eBay is a good source for parts. Just picked up a complete center diff set up for $40 including the spur

Thanks yzracer, also you were absolutely correct, RSX runs cool as the other side of the pillow, however I need to watch my run times more closely, 12-13 minutes motor was at 152 but at 16 minutes I was at 167 but I was having some good fun!

Part of the reason your temps start rising those last few minutes is because you're voltage is getting lower, and the ohms of resistance in your battery is rising at the same time.

I run my voltage cut off a little higher than most people. 3.4v per cell, or 6.8v total on a 2s lipo. Depending on how your esc displays information.

I'm only giving up a minute or so of total drive time, but temps are more consistent and my batteries seem to always have less ohms of resistance than other guys at the track.

Starting the build now. First very early impression. Parts are as good a fit as my XRAY kit was. Shock pistons I can actually read..... Finally. So far excellent.

Having issues with corner speed. I'm very smooth around the track and an A-main regular, but I am losing time on corner speed. I'm used to,rolling the corners on my 2wd mod buggy. How is everyone setting up their corners with the D413? Hitting them with throttle?

Ordered an orange Sworks wing to run on my buggy while I learn to drive. This is my first 10th scale buggy. Don't want to tare up my stock wing. I thought the orange would match my wheels.... Turns out it doesn't. I'm not even sure it's really orange. No biggie. It's just for practice any way.



I heard carbon can interfere with transponder signals. Is this location ok ?



I do like the location of my transponder and esc. Easy to do a quick vitals check through the windows.

I could be wrong and I often am, but they seem work just about anywhere, on my B5M I actually put the transponder on top of the servo I thought there might be interference but it works perfect.And here on m D413 I thought it might not work on end, but it does.[IMG][/IMG]

3.4v per cell is still kind of low, the chemistry or making lipo's have changed, and the cutoff needs to be set higher, i would recommend 3.5v-3.6v per cell

according to Danny at SMC, the reason batteries puff these days are because they are taken too far down in voltage. the internal resistance of the battery actually drops as temperature rises, and the battery is willing to give up its power more easily. I recommend LVC set at 3.6v, if you cant go 8 - 9 minutes then lower it to 3.5

in other news...tower has finally completed my orders for parts YAY

Thank you. I'll check it when I get home tonight. I know I have my Reventon Pro esc lvc set as high as it will go. It might be at 3.6v per cell already and I just assumed it was 3.4v.

Most of the guys at my local track have their lvc set around 3v per cell. That's too risky for me.

Show stopping build bug. Spur gear mold is way way off causing not only the spur to wobble by the out drive as well. Is this common? And if so who do I contact to get it fixed?

not normal, is it seating correctly or maybe just kind of hung op on some flash mold...is the seal (blue paper) somehow gotten folded or have ripples in it ? lastly are you putting enough torque on the screws, my screws where very tight the first couple of times...so had to apply more torque than i was really comfortable with

your buggy should have come with a credit sized warranty car with info on how to get support
