Dealt with him trolling as an associated fan boy in another thread, hahaha I've been checking this car out as well as the xray still not sure reading both threads it's comical the people you see. How do you guys like this kit seems the most durable, any experience with the aluminum chassis any issues with the kit?

that's odd.ive beaten my buggy bad and only thing I've broke was front tower and bent screws in front. Maybe u are over tightening things..just a thought

Thanks they both look like great kits the d413 definitely looks more durable but the xray looks like it would be more friendly to work on and adjust things both great both have down sides and plenty of pluses just really unsure gonna have to just pull the trigger on one plus side is on the d413 I can get $60 off at tower with free shipping once it comes in Amain doesn't have a deal that good on the xb4

Xray parts are also pricey

iScream, it is for 2 packages of caps, so a full set of 4. If they don't sell I'll just return them to Tower, but since it seemed like they were back ordered most places I wanted to give someone a shot at them before I took a hit on it to ship back. If not, no big issue.

I know this isn't D413 specific, but I'll throw it out there. I run a Savox 2274 in my D413. I've noticed there's a lot more resistance when turning the servo by hand (no power to it) than my other Savox servos. 1257, and 1258. I first noticed it when turning the wheels by hand, but then disconnected the servo arm to rule out binding in the steering. I don't remember it being so tight when I bought it new. I send an email out to Savox as well, but thought I might get a quicker response here.

The 2274 is brushless... they will have more resistance to turning by hand.

They might be slightly more expensive then other brands, but 1; you don't need to buy them very often as it doesn't tend to break & 2; if you do need them, it's not normally too hard to get them, unlike HB which has always had a problem with spares, I've had a Cyclone TC & a D4 in the past, both were a nightmare to keep on the track & it was the main reason I didn't jump on a D413 when it came out.

Comments like Hot Bodies always has problems with spares MUST be a location thing for you.... Other than the dock workers strike recently delaying orders I have had no complaints. My D8 was bomb proof... no need for spares. I had them, they sat new in package..in my pitbox.

I believe that mainly from the shorter chassis. The Schelle chassis was made to help eliminate that and from what I've seen at our track and tried out a couple of the 413s with the Schelle chassis you can definitely be a little harder on it in the corners and sweepers.

Now there are also a couple of fast guys still running stock chassis, that are hard and fast on them in the corners and don't see theirs doing that, so will ask what setup and springs they are running.
