the manual says the fronts are 3x88mm and rears 3x100mm

For the next qual I cut out the bladder, threw a screw in the vent hole and ran 1 emulsion and 3 vented bladder. LOL.
Do you use foam compensators in the caps? Those are supposed to prevent blowing out the bladder.

I've been running M4 Ions at most of the tracks around me (high grip, some clay). They aren't always the best, but they work 90% of the time around me. We've had a lot of luck with Electrons locally too.

then try something different, part of the fun of racing is experimenting with different setups or tires. Not sure why you need approval from us to try something

I haven't switched out the rear but currently both my son and I are running Kyosho shafts and eyelets up front. We both broke front shafts in the first day we ran the car. I believe it was our fault running too much droop. Our track doesn't stock HB parts so I had to improvise to keep running. I bought the Kyosho 50mm shafts and run 2.5mm limiters inside and on Tys set up the 24.5 mm stroke. Not sure why the manual says 100 and 88, maybe they are going eye to eye and including the shock body? The actual shaft is 42mm in the front I believe.

First night out with the D413.

I put it together this weekend, and my girlfriend is so pissed at me for ditching her for the weekend. (I was a jerk but the RC had to be completed) Any way got it together and showed up on race day having never driven a 4wd buggy before.

1 heat B main: ended up 4th. I was adjusting trim and tripping out how different it handles compared to my SC truck.

2nd heat B main: I get used to it, end up in first place until the the last lap where I got passed close to the line.

final heat B main: I try a little harder and manage to finish first. BOOYAKASHA BUMP to Amain final. (my first win and I have been racing touring car and SCT 4x4 for 5 months).

A MAIN FINAL:

These guys are fast as hell. I avoid a pile up and let the fast guys by as they lap me. End up 6th.

I am not a good driver. THIS BUGGY ROCKS!

I'll toss to some pics up soon.

Benjamin
