I do believe a wheel lifting is usually sympomatic of the opposite corner (i.e. if rear left wheel is lifting, front right corner is too soft) shock too soft, but I could be wrong...

I agree, since I use yellow rims. TLR has the best color match.

High bit carpet or dirt? What chassis you running i.e stock, +4 or +6 mm?

Check the swaybars for binding also.

I am running the aluminum version. Much cheaper than HB chassis. I think the carbon version would be good for 13.5 class to save weight.

Anyone tried running the ESC in the back? What did it drive like? Seems like it would have a more weight spread

Yeah his buggy looked awesome. Any chance that he was running the Exotek chassis? Sure looks like it from the pictures we can see of it. Now if someone would release a slipper to get ride of the center diff.

His D413 looked really good!
Yes it certainly looks like it not to mention we did ship chassis and parts

Well that explains the rear hubs and in a few shots you can spy the plastic side pods that are turned up (not flat like the other chassis brands). Hard to wait for winter to pass so I can race again. With everything that is going on with the silly season of pro's changing "jobs" and new 4w buggies coming out still happy with the d413 as a competitive buggy. Might have to make the long 4hr drive to a carpet track to play one weekend.

Yes, it's too bad HB lost Tessman but good to see David getting the full factory support. Hope he makes it out to Reedy race.

Hey there peeps

I just got one of these buggies 2nd hand to try out and I was wondering if there are any parts I should stock up on other than what's listed on the first page of this thread?

Also any upgrades you'd recommend. Currently it's got the exotek chassis but that seems to be it.

M3x20 steel screws. These get bent in the front a lot.
