It has only been run 6 race nights on carpet. Are the cvd's that soft?

no they aren't, what kind of electronics do you run, speedo, servo, radio etc..

Proto update. Took the TQ last night but threw it away in the main. Fell to third after a couple brain farts, but was able to recover to about 1.5 seconds to the winner (qual'd 3rd). A couple more changes to shock oils and center diff and I think we're there!

Tekin rs, trackstar 9.5, savox, spectrum dx3r.
I don't believe it's the electronics though because I swapped motor and speedo with another set up, (gtb and 8.5 trackstar that run fine in my short bus) and didn't have the servo or transponder plugged in.

A friend with an X-Ray xb4 was running 2000 diff oil front & rear, I tried it on my dex410 and it actually works really well. The car had much more traction and was not twitchy at all. I was running 10/7 before.

How many people are running the optional UJ FRONT and UJ REAR ?

http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD310422

http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD310423

I have a binding in one of my front CV's and rest are starting to get some slop, to rebuild them with the original V3 parts it's nearly as much as the optional Ujoints.

Are they the same weight or less how are they strength, endurance wise? Race on outdoor clay/dirt tracks.

Would appreciate some feedback as they are rather pricey.

Thanks

Hi all! Can anyone advice the body shell for DEX410 with more space over the motor location? Need the space to locate the colling fan.

Don't laugh We have in Ukraine the low-entry class called "standart" for the children - those class allow use the brushed motors only - 27 turns. Last time my sun was running the DEX410 with brushed HPI 27T - after 5 minutes race the motor have had F'165 degree, the rotor F'233 degree... So need at least a one fan to add.

I just got a JConcepts Finnisher and there is quite a bit of room over the motor and ESC and there are vents right above them too.

no body will have room for a fan let alone airflow to the fan, you'll need to cut some speed holes for the fan to stick out. I also like to cut the bottom 1/4" of the windshield out and more of the back for more airflow, everything just runs cooler (do the same on mid motor cars, makes a decent drop in temps. Air needs to get in as well as out

Is that a completely re designed center module? I just hate how flimsy the stock one is.

I actually have the UJ on all corners of my car and I absolutely love them! I feel that it smooths out the power delivery and obviously cleans up all the slop.

I run a 30mm fan on my motor with a Proline bull dog body it has 0.2mm clearance from the centre shaft and 0.3mm ish from the windscreen of the shell.

I run 4wd Stock which is 17.5 Blinky so motors get hot and the ambient temps can be 30deg some race meet's so every little bit of cooling helps.

I used to cable tie the fan through my motor but then I got a yeah racing fan bracket and modified it to clear everything and do what I wanted.

Hopefully the Pics help

Excellent I will put some on order hopefully they will last a bit better than the stock CVD's, also have the composite diff gears on order so combined with the machined diff gears I already have the rotating mass of the drive train should be very light.

Car looked good Wednesday. I'll mount up a proper tire, and won't be as nice next week. Hope you can make it.

the composite gears are my next switch. I like to joke and say I've got a v3.5 since have all the UJs and the new type B shock pistons. I'll have a 4.5 when I put the gears in.
