So the narrow front make it steering better cause right now it's like the back is pushing the front. Don't like that I'm gonna probly get them exact tires and rims. Thanks buddy for info
Yes My DR used to push bad, these tires made a world of difference. Also, I put thicker diff oil in the front than the rear. 7K front 5K rear. Some think it is thin, but it works well for me!!

View attachment 14089 The Stern-CNC belt drive is an option. My MT does 45 mph using this belt. I have it on the Dunerunner too in the pic. I have yet to GPS the Dunerunner since install
So is the belt drive covered or is it open. I am going with the 2 speed so probably not going to invest in that but looks great on yours. thanks again for your time and help with the XB. Im not sure what the top speed is now but am curious on what it is. I had to chop the side of my body up to get the MT pipe to fit so going to order another body with the jetpro pipe. Still going to paint it flat black of course. Thanks buddy

Ok so I'm gonna try that I'm using tranny fluid now it gives great rebound on landing and very smooth driving. I can't give it any gas while turning or it just goes straight. I have lost 2 races because of that problem. Thanks for the advice got a list to order. HAPPY BASHING MY FRIENDS.

 alt= Yes Sir there is a cover for the belt. Plus the DR has thick splash guards, which I had to modify to fit over the belt cover

That looks great I would love to have my new body dipped in that coating. If your friend would I would pay him for the dipping of my body if possible. Let me know. Thanks G-Man

He will be making bodies in several scales. Not sure how many 5ths he is making though. Once he is up and running I will let you know. I'm sure he can coat a body for you. But his original bodies are made from his patented materials. Will see.

I can vouch for the narrower tyres on the front.
The big problem with the stock tyres is that the fronts are a bigger diameter than the rears so they are pushing/pulling against each other.
Ridiculous setup on a 4WD.  alt=

Yeah it sucks and I see that's my only option is the ramtech adapters. I have a list to order tmrw so let you know as soon as get them all in and on buggy. The grub screw come out today while bashing it was a front wheel drive it was funny as hell I drove it for about 5 min like that. Front tires are slicks so wouldn't get any traction just spin. Have a good one guys. Thanks for all the advice. HAPPY BASHING MY FRIENDS.

Rovan wheel hexes fit straight on the DR and are a LOT cheaper.
You use your stock pins and nuts.

I meant change my xb to rovan rims. That would open my options up a lot for the tire selection.

The DR and MT are different size. They won't work on the XB. The XB has smaller axles. Ramtec is the only one I know of who makes them. Also make sure you get the ramtec adapters for 24 mm wheels. They have ones to use stock MT wheels also.

I found the lose t-5ive 24mm wheel hexes nuts and pins will they fit my XB if so I'm gonna order as soon as someone tells me they will or want work for better wh

Wheel options is what it was supposed to say. I hope so cause the ramtech adapters not in budget but the losi wheel hexes and nuts are 27 bucks which is lot cheaper than the 69.99 plus tax. Thanks guy's
