If anyone looking 2mm screws for the arms and diff that use the lager 1.5mm allen size PN Racing makes them. These seem to live longer and not strip out so easy.

Did this since the car came out and it works.
A little work but you won't break another outside rear link end. Grab a new pair of cups, Scuff up the little divot on each side where it would break and clean with alcohol. Take carbon fiber plate and scrape the edge with a razor blade to make CF powder. Put some powder in the divot and add a drop of thin CA. I used aka glue. It doesn't take much. Let it dry (no accelerator) and file any lumps that may interfere with the hub. I'm 100% confident it works and have done a few other cars at the track for ppl.

I broke a rear rod last week. I just boiled mine for 12 minutes and they are less brittle and more flex. I will see if that solves the problem. I do like the carbon dust idea. Thanks yeti

I have not ran the Schelle. But I do run the +6 HB chassis on carpet tracks and it definitely helps calm the car down with the traction being so high.

The standard HB chassis works great on any track that is low-medium/high grip.

The Plus 4 Schelle Carbon Fiber chassis is worth getting and run it on our med/high bite track just fine. I have it on my D413 and made a big different in the rough sections or whoops, plus it jumps better and stays planted better in the 180s and tight turns.

Sometimes with the stock chassi you would get the 1 wheel lift in tight turns or if going in or out of tight turns.

I run the aluminum Schelle on Carpet. Much stiffer ride helps. Also setting the ride height low was a huge difference.

Anybody still stripping out the ball ends from the camber mounts of the nylon bulkheads? Are 'bulkhead savers' needed?

I've been running the plus 4mm schelle carbon or the +4 schelle alum chassis, and both helped quite a bit on medium to high bite clay. I've also run the alum on carpet and I'd highly suggest alum here. Lowers the CG quite a bit and makes the car stiffer. I may even go for a +6 myself soon.

I am considering this buggy, but parts availability seems terrible. Lots of guys pushing me towards a 22-4 2.0

I hate these kind of decisions!

Since the new ownership parts have been a ton better. You don't have any issues anymore. Just check out Amain and everything that is not labeled HPI which is screws, is in stock.
