Finally got most of my wiring done. I just have to clean up battery side and I'll be done. That, and finish the body fit, which was a big pain in the ass to assemble.

managed to take first in our open mod class with a 13.5 spec power setup. Vehicle worked quite well, just need different tires I am thinking for a bit more consistent traction. Got em here just need to glue them up lol.

This is a very rough dry loose track. I found that going with the rear arms pushed all the way back but more toe really helped with stability and grip here.

^^^ Congrats, Cain!
I too had a great weekend. Ran the final race of our local summer point series this weekend. I was about a full 1/4 lap (5 seconds) behind the TQ, but managed to win the 11 car A-Main to solidify an overall 2nd place finish in the series! After returning to the hobby in April, I've had a blast with this car. I've been fortunate, thanks to the brilliant engineering of this vehicle to never DNF at our local track. I was the only HB in a pack of AE/TLR and Kyosho. The TQ broke a few minutes in (B64D). He was leading at the time, though I was only a couple seconds behind. I'm very excited to see what HB brings to the 1/10 scale wheeler class in the coming months. I'm holding off until the 418 shows up.....

NICE!

These cars really do perform that's for sure and can take a beating.

I am using a Motiv MC2 13.5 and they like smaller pinions / bigger spur, so for our track I believe I am running a 72T spur and a 29T pinion. Before with my maclan MRR 13.5 with ultra torque rotor (non-team edition) I was running a 32T pinion.

Seen that before, also people breaking the end of the inner hingepins that the nut threads onto.

My daughter managed to punch out a part of the front shock tower brace / mount in a clean 1/3 inch peice. But still sufficiently stiff lol.

I am very curious to see what they come up with for these cars lol.

Hum I may try that with the Rear arms back to get traction out of corners on dry dirt still haven't messed with the Anti squat though or moving the Rear shocks in the top hole on the Rear arms.

Finally ready to hit the track. I wanted to ask you guys if you have lots of slop in the rear upright? Mine has a bunch and I'm debating shimming it up.

Exotek had a super quick response. If anyone was inquiring, the bearings are 3x6x2.5

I like the gold esc. My d413 also moves super free in many spots. It also crossed my mind to shim up some areas. i am leaving mine alone for now. Surprisingly my buddy picked up a used d413 and his has the same amount of free play as my new 1. I have a new 22 and b6d too. The B6d has been raced a bunch by my son (crash central) and my self. 22 and 413 still have way more free play than way used B6d. So if I were to tighten it up. I would use b6 studs and cups plus a bunch of tiny washers. Send it.
