I notice your battery leads are really long. Can the lipo not be mounted with the plugs towards the back to allow much shorter leads?

Yeah, just look a closer look, it would block off that outside plug. Could shave off a lot of weight if it wasn't angled. Will try 14 gauge wire instead. Where can I find a fan to mount on the chassis that gets power from my receiver?

You could :

1 - turn the steering gain down on your radio.

2 - add negative camber to your steer tires.

3 - use a front sway bar, or use a thicker one.

4 - increase the weight of your front diff oil.

5 - decrease the weight of your center diff oil.

6 - try different tires.

7 - use a slower steering servo.

8 - raise your front roll center.

For those looking for spurs, in addition to what was offered here, someone has also posted on eBay. Hopefully for those with cars just sitting around can get a new spur and get your car up and running.

1st night went well. Can't believe how hard you can throw this car into the corner. Seems like the car requires a larger motor though. Have you guys noticed this? The same motor I had in my other wheelers seems slow in the 413.... Time to motor up

to me it just feels the other way around. due to this buggy being so light ( mine is 1744 grams )

It feels more nimble and light. Maybe my others were so hard to drive. Either way I'm motoring up.
