If this is the photo you're referring to then the fan is blowing cool air onto the motor.

I noticed that on David Ronnefalk's car at round 3 of the 2015 EOS series he used a carbon fibre chassis, as shown here http://eos.redrc.net/2015/03/chassis...d-ronnefalk-2/. I was just wondering if anyone has any insights into this, as I thought the Avid aluminium chassis is ideal for high grip indoor carpet tracks? I just ordered the Avid chassis because I am going to be racing on a high grip outdoor astroturf track in a few weeks, and from what I have read I figured this would be far better than the stock carbon fibre chassis.

More then likely its a Prototype HB chassis. Ty & Moller have been running them as well.

I lost one of mine for the Rear Hex before and in a bind I found out that the Tekno Body clip pins work great. I have extras body clips from my EB48.2, so I cut the body clip down to match existing one and its been in use for about 2months now (and that's with racing every week)

Anyone know of front shack shafts from other buggies that would fit the D413? KILLING me waiting weeks for them to have stock anywhere on Earth.

Check your PM.

For others, I found some on ebay in the UK free shipping though.

I said the heck with it and ordered a set of the pro line pro spec shocks. Roughly the same price as a set of stock ones but no need to buy the aluminum cap separate.

The proline ones are actually same length too... I'm looking at the Serpent SRX shocks, would just need to add or remove limiters to it to get same length of 88 & 100

Proline told me to order the rear buggy shocks and use the 5mm limiter to make them the same length for the front. The rear uses the sct shocks.
