Lucas Red'n'Tacky gear grease from the auto parts store. Also works great on thrust washers in ball diffs. Full tube will last you, well, for the rest of your racing career.

+1... it's been so long that I can't even remember when I purchased mine.

Does anyone know what the spacing should be for the turnbuckle that goes from the servo horn to the input of the steering assembly? In this photo of Ty's car http://www.petitrc.com/setup/hotbodi...4031116/11.jpg it looks like it may be 2mm but I'm not 100% sure. I got the spacing to about 2.3mm and on one of the ball cups there is a white circle where the grub screw has been pushing against the plastic and this has caused binding of the ball cup when popped onto the ball stud. Does anyone know what the optimum spacing should be so that there is no binding?

If you notice, I think he is using the larger ball cups (sway bar I think) and then you can use 2mm spacer for proper length. With the stock (smaller) ball cups, the spacing would need to be more.

Interesting... I ended up using the larger ball cups as well. The small ball cups specified in the manual were too tight.

Finally got a 413 of my very own! After a year and some change of reading about speculation, then battery rules, release date grumblings etc (pretty much the first 100 pages of this thread are useless lol)
I've had a few opportunities to pick one up last year but by the time I was ready each time I see the dreaded "back order" so I gave up and and started looking into the competition. Actually ended up buying an SB401 but while waiting for that to come in I end up seeing 2 413's on the shelf at Norcal! So sho nuff dived in head first and bought mine.

The build was great mounting the electronics was a bit of a pain. Partially because I had to make do with what I had and also because I like having neat unexposed wiring.
For a motor I used a X20 4T for ishts and giggles. The only other 413 I've ever driven had a 8.5 in it and it was extremely easy to drive. I was curious to see how well the chassis took to the power increase. My devirginizing run last night was just to see if there were any assembly gremlins anyway. But yeah, it was wicked fast and quick but just waay too much or the track and the available traction. Reminded me of the Pikes Peak Escudo from Gran Turismo 2. It doesn't need to be said that I'll be switching to a higher wind.

Ty and Torrance have both said the car is more nimble with the shorty. There's also more space on the chassis for electronics placement and/or tape weights.
