the first batch was 300 kits. the 2nd is 400. we have a small factory. they're maxxed out.

You deserve a raise!
glad to hear the D413 is working well for you! a word of caution about using thread lock on the pins though - use very very little of it and only on the outer ends. if you use too much and it seeps in towards the axle they'll be a bitch to get out. i know because i've made this mistake

Ok thanks. I heard the first batch was much smaller than that. Hopefully I'll be lucky enough to get one from next batch.

What about parts? They are coming with the second batch? The only reason I have no kit on preorder yet is because their no parts available.

I don't know why this issue with spares always pop up. Back when I worked at AE it's the same story. Spares ship out with the kits. This is how we always do it. Most companies also ship spares out with kits. I don't know what happens to them after they leave our factory. Ask the distributors what they do with the spares. I saw an earlier post where somebody successfully ordered and received D413 spares.

Back from a day at the track. I signed up for 2wd 13.5 class as usual. We end up with a mixed bag of 3 x 13.5 and 2 x mod 2wd. So for the second round I ran the D413 and ran a lap faster than my 2wd 13.5 and ran it in the main as well for another lap over the second round. My problem is I have to push myself to drive in 4wd mode. Now I'm only running a 9.5 while the 2wd mod's were running 7.5 motors. The car was fast, responsive, nimble and easy to drive, all while not feeling on "the edge". After the mains were over I let 3 friends drive the car and all 3 will be ordering cars this week. The funny thing was that all three said the car had too much steering for their preference. All the changes through out the day was to take steering out of the car and I felt the car was fairly neutral, but I have a few ideas for improvements. First off will be a harder front sway bar, around 20 - 25%, and tune from there. Only thing I need to order for spares are front shock shafts. I could have sold a half dozen kits if I'd had them.

Hey guys, There are 7 different tracks in my area that I attend (Tennessee & Kentucky). I've never owned a 10th scale 4x4 buggy, but intend on the D413 being my 1st one. 3 of the tracks are indoor, the other 4 are outdoor. The track sizes range from 2,000 to 12,000 square feet of actual track space. Most of the guys I see at the tracks are running 6.5T motors, in their 10th scale 4x4 buggies, so I figured I'd run a 6.5T motor also.

My question is, what range of pinion gears should I keep on hand for the size & variety of tracks as described above if I were to run a 6.5T motor in the D413.

I've also wondered if I should just get 2 different motors, something like a 7.5T for the smaller tracks, and 5.5T for the larger tracks.

Maybe these are good questions for Tye, or Torrence ?

Thanks in advance for any advice.
