On Petitrc, the 3 set-ups I've seen and using for reference for Med-High bite clay show people using 15-100-3. For my track I'm starting out with 10-100-3 and will go from there.

I'm planning on picking up a 2nd Front Diff to have on hand for easier diff changes.

Which "Box stock" set up are you guys running? Per set up sheet (page 36) or per instructions? They are not the same.

my car is mostly built per the instructions. My sway bars are silver front and rear and maybe a couple other small things. My shorty is in the middle position. but camber links and shock positions are kit. I also run no limiters and have the eyelets to the bottom line

Is the looser diff in the rear to help the car rotate? With front diff tighter more on power steering? I can tune ball diffs with the best of them but pretty new to gear diffs so just curious if the same principals apply?

I bought mine from Harmony Models on Pitt St. But there are other very good shops for screws. Most of my screws/hardware I get from Jet Hobbies on Victory Avenue and also RC Hobby on first floor, Hung Cheung building near KWS.

I've seen a few people mount the fans either behind the motor or on an angle without a bracket you'd normally get to attach on the can. Are people just using double sided tape to hold down fans for the motor?

yeah, you can use tape. I also tried shoe goo, but that failed quickly. Now I am looking to get an onroad mount.

or

I am doing the shorty config, so I plan to reuse those screw holes

first raceday with d413. i was put with 1/10 2wd(sc,st). only 4wd but i didnt care i wanted to run it. out qualed most 4wd sc guys though.

Car drives good. i have notice the weight difference between the durango and 413 makes the 413 a little more tricky to drive. But i do not have nearly enough time on buggy yet for it to be setup for me.

went on to get 2nd with my durango ST despite not driving it before the main.

But biggest thing....i raced the day and didnt break anything not even small. I think I can get used to this.

Thanks mate! Can I ask what brand? Starting my build soon. Would be great to use these screws to start with!
