i would check motor wiring first. then check that the diffs are in the right orientation. all else fails reverse the settings on your radio

Most esc can't be programed with the throttle channel set to the wrong orientation.

Dollars to donuts his diffs are in wrong. Sideways, please let us know what you find.

Has your radio ever been reversed on a prior kit or car...
When you bought the HW ESC, did you buy the field card or program box as well.

Check all that was mentioned on wires and diffs, if still runs backwards, buy the HW Field card for like $8 and its a quick easy way to make changes to the ESC including switching motor rotation.

Got some goodies yesterday in the mail, my Schelle chassis and a spare Front Tower & Rear tower for the upcoming outdoor season.

I was able to find a place in U.S. that had a few in stock so a couple guys at our track asked me to order them one as well.

I cant wait to get testing out the new chassis this weekend, just in time as well, since we have a big trophy race upcoming up in a couple weeks

Its about a small to medium sized track. Its Clay surface and gets watered between rounds. We typically run M4 Electrons and Ions for tires.

I got to test drive a friends with the chassis a few weeks back and made big difference in going faster thru sweepers and in some of the 180s, cause then you don't get the 3wheel motion.

I asked a couple pages back, but I am still curious.

Guys running the Schelle, were you already running the longest wheelbase with rear shims? Did you play around with more forward swept front arms?

more than likely they just like shiny stuff and spending money. That is the reason behind most upgrades.

I read somewhere that the more shiny the faster your car goes.

that might be for some upgrades but i can assure you that the Schelle Chassis is more then just some bling on your Rc Car. I have had the D413 since the very 1st week it came out and can tell you that the Schelle Chassis is one of the very best upgrades I have ever bought so that I can notice a difference right off the bat as from changing it from stock. for me it helps me carry more speed going into the corners and also helps me jump the car more consistent. I just got my Schelle so I am still working on a base setup but can say going from stock to Schelle alone with no other changes made a big difference for me and can also notice in my lap times.

P.s I did play with the wheel base with the shims and that did help with the stock chassis but adding the Schelle chassis seemed to be better for me. other then the Schelle chassis, diff oils, pistons and shock oils and adding 2mm shims under the Rear Camber plate I am running everything else stock setup as of now.
