Btw...

*doing...*their..

Yea I agree with you. Some drivers are just too good to help with constructive answers for us less talented. The front shock tower mount is the only thing that I have broken on this buggy and I have put it through h3ll. And that would not be any big thing since it is easy to replace and cheap. There again the issue has been availability. I love the buggy, more durable than my 1/8 scale buggies.

BTW I am old, half blind and only had the 1/10 scale for a month. But I have never Cart Wheeled it yet.

Default finger on the trigger...

One last critical bit of information needed.

Does this thing turn?

The D413 turns on a dime, jumps well, it's easy to work on, and yes the best car on the planet!

Saw something on eBay for us "Bad Drivers"

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121586097424...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I ordered one up. Might help glide over jump sides better if I get crossed up on a landing. Could save a shock shaft or two too so I figured why not.

This will help prevent broken front shock shafts and shock eyelets for sure.

Yup.
They have a rear one too which I think is pretty useless but since front and rear have same mounting it would fit up.
Much wider too.

I'm VERY disappointed with the Triad wheel nuts. They're not stock HPI orange.
