X inner hinge pins are 66mm and are compatible not sure about the rear outer pins. Wheel hexes and pins including the XT are the same. The XT uses +4 rear hexes and +2 front hexes.

Rear wings but not the mount

X shock standoffs are basically the same as a 8ight 2.0, Use X bushings thou.

Turnbuckles, rod ends, and ball links will work as a whole set thou the links are the same.
oh that’s nuts, I actually have some arms from Kevin that look dremeled down where the shock cups would be and are fitted with the new x steering parts made for the 4.0 arms that I have in a bag from 3 years ago, u would dig them. Probably when they first started testing out stuff for the x. Probably wouldn’t be very good tho the arms look like they have been tested to death but with them being a solid arm with a carbon insert it may still be good for atleast 1 day on my 4.0 lol

Yes I have the shims on the pinion shaft the set screw still sets nicely on the relief of the pinion shaft. Found that where it is at is the maximum and can not shim farther thou at this spacing the dogbone pin stays in the average area.

I have two other unknown part # bones that simply are to long.

This bone also came stock in the box with my 8ight e 4.0 for rear.

My 8ight nitro 4.0 has not been ran on a track since rebuilding the car to ultralite.

Just got a 8ight-t rtr been bashing around since I cannot get enough traction to try a track without bottoming or spinning out and flipping.

First week curb stomped the servo to death.

Second week a sub zero tree snapped the front center dogbone.

Between breakdowns noticed I needed a little more tuneability to keep the traction so I have 3.0 shocks, adjustable hinge pins, turn knuckles on the way.

Should I upgrade the chassis and/or shock towers? If I did would I be able to get these parts from the 4.0 or would I need additional parts?

Both my 8ight 4.0 and E4.0 have changed over the down time.

I had more of a difficult time getting mine to stay flattened out.. would like to flip entering turns or attempting to turn on brambles. I could not do a donut, it would self terminate in about 240 degrees.

A list of things have changed on both from roll center, rear offset braces allowed reduction of overall rear toe in as it will be more with offsets, low profile aluminum rear hubs, longer rear shock tower, x-shocks.. and various bushing mods..

Can just use a punch to turn a bladder into a emulsion type seal.
