    I don't have any first hand experience with the xs but Iv'e always heard it had weak diffs so that might not be a good idea.
    If you dont know what your doing, its best to do it quickly.

    I have never had any issues with the diffs in either of my XS's...

    You could try them but watch the temps on the motor and esc...
