I never liked the slop the shocks had. They moved inside the body, I tried a set of RC shocks pistons and VRP's neither got rid of it. The main problem was the bushings not being tight enough, the same reason TLR went to machined internals and pistons. Our tracks have quite a few big jumps and I bent a couple front shafts on the HB stock shocks. For me I think the TLR's will last longer.

So raced my buggy last night after making some setup changes. Buggy was great. I was on a tq run with 3secs over 2nd and blew it on the last lap with 3 bobbles. 2nd qualifier I was beating the TQ by 6 secs and had a couple bobbles and still got tq by 3secs. I ended up finishing 2nd in the main but had fast lap, fastest top 5 and fastest top 10. Still need to make a couple more changes and this thing will be unstoppable.

I pulled the trigger on a D413 today.
My "local" track is an indoor clay track. I ordered the following tires to start with...
-JConcepts Barcode (Gold)
-Pro-Line Electron MC
-Pro-Line ION MC

I was thinking of ordering some AKA tires as well. What other tires might I try on an indoor clay track with this buggy?

If Gold works on your track... 2.2 Dirtwebs are fantastic. I almost run them exclusively. I run the AKA foam. Ihave not tried the dirt tech insert yet.

I didn't like my electrons on this buggy. dirt webs and chainlink were really good. also i would advise not to use the stock wheels i found them to be kind of cheap in comparison to other wheels on the market.

+1 on both dirt webs with AKA foams on TLR wheels. Great traction and tire wear.

Thanks for the tire recommendations.

I'll order up some different rims, AKA inserts, and the Dirt webs to try as well.

I also ordered 3 pinions to test out with my 4000kv motor. 24t, 26t, and 28t.

Like typos when wet and tacky. Chainlinks when a little dry and dusty.

Are u guys sanding down your tires to what u like or using right out of the bag? Also when I'm watching racing on TV some indoor clay tracks are dark chocolate color and others milk chocolate, what's difference, Harder, softer, more traction?

Well this past weekend was first race on the Schelle chassis and felt great, its probably one of the best investments for this buggy. It jumped flatter, felt more planted and felt like you could get on it harder as well in the corners. With the ESC in the back of car and the RX up front, the car had great balance, I threw it on the scales and only the RX was just a little lite. With the current layout we are on, I was able to cut 3sec off lap times.

Setup wise, for the most part is still the TYs original Reedy setup, with a couple slight modifications to it.

In 2 weeks we have our end of the Indoor season trophy race, so definitely curious how it will do.

I would probably say moisture content would be the color difference as well and the dirt/clay mixture

I use tires straight out of the bag. I also only use water to clean them. I don't like the way the tires feel after sause or a simple green bath.

I use mine out of the bag, I usually wash them with Simple green after they are glued up, it also seems to help with removing the residual mold release compound from them as well. I usually clean my tires with rubbing alcohol before gluing them and they tend to leave a yellowing mark on the paper towel.

There are a few people at our track that will quickly take a sander to them to scuff them up and basically put a little wear on the tread.
