Greetings fellas,

Correct me If I'm wrong but the order of the sway bars resistance wise?

Black - strongest
Silver - middle
Bronze - lightest

Lemme know

Hi.
Which springs are in the Kit? And which springs are recommended on a very high grip carpet track?
I order the d413 in the next few days.
Is it a good idea to choose a car with center diff on high grip tracks?

Greetings

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.





Looks nice! I'm jealous hah I just placed my back order on amain.

I think F gold and R yellow is standard. Look in first post. On carpet I suggest you get gold and red for rear and red and possibly purple associated front. All of them stiffer then standard.

The Kyosho springs are nicer springs but they are $15 a pair while the AE springs are $4.30. I personally can't justify the extra cost for a difference that I can hardly feel and can't see at all on the lap times. That's just me....

Not 100% sure but it looks like your front caster blocks are backwards. Weird angle.

And the steering ball cup on the wheel sides are backwards. The ball cups will bump the wheels when turning.

I was looking at that too...Its a cable clip...go to home depot and search the electrical department...they have a ton of different styles and sizes.

For me i found a little different way that works good for me. I just run the servo wire though the machining of the front diff bulkhead. It's clean and the wire is safe from the diff housing.
