^ RogueIV - Thanks. Cool looking brace you made. I have some carbon fiber 22-4 braces that I'm going to modify and try to make them work.

These are the Exotek 22-4 braces that I cut up to make work on the XX4. I still need to add some stops, and a few other small changes, but they already hold the batteries very secure. I removed the battery decals and wrapped them with faux carbon for looks and some protection.

I cut out and installed this Bittydesign wing. I also modified the stock wing mounts to accept wing washers and screws instead of body clips.

I also finished the rear swaybar links. Just waiting on my servo steering link to arrive.

JC Racing wheels and Schumacher rubber has been installed. Still working on the stance, and a few other things to come. Comments always welcome.

Never seen those before they look sharp though! I need to see if I can get those I just noticed they have JRX2 wheels too!
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.

I am using this Rusti Designs front aluminum bulkhead. I am so happy I ordered it when I did, as they are now going out of business, and all parts are sold out. It is very similar to the Trinity unit.

I realized that I had the carbon steering rack on backwards.

Front end is now bolted up, and towers are next. Just waiting on an order of Lunsford hardware.
You should check out Schumacher CAT SX front arms they have a much stronger design and the same geometry as the originals. You just have to use slightly longer inner hinge pins.

Thanks for sharing! Will definitely use this on my vintage racer.

I ordered some custom colored XX4 decals from MCI. There are some small printing mistakes, but otherwise I think they look great. The chrome doesn't show in the pictures too well.

I am still trying to decide on paint for this car.

I changed the rear arms back to graphite XX/XX4 arms.

I also installed a Rusti Designs rear pivot support. It is a nice piece made from thick carbon fiber and a printed piece. It's meant to prevent the pins from popping out during a crash.
