the collars are a must in my opinion after running many packs you will have problems with the cvds puking out drive pins if you dont have the upgraded collars

make sure to set the slipper correctly by the measurement given in the manual

other than that i have only broken 1 front and 1 rear arm and puked out almost every drive pin before getting the aluminum collars ....very durable car for sure
Also might want to have a front diff case as a spare. Only thing I've broken other than arms and rear ring gear. A hard hit to the front shock tower can crack the diff case.

I sold my d413 4wd buggy last week and bought an XB4 2wd and 4wd because I really liked the out of the box setup and parts availability. The d413 spur gear is impossible to find and I got tired of waiting..so glad it worked out. I was shocked how much better the xb4 suited my driving style. I thought I would have more time and energy for both but I just don't. I am selling the 2WD on the FS thread if anyone is interested. Its a 2014 and only ran one pack through it on a indoor rubber/carpet track.

Does anyone make a harder rear hub hing pin or do you guys just buy the stock part? I broke the rear of mine on the 4wd with a very mild landing on the one rear wheel.

I really like the spec-r fan mount. Makes it really easy to take the fan out or replace it if needed.

Can someone link this spec-r fan mount? Can't locate even on their site. Thanks

Cheers! Took me ages to get it right. I think it can do with some blacked out wiring. Ah well, maybe in the next car.

I have had the 13 spec and now own the 14 spec I haven't upgraded my collars at all I changed the pins with ones with a flat spot and used a grub screw with lock tite.


Never had a single problem!
