I highly doubt that the 1/10th scale 4wd Buggy (D413) is due for an update.

Are you sure it wasn't the D815? That is the 1/8th scale nitro buggy due out in April.

i did the lunsford ti on my car but if you also upgrade to AE ball cups you will need different sizes than what they sell as a D413 kit.
wish i remembered what sizes i ended up buying.

That was my question, too. They were certain it was a 415 but I had the same thought as you. I would be surprised if it was true than false.

Plus i would think Torrance has his sleeves rolled up on a new 2wd buggy. My guess is that's up on the list. HB dosn't have a car to sell and TY is a marketing resource just going to waste in 2wd at the moment.
I brought up the 215 aswell, I'm not convinced this rumor is true. Just thought I'd share.

Default shock pistons

I notice Ty's setup sheets use 2X1.6 or 2X1.7 shock pistons. Some of the older sheets show 4X1.35. What is the advantage of 2 hole vs 4 hole?

I'm running the '14 Roar nats setup, with 37.5/32.5 oils. It's good, but I could use some more on power steering. It has a push when I'm starting to get on throttle out of a corner. What's should I try first?

Most of the setups and people are using the 2s, they just perform and soak up everything

I found that when I switched to the 2 X 1.6/1.7, the biggest difference seemed to be in rough sections. Car seemed to glide on top of the ruts instead of the rear wanting to kick around.

definitely overpriced! I've bent lunsfords before also! who makes stronger titanium turnbuckles besides Lunsford for this car? one good thing is Lunsford replaces them for free as they should (for the price they charge for them)

Something like a Hudy spring steel turnbuckle might be stronger.

Did you call straightaway? Exact reason why I don't practice when SCT's are on track.
