Only problem I had was I was tightening one of the 4 screws on the center diff and it wouldnt get tight and the screw imbeded into the gear and now it doesnt turn straight when its in the car and I spin it... gonna try it but hopefully wont have an issue with it. Did anybody else use washers for these tiny screws ? Just seems like that is a really soft plastic for that small of a screw....

And my integy driver set didnt come with a 2mm and 3/4 of the screws on this car are 2mm ! Ended up using the 3/32 which is 1.95 close enough I guess !
Center diff.....
It's not seating properly, I had to sand down the back side of each convex gear to free up the entire diff.

Really ?! I didn't think it would be that tight in there. Mine is together and not leaking. I think i just expanded / deformed the plastic where the 1 screw went in to far. It seams to seat fine just that I couldnt tell when it was tight enough.

Think on my next spur i will add really small washers to help that.

I found it best to pre-thread the holes in the diff cup with the screws before assembling the diff. Makes it easier to tell when it's tightening down against the spur gear. I use a 0.050" power driver bit to carefully run the screws in and out of the diff cup. The screws actually get pretty hot from the friction. I run them almost all the way in and let them cool off awhile before removing them. This forms the threads in the plastic to give a snug but not overly tight fit for the screws.

Has anyone tried the optional shock towers or Ackerman arms? Any feedback.

Default Option parts

Love this thread - Thanks guys for all the info. Option parts to the D413 are not falling from the sky, so would someone please make a list of parts fitting. Im really interested in pre drilled pistons. I read earlier in the thread that Avid, Kyosho, AE doesn't work well, but what does work ?
Also i heard the sworkz wing is a really good option.

Enjoy -

I would say start with 24T and maybe carry a 25T. I have a 7.5 on medium sized track and running 25T with mine. The first page has a quick ref. gearing chart to can check out as well.

RCshox (mantis on here) just came out with some predrilled pistons, 2x1.6, 2x1.7 and I believe 3x1.3. Take a look at the site and check out.
