Get the bezerk slipper eliminator i believe it uses Kimbrough spur gears so you can use a 69t

Thanks
You can fit up to a 33T pinion with the 75T spur.
Common modification is to run a 69T associated spur and pads with the spur drilled out a bit to fit. However I'm not sure if you can do that with the 3 pad slipper setup of the '16 and '17 cars (I'd like to know)
Other choice is to run the Bezerk slipper eliminator.

Default First dip Into the xray world ..... HELP

Coming over from the dark side (AE TLR) I just purchased a clean 2015xb4.
So I know I could read all 881pages to possibly find the answers but I thought I would throw it out there.

TURF medium/small track 15sec laps. Island and cruzin
13.5. But occasionally 10.5 motors

What if any changes must be made. It has 12mm.

What parts are interchangeable between model years

What is a good turf setup starting point.
Thank you all

What are people doing to get the weight down on the 2017 for stock? Currently weighing in at 1700g pretty much stock.

Are you running 13.5 or 17.5? If so, composite gears in the front and rear diffs is a good place to reduce weight. The ring and pinion gears. Also a slipper eliminator is another good tuning item.

Running 17.5. Have a slipper eliminator just waiting for the spur gears to arrive before setting it up. I will have a look at the composite gears. Thanks.

If I remember correctly I don't think that the 17 was released until February or March of 2017, but usually in December they start posting pics or teasers of it.

I bought my 16 XB6 at the end of November 2016 cause I didn't want to wait for the 17 model and was more interested in the 16

I can't imagine what changes they would make to it. The only thing I could see is moving the rear inner hinge pins inboard just like they did on the 17 XB2 Dirt Edition.

I am running Pro-line Wedges in the front and Pro-line Pin Points in the rear. Z3 compound all around. They have stupid traction.
