I was lucky enough to run a pre-production setup for them to test and I was very impressed with how well the buggy performed in a variety of surfaces from loose and bumpy, to carpet offroad. No complaints about it one bit.

Default Diff. O'Rings

I see the diff. O'rings 66595 is not longer available from HB. Does anyone know of a replacement that will work. Part number would be nice if you have one.

Thanks in advance.

I have a +4mm Ecotek chassis. Anyone have a good set-up for a med/high grip indoor clay track for this chassis?
Thanks!

If you ran the car before getting the Exotek chassis on the same track, then I would start with the same setup as a base and then adjust from there as needed. Only thing I would potentially start with is maybe slightly thicker shock oil as the new chassis will increase the overall weight of the car some.

ive ran the car twice with the exotek chassis absolutely loved it, went with 3x1.3 pistons front and rear losi 37.5 /32.5 with the heavier chassis and seemed to jump and land better for me ..emulsion w/HB yellow orings

I run on a med-high clay-dirt mix with sauced m4/super soft tires depending on moisture in the track sometimes we end up on slicks

Just built a D413 for races next year, and it's really a high quality kit! The only complaint I really have is the use of 0.5" M2 button hexes. Stripped a couple.

So, before it gets thrashed at the track, here's it for posterity!

Nice looking buggy, good job..
What gearing did you go with did you build to stock or make any changes on set up?

25T pinion on a 6.5T. F/C/R diff at 6/100/10.

Shocks at Losi 40 front and 50 rear, full rebound front and half rebound back.

Tires using AKA Impact for both front and rear. Have yet to hit the tracks though so will probably have to make adjustments as it goes.

Also, added a WTF fan where it blows the motor, but still wondering if it is really necessary. The airflow seems a little constricted though, and the car is really loud once you put the body on.

Does anyone have opinions as to whether the airflow is good for the d413?

1st thing ,CAR LOOKS GREAT.

Ive had my d413 for 2 years now and reviewed a lot of set up sheets. How did you come up with 25t pinion, 6 100 10 and 40 50 shocks?

Its winter and you should not have any airflow problems. That 25t is going to cause to much heat.

Seems your gonna run out door dirt. I do too and found 10 50 3 20t and 42.5 f and 37.5 rear is good starting point. I hope im helping, not trying to knock your set up. You might teach me something.

Hey no worries thanks for the tips! Tbh it's summer all year round in the tropics where I'm at, so heat is definitely a concern. As i've said, haven't took it to the tracks yet.

I'm just stepping one tooth up from the recommended gearing on a 6.5T, and for diff (this is the first time i'm playing with a center diff chassis, my idea was the front to have a little less bite compared to the rear (have a tendency to jump and land front first), thus 6k weight on the diff.

The shock weight is again to have a softer suspension in the front since again i tend to land front first. The rear is done slightly stiffer and lower for track grip?

There's definitely gonna be some rebuilding to be done after the first run at the tracks, haven't had the chance to even bash it at the local park yet due to rains.

Will definitely keep your setup in mind!

Just my experience with 7 100 3 diffdiffs rear tires wear faster than front. I like my tires to wear even like 8th scale. When I went 10 100 3 tires wore even . if your landing nose down give the car some throttle in air to raise front up little before landing. 6k or 10k is viscosity of oil not 6oz or 10oz. Just making sure you know.

Still working on that air throttle control haha, it's the constant worry I'll lose control once I land and hence tend to loosen up throttle.

The normal setup we have here is heavier diff oil at the rear. I'm quite inexperienced at mucking about with diff oils. Is there a reason you run with heavier diff oils in front?

appreciate the help!

Heavy front diff fluid will increase on throttle steering. Hauling azz around turns. Lol.
