thanks Jeremy, I had an RS Pro in my dex410 on a gen 1 redline 6.5 with a HT rotor
I think I'll go with a gen2 7.5 stock rotor
watcha think? RSX settings? I'm not a pro like you lol
I think this will be a durable car!

Here is a great baseline setup from one of our team drivers. Should work well on a wide variety of tracks. http://www.teamtekin.com/hotwire/esc...sbury_v249.pdf

I run smc batteries they are the best for the price. you will need rsx for 7.5 motor. i don't think the rs can run past 10.5 but i could be wrong.

I just went with 1 of each of what I consider to be the basics...caster blocks, steering blocks, hubs, skid plates, spur gear, front & rear arms, and a second set of wheels. If any parts turn out to be failure prone, I'll stock accordingly.

I am going out on a limb with my approach, I didn't order any spares or tuning options

And also not designed to withstand the loads from 4x4 buggies.

Looks like Stormer Hobbies will be also be stocking up on D413 parts. With Tower, A Main, and Stormer(among others) providing parts support for this wheeler, I'm GTG since I do 98% of my hobby shopping online and my local track can order HB parts upon request. No complaints here unless the distributer is slow to replenish stock that sells out.
