I've performed zero modifications to the bell crank/steering rack.

Also running the stock servo saver, and I've finished within the top 3 positions in every race so far. Just sayin.

seriously, where did you get that purple wire

Tried it, nope.

I know this is an odd question but does anybody else's car sound differently than most other cars. I'm not sure if its the cars drive train, motor or mesh but mine just sounds different.

The D413 is probably the loudest 10th scale 4wd buggy at the moment.

Most R/C's with a center diff tend to make more noise in comparison to a 4wd with a center slipper, or at least it seems that way to me.

The center diff bulk head may also be transferring sound to the carbon fiber chassis, and in turn, the chassis resonating that sound. Kind of like one of those big oriental gongs.

There's my theory for the day. Now I'm off to drink coffee, and play with toy cars

How much drag is their in your drivetrain? Once I lift off the buggy seems to slow down quite quickly.

The most common for the blanks is to drilled them 3 x 1.3mm. You can use this setup both front and rear.

Does anybody know if the there is some other manufactor of the little black plastic piece that's under the clip that holds the wing that fits?

I've lost three of those and it's quite annoying to order a complete wing mount set, when you just need that piece. Otherwise I haven't broke a thing on this machine yet.
