Trying to decide between the HB D413 or the AE B44.3. All my rigs are associated. I loved my 44.2. Never broke it with the rpm arms. Anybody have/had both?

Thanks!!

In the same position and just finished the d413 build and wasn't overly impressed w build quality, lots of slop but we will see how she drives.

So is the consensus to run shorty?

Run a front sway bar if you're not already. Go to 12 deg kickup in the front. Go up on rear diff oil. Run 2mm spacer under rear camber link ballstud on the bulkhead plate. Move the rear arms back. Go to slightly heavier front shock oil. Stand the front shocks up more. Move the rear shocks out on the arm. Just some ideas, I was battle similar issues on mine.

I like how the D413 drives more, but honestly the number 1 thing is ease of working on them, the Dingo is such a pain in the butt to work on in my opinion.

I have to agree with you, the dex was very frustrating to work on. The whole steering/servo section, and those little pivot pin bushings were irritating. I along with many other Dex owners was hoping the V4 was a little more than just updates. Once it was assembled it was ok, but it did drive differently than any other 4wd I have owned..I have a D413 in route...Assembly begins in a few short days..

Use ca glue on a Q tip to apply it on edge of chassis and shock towers.

I was only able to run one pack this weekend. I ended up removing 2mm of droop. I liked that a little better on this track. When I tried to push the car it was still traction rolling though. The track is rutted, so I probably cant do much but check up on those sections.
crap, the youtube feature in RCTECH also fails, lol.

I run on a high grip track....had problems with my front sway bar popping off at the ball cup. Took it off, mounted up the optional 4 hole front tower. Mounted the front shocks the whole way out and put the copper sway bar on the rear. Gave an ALMOST comparable feel of running a sway bar up front, but added a little more steering. Just didn't want the inconsistent feel of one side of the sway bar unhooked.

Your car looks like a handful to drive.
