My front end is built exactly like yous, except running 2mm washer on top of caster block, 1mm underneath it. Glad I didn't cancel my pre-order for the D413. Interesting in the manual on-line and hard copy say nothing about greasing the cvds at all.

To the dude with the shaking issues in the front end, have you ran it? I think a couple runs will let the cvd's wear it solving all that. My guess is a bit of lock tight on the cvd barrel. Take them all apart, clean them 100%, build them with no thread lock and just try them on the bench. I'd just run it and keep an eye on it

I hade the same problem with my V3, after bilding it, and i figured out, that i mounted the left and right caster blocks wrong!
Left one on the right side, and right one on the left side....
After mounting them right, the chattereing was almost gone, but i did also shorten the endpoint on my stearing, on the radio a bit. (I hope, you say that that way in english!?)

May it can be your issue as well, worth to check!?

Set your ride ht. to about 19/20. Also run front and rear swaybars. You should also limit your rear droop. 2/3 don't cost anything.

Did all of that late last night. They are fine. My D413 I had on back order says it shipped this morning, Will build that, if no chatter issues the DEX410 needs a new home.

Jcopeland are you giving up! don't' give up! I watched your video and did some investigating on my ride. I wonder does the chatter go away without the tires? what happens if you put the left side CVDs on the right, switching things around like Bman and Incubus mentioned? A little process of elimination….? Was this a brand new V4 kit?

I know the D413 looks pretty awesome…..I still love my center battery chassis Durango though.

Brand new out of the box kit. It still wobbles with the tires off. Hobbico keeps wanting to send me more parts to try. This morning I tried a different set of tires on it. Same thing. These were mounted dirt webs that Jackie at OC/RC did so no balance issues. Got it on a small carpet track I have in a spare room in my house, punched it and the car made a loud snapping sound, came to a very abrupt hauls in the middle of a sharp left turn, and the motor smoked. I'm done with this thing. Going to sell it for spares. Don't trust it one bit. House still smells lol.... For reals though I. Just tired of taking it apart over and over again to not have anything get solved.

If I were you I'd have Hobbico send me an RMA so you can send it in and have them ship you a new kit. If there is a part that is defective they can learn from it and add the cause to their knowledge base to save themselves and more importantly their customers' precious time and money.

One other thing I thought of (just watch thee vid again) was the driveshaft end. You take it apart and roll just the outside portion on a glass surface to see if there is anything off kilter and/or out of square. Just a thought. That wobble looks odd.

I've just noticed that at full lock my wheels will rub a bit on the ball cups. I'm using the Lunsford titanium ball studs and super duty ball cups so this may be part of the reason. I'm also running the JConcepts Inverse wheels with the 10mm hexes. So my offset could be a little different. It seems minimal and I could probably dial it out with a bit of EPA adjustment. It's smooth when I take the wheels off and I suspect it will also be smoother with the Durango wheels and 14mm hexes. With the brushless horsepower and low turns I think 14mm is better anyway. I've rounded off a few 12mm hexes.
