Default associated shock caps

So I bought the associated shock caps but I am a little confused. What part number is the "standoff" that you use to get it to seat properly? And what type of screw and nut are you guys using to hold it all together? Specific part numbers or links are always appreciated.

#91445 for standoffs. A button head or cap head screw. Use the M3 nut that holds the stock shock mount

I had my rear hinge pin break at the threads with the piece still in the nut too... Totally my fault though... I torqued it too much and snap... Waiting on the replacement set now

The D413 is my first 10th scale buggy.

So far I've had one practice night. (2 battery packs)

Entered my first club race at my local track last night, snagged 3rd place

Started with the geometry of Ty's OCRC READY RACE set up for a baseline. Tailored shock, diff fluids and tire selection to the surface of my local track.

Really enjoying this car. Thought I seen Deguzman mention on this thread at some point that he planned to do a 2wd in the future. I'd definitely be interested.

I did have one component fail. By the end of the 3rd heat, I had to replace the Parma servo tape. Stuck a fresh peace on, then used the available servo mount holes in the chassis to place a small ball cup on both sides of the esc & zip tie it down for peace of mind. I've never been able to find a servo tape that would last very long.

Mip servo tape and use denatured alcohol or simple green to clean then make sure you get all cleaner residue off with dry towel

Hey thanks man ! I didn't know MIP made servo tape. I'll get some. Hope to catch you at Radio Active some time this month. If it doesn't work out, I can mail that spur gear to you if you decide you want it quicker.

I use shoegoo, it will not come off until you take it off. I've never had an issue with shock to the esc (Tekin's) on many different chassis... most of them goo'd directly to the chassis.

Never thought about shoe gooing the esc down before. I normally run Tekin. They have a strong housing/case. Not sure if this Speed Passion case could handle the stress when it's time to remove it. I do like it's performance. Pretty smooth and controlable.

Should be fine on any case, just have to get a flat head under it and twist in different locations to work it loose.

sucks that it broke...was anything else loose ? or did it just snap....should be a warranty item
NOTHING else loose, it was a freak break! No biggie, it happens!Just glad it was right in front of me! i wouldve lost all kinds of washers! at least they are orange might be somewhat easier on the track! Car has never been run yet
parts on the way

Default OK HB where are the damn screws?!

I finally got the carbon fiber arm covers that have been on back order forever, so I thought I would put together a set to try out since I had a new set of arms. NO screws anywhere! I would not expect them to come with the carbon arm covers (even though they cost a fortune for some very small pieces); but I would expect them to come with the arms and covers! All of the other HB kits that use the same type of arm covers come with the screws (Apache, D812). And often times the loss of some of the screws is what leads to an arm having to be replaced... good luck there with no screws included! HB... COME ON!

Rant over... got some screws on order now!
