Steering brace? Which part is that?

Mmmm. Just installed Big Bore Alum caps. Very sexy.

As they don't come with instructions, good to note there is a quick instruction sheet for installation here: http://www.team-durango.com/part-inf...artNo=TD230034

If your V2 doesn't have aluminum hinge pin mounts you'll want them too as the plastic ones break.

The servo I use is a Savox 1257 (SC-1257TG) and it's more than up to the job.
I use turnigy saddles in my buggy since they're lighter than the square packs, but use their squares in the DESC410. Both work great for me.
+1

It's a beast on the track, easy to work on (getting the electronics in takes some planning), and very consistent.
Spend some time building / going over the CVDs.... it'll throw pins if they aren't just right.

Anyone had any issues with the Servo arm/link popping off the ball on the v4 ? Never really had that issue with the v2/v4. Maybe my servo-saver is too tight ?

thanks for the advice on the equipment. I will have my radio and extra receiver and servo on tuesday. i will be able to at least run my dex210 until I get my other speed control/motor/batteries. I ordered a hitec 7966 servo to try it out, if it doesnt work well i will switch it out (from what i read the speed passions only put out 5.75volts at 3A so i didn't want to go with a HV servo but if i have to i will get one).

Not sure if Durango has more than one style but mine did the same thing. I ended up buying a Losi one. You would think TD would make something to fit all their cars since that is a relatively common part.

Yeah that's a little bit of an issue with the 410 but most of us just grind it down to gain the proper clearance for the horn.

Sorry guys, I meant the servo mount: TD340019. The alum. version is TD TD340002. I've been running the alum for a while but as I think about try to lose weight I wonder how heavy the alum servo mount is versus the plastic...

I don't imagine that the servo mounts differ by more than a gram or two. This particular part doesn't seem to be receiving much stress in use, so I personally don't see the need to hop it up to aluminum.
If you really feel the need to reduce weight up front maybe a low profile servo would help?

I upgraded to the Alum version after I broke the plastic part. I've looked into low profile servos as well but most seem to be fairly low torque comparatively. Have you had any experience with a low profile servo in this car?

Maybe someone can weigh the plastic part for me and I'll weight my alum part?
