That really is the most awful color on a RC car ever. Gotta change that pretty soon!

The oils I'm using are Associated 37.5 front with 2X1.6 and 32.5 rear with 2X1.7. The shock position of the Nats setup was great and I moved the rear tower in one hole as the track got more slippery and that seems to help it keep turning. The high wing also seemed to make it more stable with our big, fast track.

On a side note, I had an original B44 a long time ago and hated every second of it. Haven't had a wheeler since then. But this car is actually fun and I'm glad I gave 4wd another chance.
Ran your setup at Rockford tonight. You are correct. Totally dialed. Steering is so reactive I had to slow my servo down. Once I did that it was on rails. By far the best this car has ever been for me. Thanks for the tip.

No need to read 473 pages. The first post (like almost every vehicle specific thread on rctech) has tips and tricks, including info about what wheels fit.

Expensive break... Technically I could still race the first hole is still useable


Has anybody else broke like this? Just wondering if this is a common breaking point requiring a spare.

We have quite a few D413's at our local track and I have never seen that part break and believe me when I tell you, some of these guys crash the car really hard.

Car looked good. I saw you were running Dirt Webs all around, but didn't ask what compound?

Front shock tower mount, they are super strong but the two that I've seen break at our track have almost a shattered look to them, multiple breaks/ pieces missing. Neither of these have been from normal wrecks. One was destroyed by an on coming short course and mine was from a really dumb wreck, me and the triple weren't getting along that day.

Maybe it's a coincidence, but I always seem to run better with it high. So, I would say yes.

Pretty much the only thing I have seen break was the front shock tower mount. That being said, most people who broke the one that came with the kit replaced it and have not broken one since. Not sure if the original was brittle or just coincedence.
