Firstly , well done on the worlds warmup. Regarding the rear hub carriers, what does the inserts change as well as the A-arm shock inserts. Thanks

Do you have any pics of how you fit this on the detc410? Looks like I'm going to have to do a little work to make it fit.

Here at the mile high nationals. The Denver boys are doing a great job. The car was very fast out the box but I have been through 3 stub axles so far. From what I have found. The djc ball and the material is very thin. So I think we need an updated alxe. Has anybody tryed a different front shaft?

I have not broken one yet. I have infact broken a top deck. How I am not sure. It looks a bit flimsy where it widens by the spur. Any one else encountered this

If anyone is at the BRCA Clubmans event in the UK tomorrow (Saturday), I'll be there and happy to provide any advice or help for anyone debuting their DETC410's at West London!

Just come over and say hi, I'll happily talk you through what Elliott, myself and the rest of the team have found with our testing of the car

Is it normal for drivetrain to be a little tight until car has been run a few packs?

Also after the fail with the exotek battery strap I found a cheap velcro strap from Align that fits perfect, 3.99 for 2 straps

Edit : Read through a bunch of post and found my answer. Taking out the lay shaft shim helped free up car some. I'm using the serpent gear which I guess is a bit thicker.

I've raced this car a couple weeks now. I have not broken a single part (knock on wood). I have taken some pretty nasty hits, and I have driven the car into the wall at full speed. I think this car is actually very durable compared to others. Several people at my LHS track run associated, and they break c-hubs and steering hubs all the time. Even the x-ray guys have broken suspension parts every once in a while. Heck, I probably spent $100 on c-hubs when I ran my 417.

The only thing I have noticed is after a few hits the suspension parts get a lot of slop in them. I have found that it mainly comes from the kit ball cups.

The only wish I have for version 2 is to change the lay shaft to accept wider spur gears. It would be a simple fix to move the groove for the E-clip out a millimeter. You can always add shims for thinner spurs.
