The wheel hex are for Cyclone D4

This may not be an issue since you mounted the fan, but IF you do experience higher motor temps, you might end up needing to get all that extra wire off of your motor can. This would be especially helpful if your fan played out in the middle of a race. I had wires packed right against a motor like that before on an 8th scale buggy. Kept battling with high temps. When I re-routed my wires off the motor can, it allowed more air flow around the motor. Dropped temps about 18 degrees. Just food for thought.

Your build looks great
thank you for the advise
I zip tied the wires to the motor to "Train" them to stay low. I will cut the zip tie when on the track and should stay of the motor. good point though.
I used a sheet of aluminum that I cut and bent to an L shape to mount the fan. I ran the wires from the ESC and Servo under the L shaped bracket for a cleaner look.

In the future you might want to study the wire and see how twisting it one way or the other causes it to sit. Get that right and you won't ever have to "train" your wire again. I measure my wire and then tin both ends in order to see how they fall naturally so I can know how I need to solder both ends for the desired effect.

So do the AE shock caps work fine on this car? Thought I read a few pages back that they don't screw on all the way?

Kind of stinks you have to spend another $30 on the car. Actually $60 on shock caps for me since my B5 needs them too.

aluminium b5 caps dont thread on right from what i saw in this thread you have to use the composite ones. which are much cheaper.

or you can run the b5 ones on the d413 and upgrade the ones for your b5 if you want. but you will need the plastic standoffs too.

I using associated b5 plastic shock caps and associated aluminum standoffs on my car and they are working flawlessly . Don't get the aluminum b5 shock caps use the plastic ones only . The plastic ones are also cheap .

Hmm. Thanks. I don't like the composite because the bleeder threads strip over time (in my case anyways). That being said I'm thinking maybe it would be best just to pick up a set of B5 composites for the HB and an extra set of composite caps for spares for both cars. Only $7 a set compared to $30 for aluminum.

I wonder if TLR aluminum caps work? I'm thinking no.
