Is there a conversion for the HB springs to other brands like kyosho or losi rates?

The best spring chart on line from Oople (http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/BuggyBigBoreSpring.pdf) Just use the rates listed in gf/mm. Found on Petiterc.com, and it has been updated recently to include HPI springs for the D413 even lists part #'s.

Not sure if this is appropriate to do here but since this is a little different, I thought I would try.

My preorder from amain has come in stock. But I already bought my kit from Tower. If someone wants it, they can pay me and I can ship it directly to them. I can provide a screen print from amain as proof. But this is really just a courtesy to those that participate in this thread. If no one wants it, I'll just delete the order and let one other person on the wait list get it.

The cost would be $429.99 shipped. Please PM me directly so we don't clutter this thread.

By the way. I preordered on april 19 from tower, and my order status just changed to "mid june". I assume i missed out on the second batch as well? Has anyone else received their order from the second batch?

So, did the second batch sell out, or did the boat get delayed?

Tower, as crappy as the CS is, told me they never got second batch! Who knows I was told 3 different responses about my back order since day 1
A guy on here said he ordered April 19 from Tower and his was shipped!

Just for more reference information. My amain backorder went in on 3/31 which came into stock yesterday. So not sure how far down the list they got on backorders.

If AMAIN got theirs in stock yesterday, then Tower is lying to us!
