When you let off the throttle it basically allows the vehicle to continue to coast farther

Typically yes, in vehicles where the drivetrain isn't as free as you would want it to be.

Idk if it's already been discussed but what are you owners doing to keep the axle drive pins inserted in the hex when removing the wheels. They fall out quite easily

I like to use black grease. It's sticky enough to hold them in yet still easy to remove when needed.

Makes sense, a thought passed through my mind to dip the pins in that 100,000 wt diff oil. That stuff is crazy thick sticky... Grease it is!

You can also use a bit of shoe glue.

Not at all. you only need a dab of it. It is sort of elastic. I am currently using shoe glue and the pins don't fall out. It's easy to remove the pin if need be, push it out with something small enough and it will pop out.

Default D413 pics

Finally got it done and was able to run the 2014 Hot Rod Hobbies shoot out, ended up in the D-main and took 3rd. This was my 3rd time driving the buggy and got it dialed in with the help of Ty Tessman and Billy Fisher.
I was able to have Ty & Gord Tessman sigh my buggy along with Billy Fisher, Drew Moller, and Jason Snyder, all the hot bodies guys that were driving this weekend.
