How about some under the hood shots!

Not much to see under the hood, it is all empty at this point. Yet to get a motor, ESC and RX for it.

The machined gear is only slightly quieter. It's more about gear mesh in the diffs and your cv joints. If those are done right the car can be quiet. It won't be as quiet as a belt drive car tho so you can not compare.

Ok thanks, do you reckon its the mesh of the ring and drive gear being to tight or to loose that would make it very loud?

Too tight will be very loud and cause premature bearing failure. Too loose will be quiet till the teeth strip out. I shim mine to get the same mesh as my motor pinion to spur. Then I use red grease on the gears to keep em lubed and quiet.

I've found the secret to getting the 410 to be a little quieter is to make sure you shim the differentials properly. You have to make sure the diff is aligned properly. it takes some guesswork, install a shim, reassemble and spin to check. Should be easy to feel, usually you will have a tough spot when you roll it around and that means you need another shim. Keep adjusting until it's perfect.

Another tip is to set your gear mess with the whole center gear/slipper setup out of the car. It's only a few screws in the bottom and if you use the radio plate you can take the whole electronic setup out pretty easily. Definitely recommend doing this. Secondly it allows you to much more easily setup the Pinion and Spur mesh. Otherwise you will need a short driver to reach the motor screws while the motor is installed in the car.

Good luck!

Default DEX410

My DEX is only noisey when my cv joints are either worn out or are lacking maintanence. Switching over to the new U-joints takes care of the noise for me. Ive never had my diffs make noise. Poorly maintained or worn CV joints are the biggest culprit.

So snapped the top right off my carbon front tower which I don't really blame it for doing (landed straight on it off a large jump) Now my V3 410 has a had a hard life done many seasons of racing so the v3 carbon Fineadjustment tower I think is really tuff so im going to grab another.

Question is do I need to CA glue the edges of these towers or they dont require it ?

The V4 has the same size shock standoff front and rear in the kit as standard, I was looking to get the quick change ones but there is a front and rear that look to be different sizes, does anyone know which of these 2 are the same size as the origianl black plastic ones that come with the V4 kit?

You want the rears for both front and rear. They are close to the black plastic stand offs.

CA will help for sure. The non fine tune tower is stronger but not nearly as adjustable, a tower in between would of been nice. The 'defective' 5mm tower is king though

Hmm defective 5mm tower you say.

Seems the fine tune tower is not really available right now

Has anyone used atomic carbon towers?

Are they just as tuff ?
