Correct thus the upgrading of the Ujoints drive shaft (although these weigh the same as the CVD style) and wanting composite gears.

Im not to concerned about speed in 17.5 more worried about motor temps any reduction in load really shows, I cooked a 17.5 from running to much timming and to low of a FDR.
If i can consistently lap a race without any mistakes Im usually really happy irrelevant of placing.

I think ceramics will be the next thing especially the diff/slipper & hub bearings.

Weight is around 1730g so not light but not to heavy I run 2 fans also plus a alloy bracket , 22-4's are in the 1800's and they are still competitive

The Tamiya cab forward body the team drivers used at the worlds. It's all painted up and ready to go.

^^^ My favorite thing about that post is the irony with your SN. LOL

As for the body, something has to fit better than that. Everything all exposed like that means you're going to have a lot of cleaning to due between runs. If only my buddy would stop draggin' ass, maybe I could get my body done. First for the B5 and then for a few others and I think it will be well received.

The body actually fits pretty good. The chassis was designed around it. He just got a little carried away cutting out the rear section.

First one and was a little tired when cutting it out. Its actually not a bad fit even with the back cut out the way it is. Not very much is exposed.

DEX410V5 Finished!!

Few pics with shorty config and saddles. I used a battery stop from the Losi SCTE for the shortys and the thumbwheels for the saddles.

Tamiya body fits like a glove. Top Notch fit and finish! Nice work Bman!!

Looks good! One thing flip your lipo straps around. They should be in the center of the saddles and away from the connections. Interested to hear the feedback on the shorty. Designed it but never tried it yet. Keep me posted.Thanks!

I really don't understand how a stock class with a dex410 would run 17.5, and not 13.5? There is too much power drain from a 4x4 buggy system. I bet 22-4's would have a very hard time with their power requirements. Could you go to a lighter foam in the tires, and weigh tires also? Drill out the chassis? I found out something that most of you probably already know, my servo saver was very sloppy and I did not know about the allen screw to tighten it up, that goes inside the servo saver posts, how embarrassing. Now most of the slop is gone. No wonder my old servo gave up trying to center.

I am sorry but 17.5 In a 4wd buggy just seems ridiculous to me....if its a spec class make it 10.5 or something..not to offend, just seems like a tough class on electronics.
