That was me! The car was awesome to drive. The stock shock setup is way too soft pack wise for Norcal though. A little fiddling with the shocks and the car will be even better.

I'm curious about this question too. When I manually spin the spur, it moves as smoothly as any of my other cars (I don't feel any binding). But the car does make more noise than other cars I've heard in the past. Then again, this is my first car with gear diffs and when I hold one tire to hear the diff, the whine gets even louder. So I was going to assume that it was normal.

I run the mesh pretty smooth. I can "click" the teeth of the spur gear freely between the teeth of the pinion. spur seems very good, without much wear.

the car does not sound the same as any other 4wd buggy like 22-4, CAT, B44.2.

it could be mainly because its a 3 diff metal geared scaled down 1/8 buggy


edit: about temps. Always try to setup your electronics gearing wise. try different pinions, so that your topspeed is a 3/4 of the longest straightaway. and you can make the largest jump.
after that you start adding boost or turbo through your speedo. watch your temps, and test with a external timer. If your heats are 6 minutes, then watch temps around 8 minutes of running laps.
they have to be good still at 8 minutes, then you are safe. also watch the outside temperature,

I have my trackstar or reedy 6.5 and 7.5 after 8 or 10 minutes. around 165F. and that is with no boost and motor default timings

make sure your gear mesh in gearbox is good as well, also put some (black) grease on diff gears will also help.
small tutorial from other cars:

my buddy used some high speed grease and resulted in extra drag in the driveline. take care for what grease you use. extra drag = extra need for power = getting hotter faster

AE black grease is indeed a good option. use a little

I followed the manual and didn't put any grease in the gearbox. Is that actually required/needed?

generally fine, considering it's machined steel ring gear and bevel gear box stock, super strong and super smooth, it's difficult to damage them.

most 1/10 buggy use casted gears, (with machined gears as a pricy option part), and those casted metal can get damaged with excessive power we have these days. and (black) grease goes a long way to protect them.

*another small thing, if your gear accidentally gets chipped, grease will help hold the broken piece on the gearbox wall, so it won't scramble around and cause further damage.

Just wanted to share as the body has returned from the painter. All done and ready to take it to the track.

I did have one issue, one of my bearings did not have the plastic seal for whatever reason. But I got a replacement bearing and moved on.

Otherwise a very smooth build.

Here you go:

What's the internal gear ratio and spur gear size?

from page 1:

for reference the D413 comes with a 72T spur and the gearbox ratio is 43/13

Kinda strange that a sponsor of Tessman doesn't carry parts for a car he drives?

On another note, I should have the new R10.1 pro no later than Monday to put into this beast.

My driving wasn't all that good as I am still getting used to the car (this was only my third pack through it) and I need to increase pack in the shocks to handle the rhythm section better, but I was still able to TQ and win the A-Main. I was certainly able to test its durability in the qualifiers and the main. The car just begs to be driven hard and it can handle it even if you get it wrong.

Thumbs up

Just got the electronics in and threw on the clay tires from my old 22. This is what it looks like when the links are still the default length the manual first has you build them:



Needs some fine tuning
