Hello everyone! My name is james and i have been a member of this forum for quite a while... But as you can see i really havn't utilized it as much as i should. I have been into r/c for about 14 years, I got away from it for a while and of course made my way back. I am posting because i recently purchased a D413 and this thing is amazing... (Now if i could only get my driving skills to come back to match the car) I would be in good shape. I have driven the car at 2 race sessions and 2 practices with times getting better as i go. Now i have been in a few "accidents" with the buggy only to find that during a visual inspection everything seemed to be ok. I recently tore the car down for maintenance and was surprised to find that the front screws that hold the A-Arms into the bulk head had bent pretty good. To the point that i didnt think they should have come out after seeing them. Main point for this posting is that even in a minor incident with the front end, Just give those screws a check as it could potentially throw off the front end. Overall i love the car and look forward to reading all of the input and setups. This may have been covered already. If so my apologies for beating a dead horse I attached a couple pictures to the post of the car in 85% completion as i havn't taken any completed pics.

Hi James! Welcome back to the hobby!! I've just built my kit and waiting to recover from surgery to race mine. Anyway in the first post, it was recommended to pick up some of the screws. Under the "What parts break" section. Here they are on Amain and maybe in stock somewhere else..

Hope this helps

Hi,

I am current building my new kit and am noticing the diffs feel slightly notchy. Is this normal for a new D413 diff?

Thanks,

Mark

Hey Guys, I Have been using my D413 on a sugared clay track and it is an amazing car. I'd even say the best I have ever driven. Next week I am racing on a large 8th scale track with big jumps and its low grip. Just wondering if anyone already has a setup sheet for something similar? Thanks in advance

Jesse

Hey guys, just started to drive the d413. It's starting to coming around but I have broken the rear camber links twice now. The landings were not too hard but just right. Is there a fix? The first few times the stock front shock caps popped off but now seem to be holding.
