Any plans for a battery hold down from Exotek?

The servo Mount would be excellent in the v5 if running shorty battery and rear motor,but unsure it would save any time if all electronics were in the foward motor position.

Do like the Steering bell cranks will be keen to grab them.

Good to see Exotek leading the way on hop ups for the TD line up

This is doodoo. A kit should include EVERYTHING required to build it in its entirety, less tires. While diff fluids will vary depending on each person's needs, there is a general viscosity that will be in the vicinity of what is required. Given this is now the 5th revision we all know 7k/3k is a great general starting point for this drivetrain. The center diff oil would be dependent on what is selected for the front and rear diffs to allow the best all-around performance.

Wheels? C'mon... really??!?? They cost them cents to produce. That's just wrong.

Looks like managed to swing a DEX410V5 that just started getting built for $350 shipped priority if all goes right! May even see it saturday. Even has some upgrades on it.

Excited!

I've started my build and have one major issue so far....Maybe this was covered some where and I missed it. After assembling the servo in the servo plate, the ackerman bar narrowly cleared the top of the servo (I'm running a Futaba aluminum canned servo). Once I bolted the front clip to the chassis, it now gets caught on the servo. Any word on this?

There are also several nitpicking issues with the build so far:

1. Manual is small - Not sure if the V4 was like this, but exploded pics on a half sheet of paper is bad!
2. Parts came off the trees during shipping - most notably, the front hub carriers were both off the tree and in the manual, they say they're different part numbers. No R/L marked on the part and they look identical, so I had to guess
3. No fluids, or wheels, which is a bummer
4. I hate the P2/P3 bags - They are stock full of trees - what happened to bag one, step one?
5. The owners manual starts with the front clip, which you would assume was bag 1....not so. Seems like the bags were labeled, then the manual was adjusted to a different order of assembly
6. Picking out the rear hingepin inserts seemed like translating mandarin. The pic in the tiny manual was complicated - just tell me what the stock set up part number is.
7. Plastic part trees had two license plate model numbers, with different numbers, some had one number on one side and a different number on the back.
8. Only had one issue where parts were missing....found them in the next numbered bag. crisis averted.
9. Seems like there's a lot of additional parts, that might not even goto the V5 - like the extra smaller rear hub carriers?

I'm about half way through, just installed the battery strap and headed to mount the motor. Parts seem decent and the build quality is good

Hi Rich,

If using a standard 20mm thick servo then there should be a 1mm gap between the servo and the steering plate, if all was installed correctly. Make sure the servo is bolted down flat against the chassis.

richmtb01: what did you find for the solution to the issue and what servo are you using exactly? I am looking to use this:

Futaba S9372SV servo

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXFSGA&P=ML

Dimensions:

Quote:
SPECIFICATIONS
Torque: 280 oz/in (20.1kg)
Speed: 0.07 sec/60 @ 6V
Dimensions: 1.6 x .83 x 1.46" (40.5 x 21 x 37.2mm)
Weight: 2.47 oz (70 g)
in your and anyone elses opinion, will this be a problem? and if so, what solution options are there short of a different servo?

Radiopost signature series in mine,(41.5x20.7x37.9mm) fits with a bit of clearance. In my old DESC410R (same parts) I ended up filing down the underside of the ackerman plate to get enough clearance. I think that was a JR 9100S.

Hey Guys, I updated the first post with a couple of things. I'm not done with it, but I've been slammed at work and this is the most I have been able to gather for now. I'll get more up asap.

Cain, I added the front wheel width measurements we have talked about. Its not done yet either but its all I could do when building my buddies kit last night.

Ordering the Exotek Locker based on your suggestion
