let me say this. i love my dex v3r with aluminum mounts. drives great! but i race on big outdoor tracks while im racing on big 1/8 tracks driving the wheeler trying to drum up support for the a couple 1/10 tracks being built. it seems my dex does not finish alot of races or finishes limping due to a Lot of little stuff like broken hinge pin, a couple arms, bearings going out quickly, screws backing out, etc.

it is getting annoying so i preordered a b44.3. parts can get anywhere. i will keep the 410 cause it drives so good.

now my dest210? i love that rig. better than ae and more durable it seems too.

I'm running Associated oils, 10K front diff, 5K rear diff, 40 front shocks and 30 rear shocks with 4 hole pistons front and rear. Alot depends on your track and driving style. Where I drive it feels plush and planted and has good turn in and exit on and off power.

Seems like lots of guys here run 7K & 3K diffs, I've yet to try it.

Well you gotta look at the fact that you're running a 1/10th buggy on a 1/8th track. Out door tracks are also harder on most cars because the dirt tends to be a little more abrasive on cars/parts/bearings. I run at 2 local tracks here 1 is 1/10th and the other is 1/8th. My car is way more at home at the 1/10th track because the layout is purpose built for 1/10th cars so you don't have to stretch or push too hard to make or clear the jumps. On the 1/8th track however even they have built the layout to suit 1/10th scales its still not the same as on a 1/10th track.

absolutlety. i cant wait to go back to 1/10 track. it just can be agrivating. last week i finished 2 of the 4 races without being either broke or running but still broke. the last time before same way. dont get me wrong i love the dex. i just want something that takes the abuse that a 1/8 track dishes out a little better.

1/8th scales can barely cope with what the track dishes out! lol, Good luck finding a 1/10 than can handle that abuse.

if i remember correctly and I'm about to test my 81T machined spur to check, but aren't the machined spurs somewhat thicker and thus don't work in the DEX410? Sorry if I missed it...

THIS!!!

We have a rather HUGE 1/8 track here that we dubbed the 1/10 killer because almost every 1/10 vehicle succumbs to its wrath at some point!!!

I have a 22, 4.2, T4.1, 410, RB5 and it's a rare occasion that something on one of my cars doesn't break on that track, and usually it's multiple cars. It's not even a question of if, but when. It's so rampant I think the track should have Queen's Another One Bites the Dust cued and ready to play, but it might end up sounding like a skipping CD. LOL

Ironically, the car that's proved to be most durable on that killer track is my 410, but that's because it has the traction, bite and speed to launch off the jumps about as good as the 8th scale cars so it doesn't slap or short change jumps.

On 1/10 tracks on the other hand, all my vehicles have proven to be quite durable,including the 410, outside the Front A-Spec arms I had to buy when the B-Specs were out of stock, and I finally fractures my front shock tower after a year and a half of enduring crashes and tumbles, but it held on until the end of my main! Outside of that I don't recall breaking anything on the 410, and the precision fit of the components is unparalleled. The rear arms are the original ones and there isn't even a hint of slop or play in them, and boy do they have miles on them.

i never said it would go away completly. and i never blamed the dex. what im trying to say is if im going to race on both 1/10 and 1/8, i would rather have a brand that its easier to get parts for and a brand that more aftermarket stuff is more avalible for cause its a more popular kit.

if you think im bashing the dex your wrong. I will be keeping it. and i cant wait till the 1/10 only tracks open since im a 1/10 guy though and through.

My experience with the 410 is that is isn't brittle and its quite robust. People used to say they were 'weak' compared to others but I don't know what they were comparing to since the main competition was the B4.x. 4wd buggy is a big class at the track I frequent (that was just shut down last week) and the opinion is that since all the other releases, such as the 22-4 and xb4, that the durango doesn't seem to be as brittle anymore when you compare.

The Tekin RSX will fit, you can find pictures of Ryan Lutz's DEX410 with it installed here http://events.redrc.net/tag/2013-ep-...ds-usa/page/5/
