If anyone is sitting on a stack of them, I'd be happy to buy one from you, pay for shipping, plus when I receive mine from Tower, I'll mail one back to you for free to replace the one you sold me.

Pm me if you can help a brother out
Having the extra spur gears is a plus, but honestly, i have not had any issues with mine and i drive the buggy very hard. With the kits being in stock this morning, i have a feeling the remaining parts will be in by next week. Its going to be Christmas in July for some of you

I haven't had much time to race the buggy but I have put lots of time with testing and tuning. My only issue I had was with the shocks.I upgraded the x rings and used Kyosho's. I also polished the shocks which made a whole world of a difference. Coming from a durango which has more steering than you can ever want, I went with 30K up front in the diff to calm the buggy down a bit. Still have plenty of steering.

Well I'm getting my buggy today... Picked up a 2 run old one. What's the diff set up of choice for low grip?

Has anyone tried both configurations (shorty versus saddle pack)? I run on both clay and loose dirt.

I am running 30k/100k/10. I am thinking of trying 80k in the center to help with braking.

I am curious to know about this too. I run on dirt where some of the track has insane grip and other parts are loose.

Alright, the D413 is for me. What extra parts are worth ordering besides hard to find spur gears?

Who's got any spur gears in stock?

Can anyone clarify: what is gained or lost by thicker fluid in the center diff?

Street cred yo!

JK. I treat it like a slipper in some regards. Thicker fluid is like a tighter slipper and thinner fluid like a looser slipper. Thicker fluid for high grip and thinner fluid for low grip. Ty uses 300K in the center on super high bite and 50K on really low bite for example. I stick with 100K as a good all around weight.

I'm running on a super low bite 8th scale track. I started with 10 100 10 in the diffs. Went down to 10 50 10 and that helped, but I still want more rear stability so for this weekend im going to try 10 30 5 and see how it works.

Lighter center fluid will give you more front drive.
