My suggestion to read the first post assumes nothing about whether or not the OP has updated the first post, because I know he has. In fact very close to the top it states that the first post was updated 4/12/15. If he reads the first post, and still has a question then fine, but like I said before nearly every vehicle specific thread is laid out this way. Being that he is not brand new to the forum, he should know to look there first. Its just like all the people that ask the "How should I gear my car with a X.5 motor?" question. The answer is in the instruction manual, (except for this car because the manual doesn't give gearing suggestions) and if you can't bother to thumb through the book of information that came with your car, then I can't bother to answer your questions.

Why is it that some people have such problems with my posts, and must resort to name calling?

My post is clear, answers the question correctly, and isn't insulting or mean spirited. Do people just not want to hear the right answers?

Because you keep giving the same jerk move responses in every thread you post on? You don't come off as remotely friendly, so that is why. You did ask... answered, and you didn't even have to look at the first page of the thread

What makes my responses a "Jerk move"? And the thing about not having to look at the first page made me laugh.

I need some help I was I'm in the middle of picking a buggy.

Anyone have any input on the pros and cons of this Buggy

Here is what I have so far:



HB D413 Pros
Tough
Comes with Center diff already
The Designer answers question on RCtech
Not many updates
Not many Setup changes simple
Donít need Hop-ups needed



------------------------------
HB D413 Cons

Hard to get parts.
Have to have parts on hand
Not many updates
Need Aluminum Shock caps
Not many setup changes

Thank you all

This past weekend was first time outdoors with it, I'm running the HB Reds Front and HB Gold Rear. I'm still on the original Reedy setup from TY and so far liked how it handled.

The biggest change I made this weekend was changing the rear shock oil from 30 wt Losi to 35wt Losi

Hahaha sorry I had to seize the opportunity. I ran on an outdoor track with this car once, I ran Proline VTR wheels with M4 compound suburbs in the rear and transistors in the front. I ran the kit springs with VRP 2 hole 1.6 x pistons front and rear. I believe I ran my oil somewhere around 40 front 30/rear and it was dialed. Track conditons were loam with a loose layer on top. Motor was a 10.5 geared at 21/72.

As for giving tire suggestions or people asking... maybe some are running for first time or first time outdoors and looking for a possible starting point. Gawwd forbid we try helping or sharing info... last time I checked that's kindof the point of the thread is to help and share info or our findings for the great buggy.

Yea tires could be different from track to track, but if someones asking for a starting point I'll try to help them.

If needed I'll see if I can find the video of the track we ran at and post up, so if others have a big loamy track it gives them an idea.

Im going to go up to 40 in the front 37.5 in the rear since at this time im running the stock pistons...

You really don't need Alum Shock caps... I'm still on the stocks ones from last September.

Yes, some parts are hard to find right now, depending on what parts are needed. I was lucky enough to find parts at another online store when the typical Amain or Tower didn't have them.

The car flat out performs and performs well.
I like that my one setup so far works at 3 different tracks, that's a huge plus in my book.

I think you can be abrasive without necessarily meaning to be. I have the same problem and have to be careful so that a post that I see as a matter of fact response doesn't rub someone the wrong way. Even being aware of it I don't always succeed at that.

There is nothing wrong with telling people to read the first post in the thread. I usually try to answer the question at the same time I mention the first post or the manual having the answer. Just comes off as much more polite. And if it bothers you to answer frequently asked questions, why respond to them at all?
