Hot Bodies D413 - Build Update 1

So far about an hour into the build, which was a bit unconventional. The D413 has you build the technical parts first including the shocks, diffs and turnbuckles.

It's worth noting that when you build the car in the saddle pack configuration, many motors will not fit. I tried a viper, novak, and a reedy and none of them fit behind the steering post. I heard that an Orion will fit but I couldn't see if it did. I finally built it with the shorty.

+LindyFD 160 Good info.  I like the shorty config, as I have many shorty batteries and it probably saves a bit iof weight

I read the literature about the shock caps, and how new Aluminum caps were released. My question is with the OEM plastic caps. Why do they have a screw at the top if they are not used to bleed the shocks (building them right now)? Thanks
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CxrKUkIz9ZM/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAACC4/dCVvdgDRkug/photo.jpg?sz=64
+RockNSteady They were released......And I have purchased the last set on the planet via eBay shipping from the UK.  I also B/O some from Amain,........The Stockers can be built either with the included bladder or emulsion style (just an o ring)

This car is very nice, I drove one and it's just like a mix between a B44 and an Xray (if u have ever driven a xray xb4) It's aggresive and plays with you but is also forgiving, I will be picking up a Lazar ZX6 from kyosho very soon, and will put in the gear diffs when I get it! I can't wait to get a 4wd buggy!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CxrKUkIz9ZM/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAACC4/dCVvdgDRkug/photo.jpg?sz=64
 The D413 is in a league of it's own in my opinion.  The B44.X with it's durabilty issues and the Xray with it's plastic gear diff are still a far cry away.

What are all the required hex sizes for screw drivers for this build???
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CxrKUkIz9ZM/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAACC4/dCVvdgDRkug/photo.jpg?sz=64
 2.5, 2.0, 1.5 and technically 1.3mm (although I found that my .050 MIP driver fit better)
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-XB4tutRNxw8/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAAEE/8GItDfLGLLE/photo.jpg?sz=64
Hey Rich did u put the size on your MIP Thorp hex drivers like that or are they new and that's how they come now? I use those along with other brands also. Next question, how long have u had your channel and how many kits have u built on it? Do u keep all of them or do u sell some? And last do u always buy new electronics or do u swap sometimes if no longer gonna run a certain kit? Thanks man, channel is awesome.
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CxrKUkIz9ZM/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAACC4/dCVvdgDRkug/photo.jpg?sz=64
Thanks for the great comments JD!  My MIP drivers are a couple of years old and did not include the new "Wrench Wraps" Here's my video explaining it:  MIP Wrench Wraps  I've probably had about 40 different RC's featured at The RCNetwork with about half being "kits"  Right now, I have about 12 in the studio.  As for electronics, I do re-purpose electronics.  They're pretty expensive when you get the good stuff and really last a long time if you keep them working good.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bJ4ugxHgXJQ/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAACY/CYy9yoWgiHc/photo.jpg?sz=64
Great videos man ! Also love your taste in the parts you chose. No expense spared !

awsome looking kit. but you think for the cost of the kit. they would give you aluminum shock caps 
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CxrKUkIz9ZM/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAACC4/dCVvdgDRkug/photo.jpg?sz=64
 Yeah, there was some controversy on the caps.  Right after the realease (Over a year ago) TY started running Aluminum caps.  HB has stated they're coming out with them and still nothing.  They stated they had Pro-Line make a one off set for Ty

+matt cheadle HPI has been having some issues the past couple of years......Originally, it was based in California, but was aquired/partnered with Hobbico in Illinois.  Hobbico has recently taken over most of the CS for HPI and that's where most of the issues are, the transition.  Fortunately, Ty Tessmann runs this car and has been getting a ton of press on his wins, which "should" help the parts/car support.  Your best bet is to order from Tower, as they're directly involved with Hobbico/HPI and would probably have the best amount.  With all that said, the D413 is an amazing buggy and drives better than any 4wd buggy I've had.  Nothing has broke, but it would be nice to have some factory upgrades available.  I have recently purchased the AVID racing chassis, weight system and floating servo mount for it and will be testing that soon.  Stay tuned!

@Thatonepersonz With copied I mean that - after Losi started to narrow the chassis - Team Durango really brought the next step to "ultra copact" the car. I think the D8 was great and the CR8 will be good, too, but $300? Over here the D8 was at €450 ($590) and spares were close to Kyosho pricing. However ... I'm excited about the all new Xray platform 2012.

He can't imagine anything better? He should try a Team Durango ... often "copied", never reached. :-) However, a nice chassis idea. But lightening the chassis isn't so good as CG will rise. But they know what they are doing! Nice car but ugly body.

No I never tought it to him. I have seen another 3 year old hold it this way. I think the distance betweeen the grip & the trigger is shorter that way. he still has a hard time hitting reverse. He hakes heis hand off the wheel & moves the trigger to reverse. Weird, but it works for him. BTW he is 3 now and a lot better driver now.

nice... love for the tekin gear-with hotwire and a pc you can really fine tune your setup. ran the rsx and 6.5 in my durango dex410 - perfect for a "wheeler" nice choice!

This was very helpful. How did you get the Losi 22 arm to work? The threads are different than the ball given in the kit. We're you able to purchase a ball that fit with std thread ? If so what is the make? Thanks again.

+The RCNetwork Thanks, How about the Losi 22 Servo Arm. the threads ared standard. Is there a ball stud that will fit the HB ball cup with standard thread that will fit the Losi servo arm? Thanks again!!!

+Bill Laster If you're referring to the Lunsford turnbuckles, I used the stock cups on the Lunsford Ti Turnbuckles

So eliminating the servo saver with end points set correctly has no negative effect? I want to place just a regular horn on it. Is that okay?

+RockNSteady in a sense, yes.  However, a good harsh landing with a low torque servo could have ill effect.  I think in the D413, you can run a direct servo horn with a 180+ oz/in torque servo with no problem

Washers size for the slope

Cool thanks

 I ended up buying a ton of washers from a local hardware store and ended up finding the exact size to help not bottom out the areas on the steering rack.  I also used them through out the buggy where ever slope was found.  Sorry for not the best answer, but I think I spent maybe $6 in washers and it was priceless!  The key was the thickness and the inside diameter of the washer

this is off topic from the vid, but i have a sprint 2 and was looking for your opinion on gearing. would like to see speeds around 60mph. Any advice? everything is stock except the sidewinder 3 combo.

Depending on the kv of your sidewinder system (4600 and 5700kv will be fine), run a 3s Lipo and you'll get right close to 60mph with stock gearing.  Watch your ride height, as the higher up the body, you'll catch air under and it will go airborne!  Kepp an eye on your temps as well

Hello, flip the cross "X" brace for your RSX so the dimple side is down.

Not a problem! You're not the first, nor will you be the last! Great video's and reviews! We really enjoy them
