Not a thing. From the sounds of it, HB wasn't part of the bargain.

I think it's only the EU side, so nothing major for actual HB here in the US

Just to add fuel to the fire. And it's probably way off topic...

I was checking the neo16 results. Noticed someone was missing...coincidence?

Probably due to the bombings in Brussels. Maifield missed out because of it too. Last second transcontinental flight changes are difficult and expensive.

Anyone have thoughts on what can be causing this:



The track was pretty tight with no high speed cornering, but obviously due to the crop of the pic I can't say exactly what the circumstances were.

Sorry to change the topic but I am pretty new to 10th scale and I have been running indoors with aka chainlinks and JC dirt webs. What tires should I be running on my D413 on outdoor tracks that are low-med traction now that summer is coming? Can I still run those tires or are those specifically for clay tracks? Should I be running small pin type tires? And if so which ones work well?

short wheelbase. that's what all the longer chassis is about.

Way too much body roll regardless of wheel base.. Stiffen her up. Suspension too soft.

Sway bar to tight, it should be able to move side to side under full suspension compression, you have it locked in. problem solved.

chainlinks and dirtwebs for clay indoor or clay outdoor. small pins work great out door dirt. I like hot bodies megabites, but proline holeshots, and jc Double dees are great choice too. Its alway said see what others are running at that track. they will know best.

After just under 2 years of crashes... something had to give



A lot of guys swapped to an aluminum chassis for winter carpet tracks: but I stayed with the stock one: so there were lots of tumbles across concrete floors and into wood barriers. Because I can almost go back outdoors I'm swapping in another used graphite chassis: but maybe next year I'll get the metal plate for indoors during winter.

Mine looked like that to after a year of beatings . Did you remember to grab your front drive shaft off the track? I did not even think about mine expected it to stay in car like my other cars.

Default Exotek rear hubs

Anyone used the new Exotek rear hubs? Any opinions? Does anyone know How the vertical ball cup locations on the hub correspond to the horizontal stock positions. I know they give you a spacer and a recommendation for the ball stud. Does the inside ball stud location correspond to the #2 location on the stock rear hub?
