Difference is roll center only but same kickup. More dots lower rollcenter and less dots higher roll center.

Iím going to have to look into this at some point down the road, I love my D413, tougher than nails, this looks a little longer maybe and a little bit lower center of gravity.

They are talking about emulsion shocks, air mixes with oil no bladders.

Wrong spelling, it should be aeration.

[email protected];15299798]im have run mine on our dry and loose aussie tracks with 7/80/5 in diffs. 37.5wt front and 30wt rear and the car is awesome. One thing i found was the bladder setup with shocks had too much rebound. I cut the bladders and turned them into emulsion which is alot better. More settled off jumps and bumpy tracks[/QUOTE]


Do u have any pics of how the shock bladders look after u cut them?

Ok cool so if I remove bladders and re-build / bleed shocks in the same way as with the bladders it will work?

Default Outdoor Dirt/clay medium traction set up sheet

In search of some set up sheets for hb418 on a outdoor dirt/clay medium traction track.

i googled it and could not find any which is frustrating.
Feels like HB have forgotten about this little beast of a buggy and are leaving all us passionate drivers to figure it out for ourselves.

Besides this forum, (which is very informative and extremely helpful) thereís nothing out there.

The HB website contains nothing.

If if it wasnít for the high performance and two other locals who also have a HB418, I would find another brand that actually gives a crap about its customers by offering support to assist in getting the most out of our rc cars.

I'm just racing on carpet and astro right now but I have some friends racing on that so I'll shoot them a message and see if I can get you something.

Sorry for late response, you cut out the center part (billow) and place the rest in the cap. screw it tight and push shaft up to bleed out excess oil and tighten screw. I find I have to repeat this process 2-times on most shocks.

I think it was mentioned here before. The lack of support set up wise on HB website is concerning. Has anyone done much racing with the D418 on low bite outdoor ? Itís a bit of a toss up between this and the YZ4 - SF
