Thanks for the suggestion. Before I go that route I really want to make the pistons included in the kit work. I'm new to 4wd so just trying to understand what would work. I'm also trying to understand why some setups don't use a front sway bar and others don't use a rear. What the reason behind this.

I drive on bumpy low grip out door.
I have 4x1.2 with 30wt in the back with the stock springs and I drilled the blanks as 2x1.4 with 35wt for the front with a slight stiffer spring then the one that came with the kit.
setup is evolving but I like it.
I use the thickest front swaybar and no rear swaybar

Default Something better is around the corner!

What a blessing in disguise! I've had the HB D413 backordered for 2 months now and was getting frustrated to see the dates getting pushed back further each month. It all worked out because I found out that something better will be coming out soon. I cancelled my HB D413 backorder today with Tower. The D413 is a formidable machine but I don't like the way they jerked around potential customers. Also, the buggy that will be out shortly has had the chance to compile data on the D413 and is more flexible to varying track conditions.

lol...meanwhile I'm having the most fun with this buggy than I can remember with any wheeler in 25 years of rc. Durable doesn't even come close to describing it. The car you're hyping will also have it's availability issues for the first few months too, btw.

Default rear hinge pin and antisquat installation

I found a image from snyder on the front but did not see the rear image. Does this look like the correct way to install the hinge pin holders on the rf and rr? Thanks
