I was thinking of adding anti-squat and thickening my front shock oil, similar to what you have.
In general, I have found that the XB4 is a lot like the XB9 in the sense that both cars really like to run quite a bit of anti-squat. Both chassis react really well to the change and are much easier to drive.

7 year old Malin practices before finals on Sunday at round #3 of the 2012/2013 JConcepts Challenge.

She's only been driving R/C cars since beginning of November and this is her second race (first was the PetitRC Race in mid January) with her XB4 she got for Christmas.

Here's a short clip for starters

Impressive she can drive for sure esp after just a few months. You should have seen me 3 months after I started driving RC cars (replacing parts was 85% driving the rest), wish her best luck.

Gigabytes are awesome. Slightly more fwd grip than the proline holeshot rubber and a bit longer lasting. HB and Proline are the only two rubber compounds which hook up crazy well on our clay track for 2wd at least. Jconcepts green/gold a close second, and followed by AKA SS. Panther S/SS Clay all don't work well without juicing. AKA lasts the longest though. Indoor wet clay which get a black groove by the time the bmains are done!

Thanks.......she really has come a long way in just a very short time.
Seeing her race is even more impressive though......navigating through traffic like it wasn't even there.

I'll have some videos from qualifying where she won all of her heats (except for the first when her new Reedys decided to give in) and lapping everyone in doing so.
She qualified 6th for the 3 x A-finals (out of 20 starters) and ended up 5th with just a couple of tenths from the 4th spot

yea, it's pretty clean stuff. he's just snaking some extra wire around it doesn't hurt anything, just takes time, leave the top plate off and spend a couple hours freakin around with it, tuck it in, use the kit wire holders and all the other clean wiring tricks. mine is the opposite, battery to esc right over the top. do not use the "wiring thread" as an example there is some horrid stuff there
