What you guys can do to make it more durable is use to shoe goo and mesh at those seems so the load doesn't fall on the screw points.
A small bead of shoe-goo at the seam of the joining pieces works really well to help hold things together.

Well, it looks a metric shit ton better than the JC body, lol. Also, I have no idea if it is the body or temperature drop. But my car came off at 115 deg after a full back. I have NOT vented the body outside of the standard cut out. It might be the drop in temps, but i would not say the track was cold. I live in Arizona and raced indoors lol. It was probably low 70's at the track.

I do like the "look" of the kit body. But it sits lower and can make wiring a little more of a pain. But the kit body "looks" the faster sitting on the wall before the race, lol.

No love for the JC body yet it looks like. I like the look of the stock shell but don't know if its worth having it done by my painter or just do it solid myself and have him do up a 1pc

actually I have! Previous employer build solid rocket fuel mixers for the space program. Mil-spec is a blast also. We've got a pretty nice inspection lab here at work. Obviously climate controlled, but big enough to CMM most houses. Lol

I have had no issue with the stock body. Ran it it all summer at 1/8th scale outdoor track (since May), and it still looks good. It has a small crack in it down near the bottom, but that is it. I was a bit skeptical of the three piece body, but if you think about it, isn't every short course body three pieces? (bolt on fins) I have some SC bodies with the fins mangle down to nubs, but they are still attached. The stock body is Sofa King sexy, I will stick with it. BTW... I am not a "master driver", I wreck plenty.

I just started building one of these new d413 kits! What front wheels you guys running? I read 22 2wd wheels but was told to run 22-4 wheels by someone else. So im little confused. Thought the car was designed off of 22 wheels.

First post in the thread has a pretty good description of which wheels fit.

I have read it. Let me ask it this way 22 vs 22-4 wheel what is the difference? Is the overall outside track width the same?
