Its one of those damned if you do and damned if you don't on your order. I've seen past posts of ppl helping out or telling where kits are in stock. Have you tried calling those places or are you holding out for your order...

When I found mine, I placed a order for mine and then 2days later after calling numerous shops found it in stock, so ordered it and then cancelled my previous order for refund.

I personally called a couple shops and they did have them on the shelf. I have since told ppl about them and they are gone now. They sell out quickly for sure.

get one or 2 of these IF you have a dual charger
I have a duo on 2 power supplies and can charge 4 2s 7200 batteries in only minutes!
or 4 4s or 6s batteries also!

Yes I've call ed all the shops everyone has listed to try and the only one that had 1 left in-stock was RC excitement but $469 +shipping not really worth it I guess I'm screwed no matter what. Sad thing is that how many orders has HB/HPI lost due to lack of production?
Tell you what if Tekno RC even mentions a wheeler before I get this my order WILL be canceled!

I will say that the d413 seems to have brought back my enthusiasm for racing. The amount of joy it brings when I drive it cannot even be described. I have had 4wd buggies before, but the feel of this car is just so amazing. I dont enjoy working on it, but driving it is a blast. I keep forgetting I am racing, because I am having so much fun just driving it. I dont think I have ever owned any RC as easy to drive hard as this car.

On a second note, since this thread has turned into a Durango support group, I'm out. Enjoy yourselves.
Really? When did this happen?

If you read my post it was not biased in any way towards one car or another. I spoke facts about the reality of subject matter. I think outside of some dissatisfied folks due to difficulties in finding parts and kits, pretty much everyone following this thread praises the D13. Piss poor attitude on your part to depart a thread because some people disagree with your personal opinion.

I liked your response.

They all have an issue or three, especially more depending on driving skill and track type.

Most people have a certain brand and think its gods gift to RC because they happen to end up with it.

Has anyone had issues get thing the screws out? My screws seem to "stick" to the chassis. I had the issue with button screws and flat head screws. I cant even get the server mount screws out. No lock-tite anywhere either. My button head screws actually pulled a thin piece of the laminate up with it.

I love the car, but don't like the slop in the ball cups. Is anyone using something else other than the stock ball cups?
