Amain and Tower are now posting late June. I'm not certain that Tower is completely at fault. I do find customer service at Amain to be friendlier. I have it back ordered in both places though. Does anyone know if another manufacture has something comparable in the works?

I don't know of anything comparable to the d413 that is coming out soon. I would wait it out and make sure to get this buggy when it is available for you.

Ty ran a 21 at worlds with a 5.5, and a 13mm rotor isn't going to require more then a tooth or two.

The V3 motors are plenty good and mine have never had overheating issues.
The drift motor with the built-in fan is pretty slick too. Speed Passion is always working on new things. I'm sure the V4 won't disappoint. Although I LOVE their connectors, I was hoping they'd relocate them so they all sit together because it makes for a slightly cleaner look.

Late June... I consider cancelling the pre-order although there is no real alternative on the market. We'll see...

Sure there is, Team C TM4. It doesn't come with a center diff, but the center diff conversion is hitting the market any day now. The TM4 is $330 at the current Team C sale price, so cost will be about the same once you add the center diff.

I used to have an Ansmann/TeamC truck that broke as soon as a butterfly would unfold its wings two miles away. Most likely things will have improved a lot, but their cars still break nearly as often as the Durango stuff in our racing series.
To be honest, they could win three world championships in a row, but I'd still be biased and wouldn't touch anything TeamC in the coming century.
If it wasn't for the D413 I wouldn't consider getting a wheeler at all (except maybe a B-Max4III, cough!)

I've never had a problem with my Team C stuff, my Evo actually holds up better than any other 1:10 buggy I've owned. But I certainly understand where you're coming from. It only takes one bad vehicle to turn you off to a brand.

What...you don't won't a borderline explosive B44.2?

Thanks! Was wondering if setups were straying away from 100K
Center!
