Does anyone know what the 2 on the alum RF suspension hanger block stands for?
Is it 2 anti squat or 2 deg toe?

Also does anyone know what the V4 kit has in rear toe, in kit standard form?

The 2 on the RF hanger refers to the roll center setting, either high or low http://www.team-durango.com/blog/201...quat-settings/
Standard toe for the '410 series is 3

Hey guys, picked up my v4 kit yesterday. Never owned a Durango 4wd kit so what parts do I need to pickup for this kit? I was reading that the aluminum servo arm is a must have, but is that for the v4 or just the v3? And besides front arms, are there any other spares I need?

Looking forward to running the car on indoor clay. What diff oil/setup changes do you guys recommend? I was thinking of going 9-10k front and 7k rear, any suggestions? Thanks!

Just alum servo saver. It's the same as v3. Beside extra parts, there isn't much you really need. Anything sale you get, I would consider it bling

I have one new in package. I'll sell it to you for $15. It's the Durango brand.

The Servo saver arm by Team Durango is a must, but also the chassis weight kit is also a must. Some people would suggest the Tresrey rear wheel hubs as well as some people have broken the plastic ones. That really isn't a common breaking point though. I have heard the rear differential support ring is a plus but Ive never seen a plastic one break.

The weight "Kit" is overkill and makes the car heavier than necessary. Either the side weights alone OR the rear skid weight, which is what I'd suggest as it adds weight to the lowest possible point on the car AND it gets rid of the stock skid plate which turns into an excavator!

The reason we break components on this car isn't because of poor manufacturing, but because of it's weight, and thus, you want to limit how much you add, where and why.

All else is spot on though Tresrey parts might be out of stock so you'll have to check on availability. If not, Exotek hubs are nice too. Just wish they'd revise them so the mounting of the turnbuckles is sideways as opposed to horizontal for superior performance.

Same here.. i've owed both the v1 and v2 and never broke the plastic diff ring. I have seen one broke, can't recall if it was on the desc410 or the dex. However, it's not a common breaking point. Maybe it's a must on the desc410.

But for sure, the alum servo saver is an absolute must on the v4. If was a v3, there are some other abs must, but they are addressed on the v4.

the diff hoop, I think a few people broke it because they were using the wrong CVD pins, and they didn't use red loctite to secure the screw. the durango 2x10mm pin for cvd has a dent in the middle, together you need red loctite to secure the set screw. Otherwise when the pin gets loose, the vibration will kill the hoop. And in that case, aluminum won't hold either. (install it properly plastic hoop is just fine, durango didn't even have an aluminum option for the front one).

another thing, for V4, it's using UJ, the pin will never fell out, diff hoop is even more unnecessary.

Are people talking about the Servo "Horn" or the "servo saver" being a good upgrade?

Also in the dex410V4 could some one tell me what the kit pistons are with the holes already in them, I can not read that small sorry.

What is needed to be done to run 12mm hexes? And does it retain the correct offset if you do? I'm asking bc a lot of tracks around me use typos and aka does not offer a wheel for the Durango which makes no sense since Ryan Lutz runs for Durango and AKA

v4 arm is not as strong as v3 ones, so I guess they are revising the mold and coming up with better ones.
