Hope this helps
This is my first competitive buggy, got the itch to start racing so I picked up one of these kits a few days ago. I've spent the last few years tinkering with the go-slow crawlers and one of the prerequisites for doing that is having a lot of hardware on hand. So what's my point? after wading through this whole thread in the past couple of days, my only contribution would be that you shouldn't bother buying 10 flat head bolts for $4. Get a bag of 100 at McMaster for $8+ shipping. I don't remember HPI kits having shoddy hardware, but the bulk hardware from McMaster will be as good if not better. Not sure if I'm allowed to post a link so I just left it out, it's easy enough to find on their site if you want.

I am looking for a servo to throw in my D413, which should be arriving shortly.

It looks like Ty is running the Savox 2274 (.08 Speed/347.2 Torque) and that would be the easy choice, but Beach Hobbies just got in the new aluminum case Savox 2282 (.075 Speed/319.4 Torque).

I suppose either will be up to the task. The aluminum looks great, but it does come with a 20gram weight penalty.

Any thoughts on this matter?

For the benefit of anyone interested, I have done some internet research and read quite a bit about noisy 48 pitch gears. Some people report good luck with a given brand while others report excessive noise with the same brand. After reading about gear geometry I have concluded that the problem is inadequate "Tip radius" and "tip relief" causing the noise.

I don't know yet if the problem is a batch to batch, varies with manufacturer, or varies with number of teeth.

While I'm at the local track tonight I will see if the have diffrent brand pinions and do some research.

For now all I can tell you is to reduce gear noise look for pinions that have large "tip radius" and "tip relief". See the link above for more information.

A long time ago, one of the pro drivers at the time (I want to say Kinwald, but not sure), said that you should always run the same brand pinion and spur. That way, the tooth shape and profiles would match and be most efficient. Of course, this way back when making time and finishing a race was a lot harder!

I ran a trinity this past weekend instead of the robinson pinions I was using, it seemed much quieter. I also use a TLR alum pinion with my 10.5 and it is quiet.
