Ok. Do you know if the front shock tower from the xb08 (352096)will fit on the diff housing (352004) from the xb9e? Because to change everything will be to expensive!!

And also one more question..

Does 34mm clutchwheel fit nicely and work nicely on the xb8 2014? I am planning to use Reds Racing clutch system and found out all their clutch is 34mm.

Thanks in advance

Has anyone tried to use the stock plastic servo horn with the servo saver spring preloaded to the stock settings?
I had 3 worn steering servo horns (savox servo - F horn) with stock setting, then I loosened the preload a little bit and
it seemd to be ok for 4-5 tanks but then the same thing happend. I think I will set it to minimum preload and use a metal servo horn
to solve this issue. There were two cars having the same problem at the track.
Apart from that, the car is awesome as expected.!

I think with today's strong servos and grippy tyres an aluminium servo horn is a must. The Hudy horns are just perfect for the job.

Ok, I will install an alu servo horn but I was using the stock plastic servo horn for 5 years on the 808 with no problems.The servo saver spring of the 808 was a lot softer than the xb8's one.Anyway, thanks a lot.
