I read a post on here from Torrance I believe saying that Kyosho X Rings work well instead of cutting the bladders, can somebody confirm if these are the correct ones?

So how big off a deal is it to change the diff in this buggy. Is there really a lot of screws to take out to get to the diff?

Thanks

Its like 11 for the rear (plus 4 are around the center diff). About 11 for the front and top shock nuts (plus 4 are around the center diff). With only nine 5 min heats last night I pulled, changed fluid, and reassembled both diffs between runs with a cpl races to spare. Hands down the easiest buggy ever for diff changes is the DEX410 (which I own) and the D413s are not a pain to me.

Those are for the bottom of the shocks and are not, in anyway related to the bladder.... Cutting the bladder= emulsion style shocks

I bought the Avid chassis and have not installed it yet as I have seen mixed reviews. I am thinking about getting the Schelle +4mm chassis but wanted some feedback on it first. So if anyone is running the chassis can you please give me some feedback. Thanks.

General consensus seems to be:
High to very high grip track=Avid chassis-stiffens car and takes away grip.
Low to medium grip track=Schelle chassis-lengthens car and calms down aggressive steering and improves jumping and stability.

Haven't seen that video yet but I've heard they're putting a 4wd buggy out in the market. What a unique design.

Looks like it. The video you linked is for a Serpent.

Hi guys,

I have one of these on order and was hoping someone could clarify this for me...I currently run a Losi 22 2.0 and have front wheels and tires already glued up for when I race 2wd buggy. Can I also use these on the D413? I found this on the first page of the thread but wasn't sure if they mean that the 22 2.0 or the 22-4 wheels. I'd also like to use the rears from my 22 2.0 as well. The less to take the the track the better

Quote:
Kyosho, Associated, Losi, etc all have very similar offset for rears these days, and with the included 12mm hex, they should all work.
In the front, obviously D413 rims work, Losi 22 and 22-4 have the proper offset (22 rims are only 2mm narrower), and Associated 4WD fronts will work but end up in a slightly narrower width. Ty won the nationals with Associated offset rims, and has run 22 fronts since then. Kyosho 4WD fronts are very close and Yokomo 4WD fronts seem to work well too.

The rears will work fine. But 2wd front tires would be too narrow for a 4wd buggy. Sure, they'd fit, but you'd be giving up front traction under power, which is afterall, why we run 4wd. You should really get some actual 4wd front tires and wheels. Any wheel sold as 22-4 front wheels will work, using the included 12mm hexes.
