All XB808 kits include the left threaded M3x18 screws for mounting the front right shock and rear left shock.

No, these screws are only for XB808 cars as on XT8 cars you will need longer screws.

I would love to see Xray make a steel heavy flywheel for the standard 3 shoe XB808 clutch. I haven't been able to find anything that will even work other than an
aftermarket company which I think requires you to use their clutch shoes and springs
also. Just to clarify because I don't have my buggy in front of
me, the Xray flywheel is 32mm, correct? I like the Xray clutch, plus being able to use almost any shoe that a hobby shop might carry is a plus. I just want to be able to calm down my buggy on some of the dusty, low traction tracks we have here in South Florida. Thanks.

Said before i'm sure ,........ but please make longer boots for the rear shocks on the XT8, I CAN'T SEE WHY THIS WAS OVER LOOKED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW KITS.

Using other after market boots still leaves the problem of the spring retainer not fitting and being to loose....................... THIS NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION :)

AGAIN SAID BEFORE ( BUT NEVER ACTED ON ) would be to redesign that old relic of a body, to thin an its way out dated, again can't see way they remain as the factory kit body, i'd say that 90% are thrown away, or do as i do paint them for concourse then never used as one land on your lid and it screwed. I'd rather buy a XRAY produced body than one from JCONCEPTS or PROLINE BULLDOG BODIES, XRAY loose alot of coin with us buying the after market bodies.

Larger internal diameter in o-rings in the shocks, same with the diff o-ring, i actual use another brand of o-ring in the diffs and they never leak or seep fluids

Just my 2cents worth and with all the 2 cents in this thread it's a fortune

Love the product and use religiously but the few drama's are letting it down

Not sure if it has been mentioned yet, but boots for the drive axels would be awsome, especially the center front and rear. Not a must, but I wold like to see the dated looking body replaced. A cab forwardd design would be sweet.

Can we have the lightweight diff outdrives included as standard parts in kits, plus in the complete replacement diff sets? Seems a waste to not use the standard parts, so I end up using them till they wear, then buying the lightweight ones as replacements.

I've not noticed any difference in wear rate, but if you feel there is, maybe there could be seperate part numbers for diff sets with/without lightweight outdrives?

I would love to see the 808 with the old style driveline that was extremely reliable. Other than an aluminum front tower I dont think the car needs anything. Just a better design in the center driveline area. ( pinion )

Wheel nuts that don't come loose.

It's nice to be able to fasten the wheelnuts by hand as far as possible, and use a wrench only to tighten it up.
So I don't prefer using loctite (by the way: they still come loose) or a nylon locking ring.
I would like to see Xray nuts with a serrated face that bites into the wheel.
Possibly capped too (like it was an option 5 years ago for the XB8, # 355265).

The wheel nuts normally don't come loose if tightened correctly, what rims are you running?

Hi Robin,

Original Starburst rims (and I really like them).
I tighten the wheel nuts the same as I do for years (on previous 'other brand' buggies).
Never ever lost a wheel.

I've compared nuts and wheel axles from other brands.
- Some of my old wheel axles are slightly ticker (11.95mm vs. 11.85mm XRAY), so tighter fit (but XRAY nuts still fit by hand).
- Some of my old wheelnuts are thicker (5.6mm vs. 4.2mm XRAY), so more thread to hold on.
- The contact face on my old nuts is a ring 2.0mm wide. An XRAY nut has a much wider ring: 2.6mm.
- XRAY parts are hard-coated and super smooth. My old parts are softer, with signs of use (burred/gritted).

I think the last point makes the difference.

Differential housing with Aluminium or steel insert for the Pinion Bearing support. Ideally the insert would be finned in Aluminium for heat dissipation.

A secondary option would be to allow the use of splash lubrication in the differential housings (front and rear). This would allow heat to be dissipated by the chassis pan and would reduce wear/losses. A drain plug would be required.
