if its in nimh mode lipo won't kill it. The only difference is lipo mode has a LVC, so if its in the wrong mode worst case you over discharge your lipo, not damage the esc

That will be the second Trackstar ESC I have had bad luck with. I will just wait for the tax refund and get a Tekin RSX and be done with it. I checked all my wiring and it was correct. Too bad as it is a beautiful piece of workmanship, and I have heard of others having very good luck with them. I was told the D413 will not accept square packs, terrible. I love those square packs and have them in my DEX410 and DESC410 as well, they are awesome. I do not ever want to buy a vehicle that you have to use saddles, yuk!!!

rsx and be done sounds like a good plan. They're the best for a reason.

I also believe they can run High Voltage(7.4 volts) servos as well, nice.

Anyone had trouble with the new v4 ballcups moving in on the camber links during a race throwing out your camber settings they have never popped off and you can adjust them without inserting a hex driver but I hope this is not a new problem that will occur all the time

I have the same problem with the v4 on carpet.

Hello names tony. I been running this car for few weeks and I love it and been doing really good with it. But I been having the problem that seems alot of people are the car feels a very twitchy and I feel like I need more rear bite and less steering . I been reading and I ordered 21 blocks for the front so I'm going to give that a go. Also I going to try putting holes in the rear pad like you said. A front sway bar also helped a little. Diff is 7/3 and shocks are front dark green 2x1.6 35/ black spring 3x1.6 32.5

Run the Dino set up and go from there. Running thinner oil in the front diff gets rid of some of the aggression on power. Also keep an eye on ride height, it's very sensitive to it I find.

Yes, the RSX can have a 7.4v bec for HV servos

The new ball cups don't pop but they do jump threads easier for sure. Just replace it an be done.

Your front shock oil is a bit light compared to the rear, which will cause your front end to dive more on deceleration or under braking making the back end feel light and the front have a lot of steering. Normally I run 2x1.6 with 40 to 45wt shock oil depending on temp. It tames the car down. I also run the stock springs. Going from light blue to black is only going to make your rear end have less bite, and going softer front spring will make steering more aggressive on low speed steering or under braking.


As I mentioned earlier you can also try one step harder compound in the front tire

One thing I didn't see is the brass rear skid plate. That will better plant the rear end because it places weight at the lowest and most rearward position on the car. That and 21 front blocks and my car is dialed. No sway bars and I run the stock shock springs and use 34F/27.5R shock oils and I'm running 7K Front and 3/3.5K Rear diff oils.

I'm back to this after a 20 year abstinence. I bought a 4wd buggy that I found such a handfull and such poor quality that the manufacturer refunded me. I bought a V4 to replace it. Love its build quality. There seems to be alot of negative comments on here about it being fragile, all I can say is, what a load of rubbish. I've not broken a thing after some very nasty incidents. However, I would say its a pig to get set up for high traction. I'm running on carpet and cant get any setup to work. Already thinking of changing it to something more placid, not that I want to. Perhaps I'm just that poor a driver now. Good luck, hope it works out.

Try a big front sway bar, the fast locals ran a 2mm front bar to tame it on turf

I just put the 2 hole pistons in the rear to match the front, and it feels great, I will try it out tomorrow at the track. I haven't raced in two weeks so I am more than ready. Anyone else having trouble with the rear wheel bearings wearing out fast? I noticed that is one steep angle for the rear drive shafts.
