So a 2wd Team C car beats you with your DEX410 ? You better start training more

My front center drive shaft keeps popping out. It appears that I have too much chassis flex. Anyway to fix this?

Less of the bounce you get on tough jumps and I felt like I could get on the throttle much sooner.

All that being said I wonder if durango will adopt a center diff for the V5 car? Maybe they will just call it the Bman410?
That would be awesome! But I'd let them call it what they want if they allow me 5% of the sales....

hahahahaha, I hear ya brotha!

Forgive me durango fans but I've been looking at the D413. I like some of the elements specifically the shock tower and mount design with lots of extra bracing. It also sounds like my local shop is going to ditch durango and carry hot bodies parts. I do think it's a little too phat though. That's what I dig about my 410. It's very narrow.

BMan it doesn't seem possible to fit a 3rd diff in the standard length chassis is that right? I know your setup is longer...

Are you sure its the right part? Mine has a lot of room for error.

With keeping the stock layout, No. If you ran a shorty across the back and ran shorter driveshafts, maybe.

Sounds like the rear support posts on the front top deck are loose or missing screws, its creating too much flex in the front end.

So Im new to the Durango brand and 4 wheel mod. Had my first race and dominated all the 22-4s. In practice we have a rhythm section and found it better to quad into it. Unfortunately I cased it right on the knuckle of the landing and popped out my front drive shaft as well. Talked to some people and it seems it is a problem on those extreme situations. If you try and twist the chassis it is only front to back that moves, side to side is very stiff. If you have not held a 22-4 they don't move at all. When I get some time I will try and shim the drive shaft so it goes into the center out drive more. Might have to notch the pinion for the set screw.

I noticed you are using the aluminium servo mount, there can be an issue of the top deck moving because it doesn't have the locators that fit into the top deck hole like the plastic mount. There was a mod for it, but I'll have to try find it.

Found it here http://www.rctech.net/forum/11408457-post11388.html

Tekin's rs gen 2 will power this buggy? I have a brand new one that I was going to sell but when I get the dex410 I would like to use the gen 2?

I'd suggest you sell the RS and buy something that can handle lower turn motors like 6.5 & 5.5 which are the most popular for 1/10 4wd.

My rs gen 2 8.5 ran to hot for my liking, I also found it lacked. Switched it for a flow and a 6.5

Ok. I was just wondering because I sold my 2wd buggy and have the tekin rs gen 2 for sale now so I wasn't sure. What other esc's work good with this buggy?
