Picked up a 2015 roller for very cheap. Going to be running mod 7.5t motor on fairly large outdoor loose dirt track. I've got 3 questions (1)should I swap to a center diff?(2)want to pick up a few pinions what range should I get?(3) like I said earlier the roller is very clean with minimal use. Would it be worth updating parts to a current year if something breaks.

Anyone have an easy to drive setup for high traction soft wet clay?
I've got 1.4 sways on order should I be looking at springs too? Running 3 dot and 2 for
rear.
Raised my pills and widened pivot yesterday, that seemed to benefit? Cars still leaning heavily? And feels edgy..
Running 40, 37 oils on 1.6 and 1.7 2 holes.

Here's what I run for our track that is high bite clay.

If your track has a lot of tight turn or 180s then I found that this same setup worked but needed to run center hinge pin dots both Front & Rear

I ran the base clay set up last winter w/ 10/500,000/10. 3 dot front and 2 dot rears, 45 w/ a 1.6 and 40 w/ 1.7 in the rear w/ AE oils. I went to a 1.0 front sway w/ stock rear bar. This was on a med/high bite damp clay track but not watered during the race day. No washers on the steering knuckle ball studs, I found it very stable and easy to drive.

Yes, i've had my car below minimum weight. Had to add weight to be legal. Not worth it. Car is much easier to drive with the weight closer to 1650 to 1700 grams.

Hey everyone. Just picked up a XB4 16 and getting into 4WD offroad. I raced some onroad before but I am not sure how to set things up. What are the main things I should watch out for when setting up for 13.5 on a medium bite clay track? For example, what gear ratio should I start at? Thanks a lot.

26-28/78 is a good starting point. Adjust according to your track layout.

So last night finally tried the XB4 on carpet offroad and was better than I thought it would be, for never running on carpet, very fun and fast.
I chose to use TYs Poland setup and the car felt amazing and got better as I made more laps and getting used to running on carpet.

1st pack out hit 15.09 fast lap and strung together some 15.8s and 15.9s consistently.
The fast guy hot laps are 14.5 best lap.
Next pack out I dropped from 16 to 15 ride ht and then hit fast lap of 14.7 a couple times and strung together quite a few 15.2 laps in a row.

Now here is what will probably blow your mind, I was running faster, more consistent laps with 500k Center Diff, than the slipper. I plan to race this Saturday using the 500k diff and then next practice night run the slipper the whole time to see as well.

Got my car built and race last night local club race, no practice time, and brand new non-scrubbed in tires and got second against some pretty fast drivers. I'd say the car is good, I have a 2015 I liked, but this new one is on a whole other level. Running on high bite clay using Ty's nationals setup was near money. I imagine as the tires break in more, and the car becomes more edgy, changes will need to be made to calm it down, but I like what I was able to do with it. And only needing one "hop up" a 1.1mm sway bar was great. Will be interesting to see what car wins out when my YZ4-SF comes in, but either way i'm keeping this car. Maybe lighten it up, and go 13.5.

I was contemplating the XB4 2018 or a EB410. After reading this I made my decision. Have you run other buggies? If so how do they compare to the XB4 2018?

Thanks
