Make sure your bearings are seated all the way down onto the shim. I had to polish one of the outdrives to get the bearing all the way down. Solved my problem immediately.

Yeah, I did that to the case side on mine too so the bearing fit all the way.

Read the article about "8-Racing". The guy made a CF chassis for the DEX 410

I had the same problem with the spur gear retaining clip. I took a dremel to the ends of it to give it rounded ends so it would slide in easier, no problems now.

A coarse nail file also works. That's what I used because I was afraid I'd over-do it with the Dremel.

Alright, found the part i needed.

So, as for last night. My setup is in my signiture, geared with a 27/87.

The track is a BIG 8th scale track, so i wasnt geared perfect for it, but I held my own. Ran with the 8th scale electrics, ended up Qualifying 4th out of 7, and took 3rd overall. The car was incredible. I could put it wherever I wanted, and didnt even have to think about it. Super fast out of the corners, steering was superb.

I was running a 13.5- and was easily able to keep up with everyone in the infield, but was plenty fast on the 150 foot straight as well. I Think i could have gone up a tooth or two and been better.

Took a LOT of hard hits, from running with the 8th scales, and the thing just kept on going. Lots of people thought the car was going to break (myself included). At the end of the night during the last 30 seconds of the main, i got ran over going down the straight and broke the left rear gearbox insert. That was the ONLY problem of the night.

Temps were great, about 135 on the motor when I came off, and 140 on the speedo.

I cannot WAIT to get this on the indoor track, and get a decent setup on it.

I almost scrapped the entire car because of this. Such a stupid little thing and I think I spent more time on that than the rest of the build. Had to drill larger holes in the plastic cover, finally worked after the 3rd time.

For the retaining clip issue..All you guys have to do is angle the top spur cover correctly as u put in the clip. As soon as you get it to go in those holes properly just a nice strong puch and ur good. You dont want it to be too easy as it can..and will..come off if its not secure enough.
