I love my 413 but it sounds like a coffee grinder on the track. Looking for suggestions on how to quiet the drive train.

Thanks.

I was just going to ask the same thing. I keep checking all the same sites, but no luck so far. I'm surprised that Tower hasn't even listed it for preorder.

The first batch to hit the US usually are not large and between Team Drivers and International Distributor orders there isn't any left. The 2nd wave of them should be available on Tower and else where shortly.

**This is just how it has been in the past on some new HB items so this is not how it maybe for the caps.**

Only thing i have done was grease the gears. To be honest though, I love the sound of the buggy. Makes it intimidating while coming down the straight
