I had to modify my spur mount to fit my Turnigy batteries and battery strap to do the shorty.

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
I'm running the 5100 and 4850mah turnigy pack no problem. But I took a grinder and made a small point on the end of the pins going through the diff and the battery holder so they align and fit easier. After a few runs the plastic will loosen up a little bit so it gets easier to install them. I do recommend grinding the tip just a little bit though, it allows the pin to align the parts without much effort

I think Bman has tried to run his 410 as a 2wheeler. He called it a 310. We have some pictures and discussion here:

@Pittster! That's a great idea Thanks! I'd love to see them make it easy to use either style pack on the next car!

it is really really tight with a shorty, it is a little harder to put the spur in as it squeezes the plastic, and the battery pin is so hard to get in, i have the wires at the back and they fit either side of the strap, it is so tight that it doesnt move and the wires are close to the strap and hold it, i dont run foam either side.

it works on a track were, you have enough rear grip and not enough steering, as it gives a little less rear grip and more steering, quite a lot more steering!

yeah....I don't need more steering as it is! . That being said For me I'd really only want to do this for a 13.5 or 17.5 class given the weight balance issue. I'm sure if I end up doing a lightweight version of my 410v3 with shorty after I upgrade to a V4 then I will go crazy modifying it. I just like to be able to fix the car with off the shelf parts if possible so I can quick get back on the track. I do love modifying and fabricating though!

Not all shorty packs are a direct fit. I run the Venom 3800 in my 410 without modification. I've got two SMC 4600 shorties but they will not go in without modifying the battery brace. Also, the SMC battery terminals are slightly more towards centre, which is also not ideal. Maybe Leo (ekt) can put up a list of shorties that are a direct fit on his website, as this question comes up fairly often.

Sounds like a good idea, I'll work on adding it to the site. If anyone else knows of shorties that are a direct fit, let me know. I'll also add links to the various mods I know of to get them to fit.

So what motor would you guys recommend in this buggy? I have 550 motors and a Orion 6.5T but I feel the 550's would be too much and the Orion doesn't seem like a very good idea for 2s on an off road track.

I actually ran the Orion VST Pro 6.5 Motor for quite a while in mine, I think it's almost perfect. Unless your on a really small track. Then maybe an 8.5T might be better...The small indoor track north of here often, the 13.5 class of wheelers is just as fast as the open class....

hummm....i'll give it a try. I was mainly concerned about the dirt since it's got those openings in the can. But it's a medium sized track I guess, bigger than the indoor ones I've seen but too small for 1/8 scales and there got to redo it soonish to be more technical and a lot more track in the same space
