Default thank you for the help

Thank you bentka for the information, suggestions, and answering all of the questions. It really is a thankless job. You and your daughter are an asset to xray.

The xb4 is very durable and the machining and part quality are second to none. My original batch xb4 (with the v2 upgrade parts), is still tight with minimal wear. That is what you pay for with xray.

To reiterate -> IF YOUR SLIPPER IS SET CORRECTLY YOU WILL NOT BREAK DIFF GEARS. If you hold 1 rear wheel and the spur with one arm and try to turn the other rear wheel, the slipper should slip when you apply moderate force. If it doesn't, it is too tight. If you cannot see any threads beyond the slipper nut and your slipper is still tight, the problem is in the slipper pads. The easy solution is to change the slipper pads.

To keep costs down, I run regular associated pads and they work great (they are a bit smaller, but it doesn't affect anything):

(you will have to tighten the slipper more because the pads are thinner and have less surface area.)

Bentka, enjoy time racing with your daughter, and thanks again.
