Car did not handle well with the battery forward, look at the numbers on the picture. If you put the esc in front of the motor and also move the battery forward. You will have to to have entirely too much collar jack to get the cross weights back to 50/50. In testing just sliding the battery forward made the rear very unstable most noticeable on landings and on exit. You could probably get away with it on higher grip tracks but on a med bite track it was tough to drive.

The motor/esc weighs almost exactly what the battery weighs, seems logical to me that you would want them across from each other. As it sits the rear is almost perfect and the car just needs some weight on top of the servo.

Ran on new layout this past weekend and the D413 did great, the track was little tighter and some narrower lanes then usual with quite a few of 180s or U-turns and the car ands setup performed great.

I did manage to test out the durability again... LOL
The car got a litter wide in one of the turns and the front passenger side clipped a cement post.... and thought it was the end of that side... LOL come to find out it only popped the shock ball cap. The turn marshall pressed the ball cap on the tower and finished the race, granted I dropped down to 6th after being in 3rd, but my car is still alive and still drives.

Now if I had on one of the other caps, I bet something or the tower would have snapped, so I'm still like the "ball cup" shock caps

That's actually pretty cheap compared to buying 4 digital scales!

Another wheel question...22 or 22-4 fronts? I know both work but 2wd fronts are narrower

I was confused by this too. The 2WD wheels do not work, they have 10 mm hexes. Use the 22-4.

I am using the saddle packs and the set up works well for flat parts of the track but I have not been able to make it jump consistently. In fact I have ruined two rear shock mounts due to bad landings. I am going to change to the shorty to see if it is better. Not sure when I will get a chance to test due to weather.

Yeah, but it was stated by HB that they "work" with the TLR 22 front wheels. There are quotes on the front page of this thread. Ty ran the 22 fronts last year at Nats, I think.
