I haven't read all of the post but was wondering how everyone is breaking the nut off of the hinge pins? I have had my d413 for about 3 1/2 months now and have had no issues with the pins other then a nut coming off of the hinge pin in a race..

Do not tighten down the nuts or they will shear off. I run mine loose with about .5-1mm of play.

When running 100% full (oil oozing out during diff assembly) I've notice my diffs would "thicken up" after a run. I have a ton of hours on my car (300+) so it maybe a wear related thing. The best solution I've found was to run slightly less diff fluid around 60-75% full and heavier oils to mimic the same "feel" as 100% full.

Lol, yep, the M4 are going to be softer and on clay will wear faster. Have you tried one or the other? We run electrons on packed clay that is almost high bite at times and the M4 work well, but wear quicker. The MC have a tick less grip but last much longer.

Dude, you run on a medium bite track, there is not some magic setup or set of tires that is suddenly going to make your car have way more traction than everyone else. For the last 6 pages almost every other post has been you asking about making massive changes. If you think your car is that terrible, let a couple fast guys take it for a spin and see what they think. In all likely hood the car is fine, and you just need to be a better driver.

just got my d413 in sunny singapore! one of the rare few guys here running this amazing car. my question is sofar the build has gone well, but i notice the front cvd dogbanes barely touch the drive cups of the differential. in fact when the suspension arms are fully down the top of the dogbone is slightly out of the drivecup. is this normal? I've checked if i've assembled something wrongly but i don't think so.......

Default Caster blocks

The standard caster block is 10░ according the manual.

Do anyone know if there is options available with different angles? Or maybe there are different brand caster blocks that will fit?

I'm building the kit to the tessman carpet setup.

When he says build shocks with no bladder what does that entail?

Is there a special way to do this or do I just not put a bladder in?

Do I cut the bladdersm so there is still a seal?

How do I bleed them? With the screw in the cap?
