The v4 comes standard with 19 caster blocks instead of the 17 in the v3 kit and it comes with a new cab forward body.
Got it, thanks! looking to trade a dex408 for a dex410, if not, i'll sell then buy. lol
A couple guys at the track are hoping they'll get a 4WD 1/10 buggy class going again

To some degree. It can be still aggressive according to setup. The length was needed to use stock TD components. You can still run the rear arms forward to achieve that aggressive feel.

Guys who are using the new front arms, have you tried moving the castor blocks back or forward ? I think Ryan lutz was saying he likes to run it in the middle for a slightly less aggressive feel over the older arms which didn't have room for spacers.

I prefer caster blocks full forward. Its less aggressive. Moving it more to the rear will make the steering more aggressive (shorter wheelbase)

Guys,

based on your recommendations of not going with higher than 25mm LIPOs , I bought 2 pairs of Turnigy nano-tech 4850mah 2S3P 50~100C Hardcase Lipo Saddle Pack, specs:

Capacity: 4850mAh
Voltage: 2S3P / 2S Cell / 7.4V
Discharge: 50C Constant / 100C Burst
Weight: 132g EA (290g Total Inc Wires)
Dimensions: 69x47x25mm EA
Balance Plug: JST-XH
Discharge Plug: 4mm Bullet-connector to your own custom plug
Model no: NC4850.2S3P.50


And they do not fit in height, can't close the lid ????
Should they ? Or do I need to make some mod to the DEX410v3 ?

Thanks for the help in advance

Max

Per chance you've put the battery hinge pin in the lower hole ?

the battery strap is set to the highest hole on the loop? I had to move mine to the top hole to fit the 5100 MAH saddles in from turnigy.

No. I can't push the pin in. I need 1mm in height and 2mm in length.

Is the dex410v4 new lipo brace In any way better for theses max_size lipo??

I have the same batteries, Its a really tight fit I actually use the Type B 410 Lipo battery brace due to having a carbon chassis and alloy side pods, as well as a hacked up version of the Plastic Spur mount it dosent have the battery clip hole in it so I can flex the pin into the hole a little easier.

http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD320244

It does get easier over time from use.




Also is anyone using a shorty in there 410 ?? Im going to try it next race meet as i run in a 17.5 class weight came down 50g.

I have the rear skid weight so it should be OK hopefully not to loose in the rear.

I'm not sure why but I can't get my SMC shorty to fit down the middle like this. I can't fit my battery wires in and I can't put the strap down. It's also fairly tough to put the battery in in the first place, without squeezing the plastic portion of the motor mount out of the way.
