Digging up an old post, but the xx-4 clamp works on the 22-4 , I don't know if it goes the other way. I had a NOS in my parts box at home and it bolted right up to the 22-4

Iíve been putting together a car to run. I cut the hex off the stock axle and put on a B64 front hex to use to easy/cheap to get B64 wheels.

Another option for wheels is a B44 front hex which will go straight onto the standard axle.

If you're going to run it against modern buggies or with modern power (speed), I recommend you add a front hinge pin brace and swap out the now rare graphite arms for some flexy Schumacher Cat arms.

The B44 hex will work if you have M.I.P. Cvd's. The standard XX4 axle is aluminum and the hex is built in. On the B44 front wheel, the hex is deeper, and the wheel will bind on the steering block, unless you make a small hex 'riser' to put on the standard XX4 axle. I cut the hex off the standard axle and drilled a hole for the drive pin. Now I can run the M.I.P. hex for original Losi wheels, the B44 hex for B44 wheels, or the B64 hex for B64 wheels. This allows me to keep using the standard XX4 plastic universal joint which don't bind as much and are very easy and cheap to get replacements for.

Standard XX4 axle.

the trick back in the day... damn I sound old, was to take a RC10B2 front hingpin brace and bend the ends down and back out to place it against the front bulkhead. Minimal material removal was necessary but worked great.
