I know some guys that are removing 2 spider gears from the front and rear diffs in their 44.3 anyone tested that in the d413?

Mr. Fabulous:

Looking good! How did you get rid of the orange? Custom anodizing, or sourcing after market/other brand parts?

Use Greased lightning to take off anodizing.

High grip clay track for a beginner is there a better chassis to start with other than the kit one ? I see a lot of people saying the car is twitchy with the factory chassis. I didn't build my kit yet so wondering if I should start with something else ?

Already got a few exotek parts steering rack, spring perches, wing mount, and diff brace. Was planning on doing the exotek spur setup as well right away.

Was planning on starting with the 15 reedy race setup. Uses kit springs which is a plus.

Local anodizing shops will strip the orange and anodize to your liking. I am doing the same with mine.

Had the orange re-anodized to black.

Just curious if you tried the aluminum chassis?

Build it as it is right out of the box. No need for another chassis. Start with any setup from Ty and then adjust from there.

Why is that people sell these for more than they cost? I think that you can get one for $350-360 w/coupon at Tower. I'm considering buying one. What makes them so much better than anything else? I for one run outdoors and would buy the aluminum chassis because CF would get pretty torn up after a a single battery pack. I'm also curious to see how these do with the Schelle chassis.

because they have upgrades, extra parts, and may include some or all electronics. I've had my car almost one year ,drive it 2 to 3 times a week indoors and out and my CF stock chassis still looks good. Holds up just fine, better than my e buggy
