You do only use active diff in front. Yes you will feel the diffrent on and off trottle. But you should also buy 120°mod because it comes quicker in and goes easier out. Good luck in racing :wink:

I'm trying to find out what part from the XB8 series of buggies is interchangeable with the XT8 that eliminates the E-Clips on the suspension. I've tried google and all that jazz, but I guess I should hae tried here first. :? I'd appreciate any help you guys can give.

This is all you need for the captured hinge pin setup and full kick-up/anti-squat adjustments.

Mallet,

I appreciate the info as well. I knew it was a XB8 part originally, I just couldn't remember what it was called exactly. Thanks again guys, I'm still trying to learn all the ins and outs of this amazingly capable truggy.

And a bumper set if you dont have one already, (for the rear bumper). there will be a gap under the rear alum suspension blocks that will allow dirt and grit inside the diff if you dont have that rear bumper piece.

Yeah I have done this aswell but although there is a gap under the rear toe plate dirt can't actually get into the diff. When screwing the bulkheads to the chassis it's also a good idea to put a thin smear of RTV silicone to the mating surfaces to help keep dirt out.

I hadn't thought of that KaGe, thanks again. I picked up some rear chassis skidplates today, supposed to help protect the tail end of the chassis plate from wearing down as quick, so we'll see how that goes.

You guys can also try to use shoe goo or anything else like hot glue to seal em up...

NOW about this 120 deg mod and active diff, looks like i have been away from my favorite brands forums, anybody have any links or is this even usable?


Thank you XRAY for making quite possible the most scaleable truggy in the market (MHO)!

I'm going to get the over drive front diff gear for my 808 but i was wondering if the overdrive gear would be just as good in my XT8? So is the 41t overdrive front diff gear a good tuning option for a truggy, cuz I loved my EC with the overdrive diff gear.

I have run the 41t over drive gear in the xt8 & 808 many times & you wont be disapointed as like you said a great tunning tool.

ok guys got 2 outdoor races on the new 2009 truggy and all i can say is wow....home run with this truck...it has as much steering as my buggy and thats saying alot....just wanted to say great job to the xray masters..only thing i see wrong so far is the rear shock boots are a tad short for the shocks and they pop off once in a while but nothing that would take ya out of the race.....


keep up the great work
