Ran my 16 xb4 w/ medium plastics on some outdoor clay yesterday. Track was hard packed w/ dust and wouldn't form any kind of blue/black groove. I ran the Tessman desert classic set up that I was advised to use in this thread. Not the whole set up but most of it (not the same diff fluids/ran a center diff/few other things). Car was pretty darn great, rear end was almost too hooked up when tires were hooking up good. I have my servo speed turned way down and expo's turned way down. Car was super easy to drive and could of probably been on pace w/ the leader in the right hands. Best outdoor experience so far w/ a 4wd buggy. Bumped up to the A finished 6th, first time running at that track. As normal no breakages

Default Need Steel Drive and differential bevel gears

Running on turf and despite having the slipper setting to the manual specs, I think the slipper was too tight and my drive and diff bevel gears are starting to grind. I have the slipper set as loose as it will allow and I still don't really feel it slipping. That being said, the steel bevel drive (X-RAY 365134) and steel bevel diff gear (XRA364955) are out of stock everywhere. Anyone know where I can order them in the U.S.

On a related note, another XB4 driver at this track said he had to sand his slipper spring down on each end in order to get it short eniugh for full adjustment so that it could be set to slip. Has anyone else experienced this?

Have tried squeezing the spring with pliers? Mine is set all the way loose and it slips just right, but it was not slipping that good at first.

Default Medium plastics

Do you really notice the difference between running medium chass guards and medium chassis braces as oposed to running the hard plastics?

Flex creates grip.

I run on a wet dirt track. I ran my buggy with all hard plastics and was washing out every time I turn a corner. I started changing parts to medium. First, the arms... worked but need more flex to get traction... took out 2 screws from the center brace..... better.... changed the side guards to medium.....works now.

I ran the hard plastics during the winter on indoor med/high grip. Right before outdoor season started I put the medium plastics on. So I never tried hard plastics outdoors. I started outdoor season w/ 500k in the center and it was close to a 2wd. I lowered the center diff fluid 90% thinner and I have plenty of drive out of turns/ tires wear evenly. A team driver told me to lower the diff fluid to close to single digits and thicker in the rear then the front. He said it will sound crazy but do it and he was right car is hooked up.

I will be running on clay. Curious if these do hold up with the center slipper???

I plan on running 13.5 mainly. Maybe some mod.

Thx!

I run them in mine with a 5.5 and 1million in the center diff. They held up all last season at Innovative, a bit lower traction than you have at Dirt Heaven but you should be fine.

Depending on the bulkhead fit sometimes adding a shim behind the composite pinion helps prevent any issues with the ring / pinion.
