I must be doing something wrong building the HB shocks. I've put the bladder top on and bled the shocks...do they ever stop leaking out of the little hole? I'm sure it's operator error somewhere. Please guide me in the correct direction.

are you building the shocks according to the post below?

Per page 7 of the manual, but they may have aftermarket caps.

Did you forget to put the bleeder screw back in...

I'm running the HB Alum Caps and have never had an issue with them leaking out.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but did you install the correct seal/o-ring, or make sure the seal/o-ring did not get pinched

As for shock caps, I've been using the associated caps and stand offs, i use a durango fat shock orings at the base of the cap to get a seal, I've also ran the durango fat shocks on the front with the durango stand offs.

Thanks for the reply, Kevin. I'll probably just run the AE shock caps. That is the most familiar for me.

Default Is that right?

Picked up a D413 roller from a fellow racer. Looking to freshen things up a bit and see many, many parts on backorder until:

This product is expected to arrive on Saturday, April 30 2016.

It's the third week of February. More than two months out for basic parts? Is this a gross over estimation, or are parts that scarce for months at a time? Hasn't this chassis been out for a solid two years now? I know, I can bang around on Ebay and find a part here and there from random places on the net, but that doesn't seem right.

At times parts can be hard to get. I usually try to keep 2-3 of each breakable part or parts that are known to break even if I have not broken one yet.

Usually the part you need isn't in stock but everything else is. Then you go back to get the parts that were in stock when you need them and they are gone. I suggest buying multiples of everything.

I have a question regarding roll center adjustment. How do I lower the roll center on the d413 to get more traction? Wouldn't you normally add spacers under the ball stud (raise the ball stud). But the rear ball stud is mounted underneath the camber plate. So what do I do? Anyone mount it on top of the plate? I have the carbon fiber camber plate which has one extra hole but I'm not even sure what moving to the other holes does. I was going by one of tessmanns setup sheets which says to use 1mm spacer between stud and camber plate but that is raising the roll center since is mounted on the bottom of the camber plate and I want to lower it. I think. Lol

The less washers you use the higher the link will be and thus the more traction you will have, at the expense of reducing steering. I also run a 1mm washer with the carbon camber plate, mounted in the middle hole on the first row.

The rear hub has 2 holes for the pin to go through . These adjust roll center also. The upper hole makes for a lower roll center I believe.

Thanks guys... If I adjust the rear end do I also make a change to the front end roll center? Or should that remain constant? And the outer hub hole you are referring to is the hole where the hinge pin goes thru right? So I either want to make the inner stud higher or make it lower at the outer hub area correct?

Only if you make a radical change to one end, would I then change the other. The rear link is more important to get right then the front.
