I imagine that it would involve removing the front differential and putting very thick oil in the center differential. Maybe weights in the front too?

I considered a D216 but around my area simply using the thing results in blowing the diffs.
bash my d216 outside and run it hard at the track. I wish I could break the diff so I had a reason to pull it out.

Default D413/418 Hybrid/Prototype

Published on:

Confirmation that HB Racing remains committed to developing their 1/10 Wheeler. I remain optimistic that HB will deliver in the coming months. Iíve been sitting on the fence contemplating if I should buy a Tekno EB410, but Iím trying to hold out waiting for HB to deliver in this class. Iíve been very happy with my D413 and my return to RC racing. Iíve yet to DNF a race. I attribute that to the engineering and component quality more than my driving skill. LOL.

Looking at the prototype, and confirmed in the article, most of the parts are shared. Iím hopeful that the development of this buggy takes into consideration some of the gripes that I and others have experienced such as diff access. The proto doesnít confirm that. Time will tell.

nice find! I wonder what body that is?

I am hoping that they take into account some of the features other vehicles have, namely, an ease of access to the diffs.

Side question, how are you guys easily getting to the rear tower ball stud to remove and just it with shims? Are you using a ball driver or something?

Ah, HA! Turns out David felt center diff removal could be improved as well!

Default Backward compatibility of spares

From the prototype it looks like the following parts are changed:
1. Chassis
2. Steering arm/turnbuckle
3. Top plates (shortened/removed)

So other than the above, the spares I have from the D413 can potentially be carried over and I retain my investment in the Exotek center diff mount
Although I wouldn't mind if the shock tower holders and gearbox were redesigned to allow for easier diff access.
Making the front tower holder a bit tougher would also be appreciated (if anyone from HB is reading this...)

Looks kinda cobbled together. Worn parts/do I see rust? Those wires going under rear driveshaft look terrible. I do like the ideas of no top deck to give it some flex. You can see were chassis braces can be hooked up. Ones that could have some give. Lots of weight forward seems good idea for carpet/turf.

My name is Al Bundy and I am a RC addict.

I just picked up a new HB d413 for dirt cheap (older version) I have read a lot about this car, but would like expert experienced advice. My tracks are typically low grip. I race on outdoor medium to large tracks.

What aftermarket parts do I need for this car for increased DURABILITY and performance. I hate dnf's due to parts weakness.....

It a 5.5T motor too much? ......I can obviously turn down the epa and/or esc settings....

I like my cars to pull so what diff oil weight advice do experienced racers recommend?

Well off to rc rehab....just after I place an ad for a RC mechanic....

welcome Al!

What do you mean by "Older version" of the D413?

Personally with the 2 I have here, I like the stretch chassis. They helped with stability a lot. Other nice things I like are the exotek steering rack, exotek center diff mount, and if you can swing it the exotek chassis are great upgrades.

As for setup, i like a more direct feeling car so I had:

10-200-7 and it felt great. If that feels like too much though, try dropping down to 10-100-5 for diffs or even 60K in the center.

as for 5.5T motor, I think a lot of that would be relative to the conditions you are going to race on. I would see what is common in your area and choose from there.
