Im running 10/100/5 and its money on indoor clay. ive tried many different ones, 7/60/3 7/100/3 and 10/100/5 is the ticket for me. if you drop the front you will loose a little on power steering and dropping back you will loose forward traction but will be easier on loose track. on a loose track I would try the 10/60/3. if thats to easy to drive go back up to 10/100/3.


my diffs dont leak, my center did and it was my fault. fixed now.

Hmm, I didn't realize that diff oil weights even played a part in traction rolling. So was he telling you that he dropped his oil weight from his usual to help with this?

Works well. I run on a indoor dirt ( not clay) track with med-high bite. I am using a mix of stock setup and ty ocrc setup and buggy is fast and easy to drive.

Was that chassis aluminum by any chance? I really want this car but can't see paying another +100$ for the avid chassis if there will be a big change like that for the .2 kit. I'm just not a fan of cf.

No he was not using an aluminum chassis. but he did say that for really high bite like SRS, he would use the alum chassis if he was not using his chassis.

just wanted to say after having this car 4 months, knowing what I know now, I would of paid a kyosho price for this d413.i love kyosho and still can not come up with a good reason to get the zx6 even if i pay the extra money for all gear diffs. I think I'm changing my mugen nitro to the d815 when comes out. I'm baffled how much I like this car. Very durable, easy to work on ,and drives itself.

Happy customer, lucky easy e
