The less to take the the track the better
TLR rears are same between 2wd and 4wd.
The 22.2 fronts are narrower than the 22-4 but both come out at same track width, at least this is my understanding.

I have 22-4 fronts and rears and it's pretty clear Torrance modeled the 413 wheels after these.

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.

Parts!
Where is the best source for parts in Canada/US or Asia/UK for the 413?
Started carpet racing yesterday and I'm a lil green with the offroad stuff.

Thinking front tower brace, arms, hinge pins and shock shafts/ends would be good to have on hand. Trouble is no one shop I know of has em all in stock.
Tried Tower, A-main, Omni and a couple overseas shops but no dice. Is there a good one stop shop for 1/10 buggy stuff with good stock for 413?

If the places you tried were outta stock they should have more parts the end of the month.

So I've been running the car for a few months and I thought would post my thoughts on avid vs stock chassis.

I ran the stock chassis for about about 2-3 months, then ran the avid for about 1.5 months. Got the car setup about as good as i could with both chassis and here's what I found.

I've found that the stock chassis allows me to carry more corner speed, accelerates faster, lands better, and has more traction(which I attribute to flex).

The avid chassis seems to mellow out the steering, and overall makes the car easier to drive but it's slower on primary track I run on. Where the avid chassis seemed to show promise was on a high grip bumpy surface where you need something that's very consistent.

I would not say this chassis is a must buy, and it might make you slower if you don't run on super high grip. I'm back to the stock chassis simply because my lap times are faster.
