Looks like Amain has pushed back the front shock shafts again. I have backorders at Tower and Amain and I've searched around quite a bit. Anyone want to sell me one or point me to a known source? I've only been able to run my car 2 packs since I built it and I took a head on collision with an 1/8th scale. it's been on the bench for a couple weeks now.....super SAD FACE

Thanks in Advance!

So does anyone know the answer to this?

I measured the pins with an old analog caliper and it looks like they are around 2.2 x 10mm but I really don't trust the caliper.

Just a quick question. I see on Ty's setup sheets he likes to run his wing low. I have seen guys flipping the wing mounts to run the wing lower, is this what low means on the setup sheet or is it that he is just cutting the wing to the bottom line? Thanks

I don't believe the setup sheets have anything that references the wing mounts being upside down or not. So the wing low would be that the wicker is cut to the low position. Or that is at least my take on it.
Edit: I can't remember the last time I saw Ty's buggy with the wing mounts in the high position.

They have 17 pairs in stock right now that anyone can buy. I had 2 on back order, so mine are on the way. I also had some points to redeem so I got one of the pairs for $0.89!

i think its flipping the wing mount, if you search google images for d413 wing low, you will see a few car with the mount upside down.
If you look at some other brand buggies, the wing sits about the same place, as the d413 low position, at least my dex210 does, but with a shock tower blocking the air, I think high is the position to setup the wing
