It sounds soo angry.... like "Feed me more", LOL

I always double check the gear mesh and double check screws too, to see if any worked loose, with the carbon fiber maybe some of the screw are loose, might chatter a little.

I'm 90% sure I saw him running the copper rear sway bar at the Gunsmoke Classic. Someone I know that got a copy of his setup at the event also shows a copper sway bar.

I never had a problem with the noise. I loved it, it's like everyone said it sound beasty. I had the concer since every one at my track was saying that it was way to loud, but again they run associated and losi. I'm the only one that runs Hpi products. So maybe I tought I was doing something wrong thanks for all the tips.

Drewmo and myself both run copper front and silver in the back. Still plenty of overall steering and traction. Have used this combo at most of the tracks we go to.

I agree. Mine sounds like a turbo whistling down the straight. Sounds awesome.

I'm running my new d413 on my local indoor OZITE carpet track. We run JC GOLD slicks sauced up and have stupid traction. I built the car to ty tessman's carpet set up and the car was TERRIBLE. I couldn't believe how bad the car was. It was super tippy and way to soft. When getting on power the rear end would almost bottom out. If I didn't downside the jump perfect it would chassis slap. Since then I have gone to

2x1.6 pistons front and rear
AE red front sprint and AE yellow rear spring
4 limiters front and 3 limiters rear with eyelets screwed on all the way
37.5wt in the front and 32.5wt in the rear
All the way out on the rear shocks
Took of the front say bar

This helped a good amount but the car is still a total mess. The car is very unstable and is just way to soft. I have the stiffest AE springs they have. When getting on power and turning it just wants to lift the inside front tire. There is 3 other HB's at the track and they all have this problem. I'm thinking to try going up 10wt in oil and then maybe even higher. What do you guys suggest? I just can't believe how bad this thing is driving.

Note: My RB6 and RT6 are dialed and I usually go an entire 6 min main without traction rolling and they are super dialed. Just having problems getting the 4wheel dialed in.

Any help would be great! Thanks guys!

Are you running the AVID chassis? What pistons blanks drilled? The RcShox 2 stage pistons and the AVID chassis really made mine planted. I am running clay slick on damp and tacky clay. I used to have the same issue. Also, what are your diffs?

I'm running the stock chassis. Drilled 2x1.6 pistons. My diffs are 10/100/3.

Had my 1st break in 6 months.... Broken front tower mount. I don't recall a horrific crash, odd. Can't complain, but I can't find that part anywhere��

Jcozz,

https://www.facebook.com/DavidRonnefalkRCRacer

THe avid chassis makes a heap of difference to how it handles. I think you also need to go up in oils, Last if I remember correctly was 1.6x2 50 losi in the front 3x1.4 35 losi rear with HP redF and yellowR with 1.8 roll bar.

Can still go a little stiffer with oils and roll bar if its a tight track

I have to agree. The AVID chassis greatly lowers the CG and makes the car much less tippy. And your oils are probably too soft. Ty ran 60wt in the front

Typically when you lift the inside wheel on one end it's because that end is rolling too much compared to the other end so in your case try going up on sway bar in the front - or smaller in the rear.
