If you go with a shim that is more than 1mm, make sure to use screws that are longer by the same amount as the thickness of the shims (the stock screws are 10mm so if you go to a 2mm shim use 12mm screws). I didn't like how the inner ball cups interfered with the plate at full suspension compression if you run the inner hole on the plate so I raised my plate up by 2mm, and added a 2mm shim under the inner ball stud. This gives the ball cup clearance without having to grind away material from the plate or cup.

Also as Gertsch posted you can make roll center adjustments with the hinge pin mounts too.

As for making an adjustment to both the front and the rear of the car. It depends. All adjustments are to change the balance of the car. Sometimes an adjustment may fix one thing, but create another issue. If you have little idea what adjustments do, run the car, make A SINGLE change, then run it immediately again to feel the difference that one change made. I've been in the hobby for 25+ years, I know what changes do what. If my car is that far off, I can usually change several things at once, and get the car to be much better.



While changing which hole the hinge pin goes through on the hub will change roll center, it will also change the ride height, which if he resets (you should always check ride height and camber after any change) will change how much droop his car has, which will effect weight transfer. Also, what if his hinge pin is already in the upper hole?
Thanks for all the info guys. I will drop the hub using the upper hole. If I need more I will shim up the entire camber plate. Thanks again.

Hello, where is everyone getting there diff oils? Can't really find a good selection mainly for the center diff. I run ptrc oils in all my vehicles but they don't make anything in the 50000 and up .

Depending whats in stock, I usually get Associated or Mugen diff fluids, but the AE diff oil usually is cheaper.

Have you taken your anti roll bars off yet ? That's a valid change to consider if your looking for grip in the turns

I took the front off cause that's what the setup called for but not the rear. I forgot about that. I will keep that in the back of my mind next time out. Thanks.
Are there other buggy diff seals that will fit the d413 center, fr and rr diff cup? I use the exotek Spurs so I don't want to be buying the HB Spurs just to get the seal.

Have you taken your anti roll bar also on the rear off for low grip clay/dirt?
Front of course but rear sounds interesting

cheers

My outdoor track has higher speeds and less grip and I did not run either bar there. My indoor track varies as the track dries from layout changes. When the layout is just changed there is very little traction and I don't use roll bars. When the track dries enough to run slicks I usually put the rear roll bar back on .

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciate!
It looks like we have the same track conditions - outdoor.
My track is also high speed, low grip, dirt/clay, tight infield and 33sec/lap, small jumps.
Perhaps we should share our setup sheets

cheers!

I don't have the d413 anymore , but I used the tessman nationals set up the entire time I had it with little change. Just the bars or shock oils depending on how rutted up the track got

SMC Shorty packs, great 2s Lipo and awesome pricing on them.
I just ordered a couple last week, and fast shipping. I ordered Friday afternoon and had them Monday afternoon. Now depending on your location could a couple days longer
