any input from Ty?
Torrence said the body had to be made in 3 pieces in order to keep that inward contour on the side pods. He said if they made the bodies in a single piece they couldn't then remove them from the mold.

There is an easy way to do a 1-piece body but I'd need the cad file of the body to make the mold properly for the application.

Lol.....after I posted on here earlier, I went out to pick up a friend n hit the hobby shop to order a couple of things.....
As I'm driving, I'm thinking to myself about coming off the top of the bookshelf like Snuka off the cage, right onto th cab. (I'm immature like that....keeps a brotha young)...
That's when it hit me....
The way they had the ice bucket challenge....I wish I had th ambition of creating "The cab foward challenge" ....
When you just place that body on the living room hardwood floor n take the Superfly leap off the bookshelf right onto the cab.....
....Ahhh, this would be great!!.....n you know it would be mostly the older brothers with an affinity for the cab back being the ones taking the dive.....

Mad injuries....

......................

I've just been browsing this thread cause this car seems interesting....
I don't race (although I might hit the track in the coming weeks) ...A brotha likes to bash....but I like buggy kits way more than anything else n it seems that this one is most durable of the bunch, so I've just been reading up on it with thoughts of getting one.

My question is.....in relevance compared to other 4wd buggies on the market, does this one really stand out in the durability dept.???

........n as far as th bodies go, I think the stock body n the Proline both look pretty awesome......

I don't own this buggy either, BUT I definitely like it better than the rest. I own mostly AE vehicles, and I LOVE the B44, but I've seen how it just falls apart with just the lightest taps in a race. The B44 is all performance/NO durability!! Both Ryans driving B44's were easily taken out when Ty made a small mistake in front of them, Cavalari hit Ty's buggy first, then Maifield slammed into Cavalari. Both B44 front ends were destroyed, and Ty's D413 had NO Damage what so ever! WOW! This buggy seems to be THE MOST durable 4WD 10th scale buggy out there with great performance to boot. If I was to race this particular class, the D413 would be my first choice hands down!!

The d413 is a very durable fast car. But the story of how the Ryan's cars broke isnt exactly correct. Cav got loose and spun. He pulled infront of ty and ty took cavs arm off. Which resulted in maifield running into the back of ty taking his arm off.

So I have been looking for machined pistons or shock piston options..... are there any? what is Ty running? his setup sheets call for 2x1.6 and 2x1.7... so what exactly is he running? ive tried drilling my own... hahaha what a frickin joke... wasted a bunch of time and money on that adventure... never could get them right.. been running 4x2.1 with red xgear springs front and white xgear rears... car seems squirmy to me.. to inconsistent. even tried sway bars orange front silver rear... now it pushes.. car has a TON of traction, and is fun to drive... just looking to make it a tad easier to drive more consistently??

I had no problems drilling out the blank pistons that come with the set and running the 2x1.6 pistons and the car feels so much better. I'm also running TYs Reedy setup and the car feels planted everywhere. The track I run on is med-high bite and gets watered between rounds.

As for other piston options for the 2x1.6, there are the following: Avid, AE, Serpent, Schelle, but with these other options it's not clear if the center shaft hole is the same and I think with a couple of them you'll have to watch how the piston and washers sit together.
