It’s a d413. Chassis,center dogbones and steering arm. (Find the other changes, we’ll make a list) I do not think it is hard to work on.

Yeah, it seems it’s just a D413 with the following changes from factory kit (that I can tell).

Differences
Chassis
Body
Electronics layout
Center dog bones
Steering arm
*exotek split center diff mount
*exotek center diff assembly
No forward or rear upper decks (even the parts under the shock tower mounts.
Shock caps (available, but not in kit)
*exotek rear hubs (this one’s ironic).

So when I first noticed he was using them, I thought “I don’t think I’d need those”. Today, in lap two in practice before today’s club race, I landed awkwardly on a large double and heard a “SNAP”. Sure enough, my rear wheel was then dangling in the breeze. I was done for the day...no spare. Didn’t remember til I got home that I could have changed the roll center and used the upper hole. Oh well. It just wasn’t to be. I guess I’m buying the aluminum hubs!

be curious to see what they comes back from the worlds into a production kit.

still think exotek could have something forward weight oriented out there pretty quickly on the D413 platform

Also wonder if hb could lighten up the outdrives from the front and rear diffs a touch. Maybe shorten them a couple mill. cvds go in a bunch. Maybe drill a hole in the side also. As seen on some light weight 1/8 stuff. Just to help the popular 13.5 class. But whateve.

yeah some lightening along with strengthening of the the drivetrain would be worth while.

I wouldn't mind seeing a company run with a heavy duty light drivetrain setup that rivals what MIP offers, but can still handle mod. Or, just sell a vehicle out of the box in a spec racer flavor for weight, I think losi has a buggy (2wd) like that?

As for getting to the diffs and some other changes, yeah, the D413 could be a bit easier to work on. Hopefully it something the D418 or D419 (heh) can address.

+3 Hope it comes out soon and it's easier to work on. Maybe half as many screws to take the diff's out

You are correct. If no "surprises" arise. The all be 2wd would be the last quarter of the year I presume. Just in time for 10th scale season to start here in mid US.

Made my own d418 copy using a Avid chassis I had laying around. Race on carpet today and it was Amazing for first time out. Have a few improvements I would like to do, but big step in the right direction on high bite. My pace was above all today which makes for a fun day at the track.















edit:
Photobucket sucks now... Still tweaking the center brace but a ball cup down center works and makes it very stiff. I am looking to have some flex from the front so this is the current brace I am testing. Need to still drill two more holes as I would like to have 5 total for adjustability. I need to get my hands on some carbon fiber I think. Pretty happy with the way it drives so I might try my carbon fiber chassis next. The center drive shafts are Tekno. The front needs to be cut. Tekno is aluminum so I JB Weld this one in the center tube. I have another stock one I stretched with the stock steal and just soldered that with proper non-electric stuff. Neither have broke from testing. The Tekno shaft I made about 147mm vs. 150mm for some extra allowance for flex. If the drive shaft bottoms out in the cups it can bend the shaft.

I will try and fix that. Seems photobucket or RCTech is blocking the pic links.
