Hi guys. I got a used D413 on here and will be racing carpet. I put Ty's ozone setup on it. I notice on the bottom he said Aluminum chassis would make it better. What exactly is the bennifet of aluminum chassis and is avid the only one that makes one?

Avid chassis is used in carpet to elimate chassis flex. I have a complete set I need to get rid of. Pm me for details of you want.

Chris, I used the AE bushings. You can also use the Kyosho bushings

Anyone know if AE 12mm V2 shock pistons (screw on style) will fit the HB shock shaft?

Are your bushings damaged ? Usually I just replaced the O-rings when I rebuild unless one of those are broken. And HPI does not break up any of the kits for any certain parts it is what it is which sucks.

I would also recommend the traxxas x-rings when rebuilding if you are not using them already. part # TRA2362

Enzo I haven't tried those chassis, but I did get the schelle +4 carbon and love it. This weekend qualified in the Amain at Wolcott which I have never done.
