Thanks Nicholas! This type of 2WD setup is very interesting…I think you are right about the friction between shaft 2WD and gear transmission. I wonder if this type of mechanical setup is similarly efficient. I have faith in Hudy and Xray though, great designers. I did look really hard at the XB4 especially since if you don't drive Associated or maybe Kyosho around here parts are a pain. The car I saw last time at OCRC pitted next to me was a bronzish/goldish colored chassis. perhaps a prototype. The driver was actually using his B5M and this was just hanging out.

wow 80grams!!! seems like a ton of weight. I just added 30grams under my rear diff with the Tresrey weight. I'm running a shorty pack in my 210 all the way back against the motor in MM4….

May I ask teeford why are you selling it. Did you decide to go with another car.

4wd is slow at my track. I want to run stock and mod 2wd buggy.

Remove he front end of the drive train and make it your 2WD Mod car!

I've been thinking of trading my B4.2 for another 410 and doing this. I'd keep the skid plate weight in the rear and then install the side weights up front, and then flip the center portion of the drivetrain to balance the car out. The end result should be a true MM RWD car with excellent grip and superior balance than hack MM car "kits".

Plus, then I'd only need to stock parts for a single car.

there's a DMX410 conversion, priced a whopping 200 dollars (at least, if you can get one).

Yup, spoke to them several months ago. The price for a conversion is ludicrous. You can get high end 2WD kits for a little bit more. Looks superb, but the cost is unjustified IMPO.

single piece machine cutted chassis with that complex design. That's just as premium(ridiculous) as the original dex410 (almost every bit is light weight cutted aluminum).

a friend here has been planning his idea of using dex410 drive train to make a 2wd buggy, but he has his own plan for rear suspension. (dex410 isn't famous for its superior rear grip :P)

Well considering that the one tuning option people go to most in order to increase rear grip in 2WD buggies is weight, the 410 with the Rear Skid Plate down below, coupled with it's already hefty drivetrain should already be a step in the right direction. Adding a touch more weight up front to balance it out and it should be really solid.

Looking at the DMX conversion, what they've done is lower the overall weight and try to better balance the car.

Just an FYI for my fellow DEX410 guys…

I've been working on my own high end car stand and just finalized it with the brand new arm my supplier just produced! I'm making 5 total this first run and if all goes well I will be making more. PM me if interested.

FEATURES:
Easily positionable with a simple twist of a knob
Fully padded upper deck
Large Tool Pad on the base. Helps keep tools from rolling off as well as screws and parts
Built in shock stand
Light weight

I made a two wheel drive version called the 310. If you google it, it might come up. Anyway I had a hard time with traction out of the corner with the motor torque. I flipped diff orientation and motor rotation also. It did help but still was not competitive. With the oe diff (screw heads down) the rear of the car would jack up on acceleration. Needless to say this project didn't last very long.

the Team C 2wd buggy uses this setup. I don't know anyone running one to tell you if it works at all.

I have a v4 and I was wondering what most of you guys are running for diff oils. I'm currently running 7k front and 1k rear. However, the car is still not as planted as I like. I was thinking of going to 3k in the rear to help balance out the car. I wish I had more time to test but my track time is limited.

Thanks in advance!!!!
