Here is a dumb question.. but has anyone ever considered using the GTX8 brake linkage on the XB8?

edit:
ordered some of the parts.. doesnt fit.. could do some modifications.. but.. not a direct fit..

Angeled pistons front 1.2mm x8 450cst and rear 1.3mm x8 400cst. Stock ribbed S membranes, some using soft non-ribbed ones to get softer. Full shock lengs 106,5mm/126mm.
Diffs Front 6k, Middle 5K and Rear 3K. Sway bars 2.2-2.2. Rear hub low and link long and low in tower also. Shocks hole 2 front and hole 7 rear. Could run 1/6 also.
Max front kick-up and +1 front caster inserts. Ride height F 22,5mm - R 24mm. FX engine K301, 2131 pipe, short-mid muffler with stock 3-shoe clutch. Accerman front hole for more steering on tight corners.

What surface you running that setup on? The ride height is dropped! If I ran that low on our rocky outdoor track my chassis would be done in one day. Clay, Carpet?

It is clay track that dont have any holes and its low grip. Its pretty low and chassy is taking some beating but other than that car was great.
I will test higher next time and play with membranes and pistons. I think angled holes allow to run car lower and feels softer at table than
in track. Another clay track has more bumps and holes but somehow that lower setup hasnt been problem even chassis get more contact. Also running harder 4 spring at front helps keeping front end level even lower right height.

Had this happen when the bulkhead was worn out, lets the diff move too much, the out-drive rubs a little on the bulkheads bearing retainer. Could also happen if bearings are worn. Not a big deal, install some of the Xray differential bearing washers to tighten it back up.

Part# 962131 .1mm
Part# 962130 .2mm

Was a brand new kit and first few runs. So thatís why I was not sure what happened. I had .1 shim on the non gear side. I even spent alot time setting the mesh on the build, but maybe it moved side to aide to much. I have Truggy as well so I will check that as well. Thanks for the tips
