I'm running the Reedy setup, and need to get more rear bite. We have an off camber hair pin, and the car tends to get loose on the application of power, coming out of the hair pin. Current diff oils are 7/100/3, 37.5f/32.5r, 2x1.6f/2x1.7r. Running the copper front sway bar, black rear. I'm thinking of adding some anti-squat, going to the 1 dot C insert. Everywhere else on the track the car feels ok, maybe a touch too much steering since the car rotates so dang quick.

Any ideas what to try?

Drop to 60k in the center... 100k is way to aggressive. Try the stock set up and adjust to your driving.. Remember, Tessman set ups are exactly that, his.

Im thinking about picking up one of these and it will be my first 4wd buggy. I mostly run 8th scale nitro.is this car good for someone that is new to 10th scale cars.

this car feels a lot like an 8th scale, so you should be fine. Check out the RcShox pistons. The 2 stage pistons make the car much better

After reading your comments I went back and tried the AE composite caps again. I don't like the thread feel as they tighten up, but I did go ahead and put them on. For anyone else wanting to try this, here is the parts list needed:
AE 91445 shock bushing, composite one bag has 4 bushings
AE 556146 shock caps (4)
Four 3mm x 22mm screws
Four 3mm nuts
Four 3mm lock nuts

I went to 30,000 front 100000 center and 15,000 rear and the car is locked in on a medium bite track.

Thanks for the parts list! I haven't ran my buggy yet but I picked up the shock bushings and waiting on the caps. What specific 3x22mm screws do you need?

I put 2 race days on my kit so far and haven't ran into issues with the shock caps coming off yet and it has taken some good hits. I say give the stock a chance, maybe a running change was done

Hey all,

my D413 kit will be at my house Dec 2nd and I also ordered Proline 2.4's and tires to go with. Got a bunch of other misc stuff coming .. orange washers, conical washers, 3mm nuts, lunsford turnbuckles, AE shock caps, ... etc.

I am not running 4mod this season .. and bummer is I wont be using this car. After reading about demand issues, I feel guilty putting it on the shelf if someone else is dying to get one. So when it shows up, its going straight up for sale, box unopened. I need the funds for another class car project.

So opinions from the veterans in here ... Ebay it all?

In all honesty, I don't think there ever was a problem that would require a change. In an accident, some where experiencing that the shock cap would pop off. Then once it starts to pop off, it would eventually become looser and need to be replaced. Not unlike a turnbuckle ball cup.

I've had my car since April. I had to replace the front shock caps. But the back ones are still original.

Some just want the security that it would never pop off.
