Correct placement of the brace is in front of the tower where it does what it's intended to; protecting the carbon.

This is much easier to do when you build it.
same problem here, just a very bad design (thanks juraj hudy for your excellence and luxury car), its is impossible to make it tight without spring so imagine with a spring and mount it on the car. Those things turn me crazy, an 8 years old boy could rotate it free without spring how is supossed that we are going to get it tight Mr juraj???
In few months we got an updated servo saver for 30-40 dollars...........

Do you guys think its worth picking up a cheap Xb9 2012 spec for parts?
Or would I be better off buying 2 xb9e kits?

you arent going to break nothing of this car at least if you dont smash it with a wall. The best of xray 1/8 buggys is their realibility.
Have anyone contacted team xray about the issue of that stupid servo saver, its really weird make mods on a new expensive car. What kind of weed did xray smoke when desinging that crappy servo saver plus no body, chassis from nitro..... I will advice to dont buy this car until they solve their problems, if you dont we all win cause for next time they will make things better

Well I just received the XB9E yesterday and I'm about to start the build. This is my first 1/8 E-buggy and I'm pretty excited about it. I have the XB4 and love it so I thought Id give this one a try. I've been going threw some of these back pages and was wondering if there is anything to watch out for or tips that could help with the build. I seen where some are having issues with the servo saver. Also I didnt get a body and was wonder what you are using until X-ray's hit the shelves?
Thanks
Aaron

Jconcepts Finisher body supposedly works great. Working on getting one painted up now. There is no "E" body out yet.

Just CA the saver tube in. I've never had any trouble with it. My servo saver setup seemed the same as any other 1/8th scale car.

I'm voting operator error. I've built 3 808's and an Xb9 without servo saver trouble. And those all seemed identical. My saver setting is also extremely tight and red threadlocked.

No point in ya'll having a hissy fit. All you pro's should be able to fix a saver problem and fit a body by now. Otherwise go back to 2wd SCT.

We race both the XB4 and the XB9E.

They're as similar as any other 1/8th and 1/10 buggy are
