The D413 looked composed on the track and Ty did great
Let me know when you need additional testing.

In all seriouness you should bring the car to OCRC and get it into peoples hands for a few laps. Serp did that with their new 2wd and generated a flood of interest.

ETA should be before the year is out, price should be competitive with other similarly equipped buggies in the class. I can't quote exact numbers and dates since I'm not the guy in charge of that area. I don't want to throw my co-workers under the bus by posting wrong info.

That made me go re-watch the video! And wow, I did not realize Ty's car hit both of them! Until now I thought Cav and Maifield hit each other! Durability achieved!

For the rear it has 12mm hexes. It is compatible with all the usual 12mm hex rear wheels (AE, Kyosho, TLR, PL, JC, AKA, etc.)

For the front the kit includes BOTH 12mm and 9.8mm hexes. The included HB wheels uses the 12mm hex. The included 9.8mm hexes are compatible with the TLR-22 2WD buggy front wheels.

That's not a typo - the offset compatibility is with the 2WD TLR-22 front which PL, JC, and AKA have versions of. The usual 4WD fronts from the major wheel companies can be made to fit but the hex fit will be a little tight and the front total track width will end up a little narrow. for some reason the hex on the TLR-22 is 9.8mm and the rest of 4WD wheels are 9.5mm. Why there's a 0.3mm difference between the 2WD and 4WD i don't know. The wheel offsets are different as well but during the design phase I studied all the available wheels and I preferred the TLR-22 offset.

Just say when and I will be all over that!

That A2 accident was the best advertising for the D413! Like many other guys in the thread, it sealed the deal for me as far as which wheeler I will be buying! Great work on the car!

Let me know in advance if you can (PM me) and I'll be there and will also let others know to come buy in case they were thinking of skipping a weekend. I'm sure many would mark their calendar and try to come down to take a look.

You'll get a good crowd any Saturday, and as I'm sure you know the guys at OCRC are all very chill. You'll get a lot of positive attitude and genuine feedback.

Sunday also gets a big crowd, but as it's a race day that won't give you much time to let people get their hands on the buggy.

Will 4wd front tires fit on TLR 2wd front rims? Seems like they would be too narrow.

the difference in width is very small. Ty raced with 4WD front tires mounted on 2WD front wheels (PL #2734-04).

First off, I don't ever use instruction manuals. I mostly depend on natural instincts in building cars and regular daily life. That's how I lost everything in Vegas

Was funky looking when the car was upside down and he gassed it, flipping it back over. Must have been sitting just right or ?
