cheese-man, if you are stuck searching for RW spurs, Schumacher spurs are a direct bolt on
The center hole is the same?

We had a guy test this already and he reports that they are nowhere near the same.

We need a first page organized like the Losi SCTE's page. Really helps to have resources like that. On this thread if you miss a couple days of not reading its like work just to catch up on info.

I also ordered a couple different thrust bearings to try also. I think I like the looks of the Schumacher one the best.
Do us a favor and take a caliper and measure each setup then test. Would be nice to have measurable data.

My spur gear from my cougar sv fitted the dex210 perfectly - they both use 8mm inside diameter hole

These things brings out the engineer in me (and I hear some say Internet-engineer )

The rear shock towers breaking on flat (or right side up) landings gets me thinking about the 55mm vs 52mm shock shafts.
The nut on top of the piston might be bottoming out in the top of the shock with the 55mm shaft, giving a blow to the rear tower (the rubber damper on the shaft might compress on impact sending the piston to high).

If that is not the case then the towers might be a bit under-dimensioned or the shock mounting holes should be raised slightly (but then also reducing down-stroke/droop).

just my two cents anyway. I will look into this when building mine next week.

A friend of a friend (whatever that's worth) also says the Schum. spur was a direct bolt on and been running flawless, but I have not seen it yet.

2wd car ever made, it drives like a 4wd the grip is unbelievable.
I am now converted to Durango, next on the list DEX410.

Guys two quick questions. What ride height are you guys running, and what gearing for a 10.5 motor. I ran a boosted 13.5 with a 28/75 and felt it needed more power down low. I think I am going to change motors. Thanks...

Mine was from the first batch. I landed very hard and the shock tower broke. The buggy survived a few hard crashes (in another race) before the tower broke. Overall I am very happy with the durability of the buggy. The shock tower does appear to need more material around the affected areas.

he needs to re-test.

The Schuey spurs fit both the 410 and the 210. Its the same inner diameter of 8mm, and uses associated style slipper pads.

I have ran an 83T spur in my 410 in the past. Schuey Part number is U3351

76T spur is part number U3790

Can someone tell me if the DEX410 and DEX210 use the same servo horns?

They use two different servo horns. #320124 for the 210 and #340007 for the 410.

Yes. I know they have diff part #'s, but they look very similar in pics. I just bought a used 410, but I need a servo saver. I have the spares from my 210 that I can use with diff brand servo.

I would go ALU on the 410. Racers edge makes a good one. Stick with plastic on the 210 cause there is no servo saver.
