforced 16'. It makes the dimension a little different in the front brace...... I learned this the hard way, when I mounted the bulk n the tried to reinstall the top deck!! Had to Dremel out some material from the brace!

It will fit. The top front body lines are different so don't cut out to that line. Pre-fit the front and cut accordingly. Also, front mounting hole is further back on the '16 car so don't use it. You will have to mark your own hole after it's trimmed.

After running my xb4 today I noticed some roughness in the rear wheels, so I take the rear axles out to lube them and notice both the inner hub bearings are rough. So I remove the rubber seal to clean and lube them and they both just fall apart... The quality of the bearings seem poor. Thinking of getting some Boca bearings. Any other suggestions?

I run AVID bearings in mine, not had any problems with them & they're a good price.

Been running mine all winter long, since they were released and bearings are in great shape.

Exotek makes a set of shock caps for this car. Why don't you like the stock ones?

Hello everyone!

This is my first post on this site and I was hoping to be able to get some advice before I pull the trigger on a new electric buggy.

I originally wanted to get an 1/8th scale buggy, but I am now considering going with 1/10th scale simply because I think that might be able to reuse some electronics that are currently in a drift car. This ESC and motor didn't see much use at all so I would love to use them, but I'm not really familiar with the different types of ESC and motors out there. I would be very thankful if someone could give me an idea of how well this combo would perform in a XB4.

The ESC is a Speed Passion Reventon Pro 1.1 Brushless ESC (Laser Blue) and the Motor is a Yeah Racing Modified 540 Sensored Brushless Motor 13.5T 3000kv

The buggy will strictly be a basher for me and my son to play with. It will be used in grass mostly if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance!

Aluminum may look better in presenting the bling factor, however in my experience the composite caps seal much better.

Same thing with mine, replaced with some fast eddy bearings and no issues since

I would just order a set of the stock ones and replace them. I never really liked the aluminum shock caps on a wheeler.

Make sure you have the comp. shock caps fully tightened down. It's easy to think there fully tightened however apply a little more "swole" when tightening thus they will twist another 1/3rd to half turn tightening fully down.
I also soak the shock cap oring in shock oil for 30 minutes before installing.

If you really want aluminum the Spec R caps are nice and reasonable and are offered in either red or black with bleeder screws as well. I believe they are under $27 for a set of 4
