I'm running 2x1.6 with 37.5 Losi front and 32.5 Losi Rear oils and no front swaybar.
A lot of people that are using TYs Reedy setup have 2x1.6 and 2x1.7

After you have that part figured out, install the cap with the bleed screw completely out, tighten the cap all the way down, leave the shaft up and to be honest i would just leave the bleed screw out, but if you want to use the bleed screw, screw it in while the shaft is up. you should get as close to zero rebound as you can with this technique.
I tried it emulsion style, and BADABAAAANG!! Zero rebound. That's just way itīs gonna be then. Thanks again MantisWorx and all you guys for trying to help me out here

crap that seems light. I was talking to a sponsor HB driver that runs the 1.6/1.7 combo. He said he is running 45/42.5. He said his car was trash with lighter oils around 30wt.

ok, I know this question comes up a lot. And yeah it is kinda noobish and very subjective.

We run 8 minute mains in 4wd and 6 minute quals. I am currently using 5mm bullets on all of my batteries. The d413 seems to be really punishing my packs. They come off the track in the main at 30%. They also get a little warm, not much, but you can feel it in your hands. My main issues are increased IR in one cell and puffing. I am using the 90c 4800 mah packs with a 6.5. Does anyone make a pack cell that holds up better and does not puff? In my experience al of these higher mah packs in the same sized cases are puffing. I am told this had to do with the tight confines of the cells in the shorty pack. The orion 100c 4500 seems like it might be a well made pack, but they are 4mm. I know the turnigy ultimates are 5mm, but I have had issues with cell failing entirely in those. Maybe I just expect my packs to last too long. thoughts?

I didn't mix anything up, I opened each bag step by step and it had two pins but they are different, one was correct and one was the thinner type for the wheel hex. I had one in my parts bin from another kit but it was definitely the wrong one.

Hmmm interesting with the lighter oils. What type or style of track or any pics to get an idea. Most the 413 guys here at our track are still messing with oils, but always seem to come back to 37.5 and 32.5 to 35 for rear. I know on a couple of our jumps if I over shoot, you get a little smack.

As for the battery thing Wildcat said, so far I haven't noticed with mine, but curious now. We run 5min Quals and 7min Mains, so you figure about 3mins for warm-up laps and 7mins, your running for atleast 10mins now. I might have to check mine this weekend at trophy race, since running on a bigger indoor track, pretty much a 1/8 indoor track.

I tried some small capcity shorties. TP, reedy and a few others. But, if i tried to do practice laps, I would dump in the main. The TP 3800 would dump in a 5 minute race if I did practice laps. The magic number seems to be 4500+ mah. I just want a higher quality cell, that will hold up to a 6.5 in a wheeler better. I try to get my packs to last a year

Off topic, but these are some of the reasons that I run a HV setup (batteries are cheaper, last longer, runs cooler, etc...). The bigger races that I have entered (there aren't that many, and aren't National level) didn't care at all about it because it's a mod class anyway.
