I really like this buggy, cant wait to drive it! The 22-4 was just not right for me... I loved my Durango DEX410 and hope this car is better (more reliable) than the 410 was for me..

i think there's enough material for m4 screws. i'd rather have the m3 screws bend though to absorb the impact energy, otherwise something more expensive could get damaged. on my car i haven't damaged any mounts due to a bent screw.

Wow… This car has SO MANY PARTS! LOL

Yes, this kit comes with the 4-piece body. Notice the con caved side pods that flow air through to the rear like an F1 car. Torrence said he couldn't make those with a 1-piece body, thus the 4-piecer.

I know a 1-piece body is possible but it requires some slicing to allow you to pull it off the mold.

Yeah, that was sarcasm right? lol. Gotcha on the body (ROAR Nats body), the photos on the website are all of the Proline Type R body.

Actually it wasn't! Lol

If you look closely you will notice that it has components/systems comprised of many other smaller components. Lots of them. Lol

I know my 410 inside and out as well as my 4.2 and this is on another level.

I've built a b44.2 as well as a Durango. the D413 is way simpler to build. what do you mean by "systems comprised of smaller components"?
