I have not been to a track where pressure points and typos work equal in Ohio

I just bought a set of K1 hexes to try with the 22-4 EVO wheels. I also picked up a set of B44 EVO wheels as I already have 10mm durango hexes up front and I have been using 12mm avid hexes in the rear.

I"ll post pics of the EVO wheels and the K1 hexes with measurements and all. I also have stock Durango wheels with tresrey hexes so I can post measurements/comparisons to the EVO and my current J Concepts Inverse.

I've noticed the inverse even though it's a two piece wheel is lighter than the durango wheel. I think it's about 7 or 8 grams per wheel.

Anybody race there 410 with the front diff and drive shafts removed in 2wd class on carpet track, seems to be the trend at my local gives them a true mid motor buggy is the argument

I'd be nervous with this car. A lot of heat is already generated at the slipper and its split between the front and the back. And on the true mid motor thing, i dont believe in that. If its between the axles its mid motor and if its behind the rear axle its rear motor. Idk if you'd want the motor that forward anyway.

I don't see whythe square pack woould be any different from saddles. It just cleans up wiring a bit.

I've seen some weird cars with this type of setup but I don't think they are 410s…..I didn't pay much attention as mechanically speaking it seems like a ton of extra gear in between that isn't really needed. Mid motor is between the wheels….(ditto!) Rear motor is behind the wheels. I might also say that it's better to have the motor rotation in the same plane as the spin of the wheels. This way your torque vectors CAN work together and you don't develop torque steering.

My forum could use some love so please come one come all:

both Xray (XB4 2wd) and teamC(TM2) has car with that settings.
Last year Jorn used this setup in his wide chassis prototype and won german 2wd national.

gear friction wise, it has friction from pinion to spur (1), and bevel gear to diff ring gear(2). While traditional 4 gear transmission has pinion to spur(1), layshaft to 1st idle(2), 1st idle to 2nd idle(3), 2nd idle to diff gear(4).

the drive train may be slightly heavier with the shaft there, but those machined steel gear are also significantly stronger than any aluminum/plastic stuff in 2wd gearbox.

For current dex410, not that much of a good choice, you may want to move the saddle battery all the way to the back, side by side, to be a bit more competitive, especially when grip isn't that high.
*Xray's Tylor Vic has 80g under the battery for his xb4 2wd. And the setup runs on high traction clay track.
