I'm running same oils and springs, 40wt front and 35wt rear and my shocks are built emulsion style and handle everything great, even at some of the bigger 1/8 tracks too

The problem was the o-rings in the shocks. I have had Traxxas x-rings in the car for about 9 months now without replacing them because the shocks haven't leaked one drop. I put the original o-rings in and even with 25 wt oil front and rear it feels stiffer than it has felt in a while, and it has so much more pack now.

Yea I'm still running the Traxxas X-rings since last year, no issues and shocks still feel good. I usually do a shock rebuild and re-lube the rings about every 4-6wks when we can the track layout here. We run on small-medium track that can be high bite at times and running 21mm ride height and no issue with it. With the shock package and the Schelle chassis the car handles everything great, rough stuff, big jumps tight 180s

Longer ball studs as NV529 suggested and also try inserting 4mm long set screws in the unused camber holes- helps keep the ball ends from deforming the plastic bulkheads in a hit.

Ran this weekend with new motor after the rotor in the Savox 7.5 took a crap, not bad for full year of racing indoor and outdoors.
Figured time to throw a 6.5 motor in it and picked up a HW V10 6.5 motor and man has tons of rip, I wish I would have bought a 6.5 sooner, lol

I'm running Ty's Reedy setup and the car is a bit too aggressive off power steering. Any suggestions on what I can do to mellow it out, maybe gain a little longer power steering?

Move what in the front up by 1mm? Are you saying do all of these at once or anyone of these?

The #5 and #6 Ackermann arms really help calm the steering down as well.

First time ever "offroad" club racing Friday night and only made it to lap 4 then got hit by another D413 coming off a jump I got a little sideways and hit head on at the rear wheel. Still stayed the whole night and had fun though !

Now to wait for rear aluminum hubs from somebody that makes some other good parts for the D413 ! Have 2 sets of stock replacements on the way until those are available.
