Not great behaviour by a brand ambassador, no wonder they get banned from various forums/FB groups

Holy cow, two grown up men arguing about (racing) toy cars. Well done both of you

Grow up, drink a beer at the next EOS together and remember we are all playing with toy cars, nothing more than that.

Have fun and enjoy this hobby.

About the XB2 2017: The 2016 is a good car so I hope they won't make it better

So apart from the gearbox change, from 4 gear to 3 gear, is there any other changes to the car?

Cheers

I have an XB2 and an Xb4 - and have waited / watched with interest re the new car.

I'm surprised that the new car's 3 Gear transmission is so much better - in the years of development and testing - why didn't a 3 gear tranny come to the fore - seems really odd if it's such a noticeable improvement?

Oh - and reading through the thread - Bent - regardless of who is right and who is wrong - you do come across as an aggressive Dick - doesn't help that you look like Phil Mitchell

But for more bumpy/medium grip astro tracks you'd go back to 4 gear? Or stay with the 3?

When you say minor changes apart from the gear box what would they be,if I break the part on the 16 car will the part for the 17 fit???
Any idea when xray will ship the gearbox separate,apart from the gear box I take a idle gear is required.
Will there be a update kit out for the 16 cars to 17 conversion
Thanks

Will the new car come with any of the softer plastics for when the grip does go down a bit? Also what's changed with the gear diff and will the 16 ball and gear diff fit in the 17?

Can the new gearbox be fitted to the 16 model Bent?. If so,is it just the new 36t gear that's needed?.
