Ran the car last night at practice, and my setup is WAY off. I can tell the car is going to be good though, very light and nimble feeling. Wish I had stiffer springs.

Default Setup question

I have a set-up question in terms of the 3 diffs for the car.

I run on a dirt track that is loose, but once watered becomes probably medium traction.

I was thinking of using 7 000 in the front, 100 000 in the center and probably 3 000 in the rear. Does this sound reasonable.

I am worried the 100 000 is too much.

Any thoughts suggestion. Thanks again.

I'm with you on the body, it is a cool design but I stink at scoring/cutting bodies and it was like having to cut out 3 bodies for this 1 body! Looks good on the track though.

FYI, Yokomo have some really stiff springs in their portfolio for a decent price. Even their so-called soft orange/super soft green set-up seems to work almost everywhere for the B-Max4 series, and medium black and hard purples seem to be too stiff for most applications. Maybe they're just about right for the D413.

From XRAY/HUDY's off-road setup handbook -
Front
Thinner
• Increases steering into corners (off-power)
• If oil is too thin the steering may become inconsistent,
especially it can lose forward traction (and steering)
during acceleration out of corners
Thicker
• Increases stability into corners during braking
• Increases steering on-power at corner exit

Center
Thinner
• Front wheels unload more during acceleration
• Decreases on-power steering (reduces oversteer)
• Easier to drive on rough tracks
• If a high-power engine is used you could waste too
much power and sometime “cook” the oil in the center
differential because it “overloads”
• More off-power steering
Thicker
• More all-wheel drive effect
• Better acceleration
• Increases on-power steering (reduces understeer)
• Better suited on high-bite, smooth tracks
• Car can be more nervous to drive especially if a high
power engine is used - you might need to be smooth on
the throttle

Rear
Thinner
• Increases cornering traction
• Increases steering into corner
Thicker
• Decreases rear traction while cornering
• Reduces wheelspin

I don't have enough experience with the center diff to help, but check out the first post under Diff Fluid Choice to see what Torrance has said about it.

Thanks for the ideas guys! I kind of want to stick with the HB springs so hopefully in the future I can compare apples to apples with other D413 users. I hate trying to compare cross manufacturer for rates, because they never seem to match between stated rates and measured rates.

Also, I am on a 6.5 Ballistic with a RSpro no timing, and hit 180F on a 21T. Went to 20T and I am still hot. I didn't like the mesh I got from a 19T, so I think 20T is the smallest I can go. I will have to get a fan in there I think.

I was wondering the same thing.... but more importantly, what about people that had parts missing or bad in the kit.... are they getting any replacements yet?
