Working on my build now. What's a recommended starting setup for a medium sized clay track with high traction?

I am planning to use the saddle pack configuration.

Go with the stock set up. Then work it from there to suit your driving stile. Leave off the front sway bar to start with.

Run the stock link positions that it has in the manual to start out with. For the shocks: I'd use the stock springs, 1.6 X 2 Front pistons, 1.7 X 2 Rear Pistons, 37.5 wt front and 30 or 32.5 wt in the rear.

My exotek slipper eliminator came in, I'll keep it stock for now and see how it goes before trying it. Personally I'll probably pick up some more RC Shox garolite discs in general for better no fade slipper action but I figure good item to have.

What are peoples opinion on the durability of the front hubs? I am looking to pick up some spares, however kind of hate the fact they package them with rear carriers I won't use. So wondering if an alloy option is out there that is better if I am going to spend the money anyway.

Never had an issue with the front hubs on any of my Durango vehicles. What is it with the hub you are concerned about?

Asked a few pages ago, but seems to have been missed?

Can someone that has had both V4 and V5 let us know how much heavier (or lighter) the V5 is?

Hi,

The hole dieameter on all durango spur gears is 8 mm, same as schumacher spurs, too!

Hope that helps?

alright some news:

I ran the dex210F and dex410v5 at a race event this past Saturday. DEX210F was in 17.5 blinky class and the dex410v5 Mod.

The DEX410V5 was ran basically in box stock configuration other than 100K center diff oil with a 8.5 turn motor, shorty setup and ESC behind the motor. Tires were pretty much a worn proline MC compound tire, basically slicks.

The DEX410V5 was very fast. Initially I ran it with the front sway bar, and it allowed me to ploy thru the turns at a very high speed, but was a bit more push than I liked off power. I could see this setup being easy to drive for someone new. However, I wanted more steering, so I took the sway bar off.

For the final heat I was able to run, the car was just an effortless drive. Probably the only oddity I noticed was once in a blue moon depending on how hard I would grab the throttle, I would notice a hint of torque steer. It was very rare, but I did want to mention it.

Now, on to the bad. I broke 2 front shock shafts. One of the DEX210F, one of the DEX410V5. Neither of these were on hits that should have broken the shafts. The dex210F was barely moving when I bumped the rear of a vehicle and it snapped at the threads. Same with the dex410v5.

In particular, the point of breakage was about 1mm from the top of the thread on both breakages, and hence became lodged in the shock end.

I sent Hobbico a message about this and will see what they say. I was able to at least continue in one class as i did have 1 replacement shaft and I managed to slot the shock end and remove the broken part, but at the cost of a weaker end. But on the dex410v5, It ended my day at that point.

Looking forward to great things out of this car, especially when we move things outdoors.

As for the weight difference, the V5 is slightly heavier. But if you run the shorty pack configuration, it would most likely come in slightly lighter. This also depends on what electronics, tires/rims and so on are used. I think the extra weight helps make the car more stable.

This past Sundays race was awesome with the V5. I took both wins in the qualifiers and the win for the main. The buggy goes exactly where you want it to with ease.

Even when I bumped the pipe and fell back a position or two, I didn't have that panic to hurry up to catch back up feeling, as I knew the buggy was so planted I could just drive back around the guys ahead of me when I was ready.

When the other guys asked me what I thought of the buggy, I told them it was a struggle to drive and that I was just getting lucky to get around them when I did. I say this, because I don't want them to know how easy this car is to drive and not to buy one, that way I can keep my competitive advantage. I know....I'm such an ass.

Hey,
How do you guys think this buggy would hold up in 17.5t stock racing.
Like as in speed and motor temps and could it fit in a big spur.
Thanks

I ran my dex410v3/v4 in 4wd stock for a while and even with the rear shorty mod it weighed in around 1750 to 1790. It can do well in stock, its just hard to keep the electronics cool with the weight especially.

With a v5 I would run a 40mm fan on the motor and a ESC fan and it should be OK.

Also eliminating the slipper and centre diff would take some rotating mass away also.

So the centre diff should help it be cooler or a slipper elemitor should help it be cooler?
Thanks

Im sure I read somewhere there is a way to run no centre diff, most people are running super thick oil in them in Mod and with 17.5 I don't think there is a gain.

Less rotating mass the better it is for any motor especially a 17.5

Unfortunately there are better 4wd stock buggy's around Kyosho zx6 and yokomo bmax being 2 I know of that go to 1600g weight easily.
