Will any 12MM Hex wheel work for this?

Jconcepts Mono (R)
B5M Rear
etc.

I did a little more searching and it appears that TLR 22-4 fronts work well, and just about any 12mm rears work well.

Is that accurate?
Yes that is accurate.

I race on a low grip outdoor clay track and my car isn't carrying as much corner speed as I'd like. It does everything very well except carrying corner speed. Attached is my setup. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Off power corner speed or On power? I see some things that could improve traction also if needed.

Hello everyone, I have been running an XB4 2016 on a fairly blown out medium sized off road track. I was wondering if anyone has driven both the d13 and the XB4 in similar conditions and, if so, what were your experiences with both (I.e. Was it a night and day difference?). I am NOT looking to start a "which is better" debate as they are both good cars, I would just like to know what to expect if I give a d413 a try. Your feedback would be appreciated.

So anyone think we will get a D413 v2 this year? Or does the D216 need more attention?

Def the d216 needs more attention. The parts and options for d413 is out there and imo it really does not need an upgrade.
Would be nice though but i really hope they will give d216 carpet priority. Same with 1/8 e-buggy

Hi Guys -

Does anyone know what shock limiters to use for our shocks? I am building mine to mirror Ty's OCRC setup. He has shock limiters in the front and rear but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

Thanks for the help!

If doing external limiters on the shock shaft, I've used orings before.

I use associated B5 limiters they work fine and are cheap $3.

Funny some of the comments I have placed on the HB Facebook page over the last few months have been getting answered by some European guys this past week. It was like the company was in major limbo and could not say anything.
