The Avid servo mount uses 3 screws, so it will not fit if you are not willing to make some extra holes in your chassis.

I run on a tight indoor track med to low grip and found Ty's setup very twitchy to drive. Things that I did to calm it down. Orange front spring, take the shim off the Ackerman, copper sway bar on front, glue the front arm insert. U can also move the battery back.
This car is pretty sweet to drive. It can be driven hard and is still forgiving. Coming off a summer of driving 1/8 scale this car is a perfect fit.
AE has a 3/16 shim that works perfect on the Ackerman to take out the slop. And it's only $3
And after driving my car my buddy with a zx6 is pissed that he bought the wrong car

Thanks......it was fun battling with Jose, he is one of the local Losi guys. I let him go a few times because I was confident in the way the car was handling. Slicks are working at our track now and if you get in the dust you just cant do anything about it.

Had my first real race yesterday. Car felt really good overall. In the A main though, my front shock cup became dislodged and fell off (really hurts performance obviously). Do you guys zip tie these to the bottom coil of the spring? These are the standard ones, not the mud guard type.

What is the advantage of running the wing mounts upside down?

What are you using to glue your arm inserts on?

Here you go. Check the 1st page of the thead.



Increasing Arms Stiffness
We know the D413 has "Signature HB Monocoque suspension arms for stiffness, strength and adjustability" but you can increase the stiffness without buying the carbon fiber plates.

Wing Mounts

Got to the front diff and got everything together and stripped one of those tiny screws. Bummer for sure. Just built a Kyosho RT6 the last 2 days and didn't strip a single screw. Guess I'll whip out the Dremel.

IMO, some of the screws seem to be low grade. Those screws are long and have a small head. I would user a cap head screw to pre-thread then put the little guy in.

Also its a 1.3mm size hex driver, not a .050. That will strip a screw.
