1. Motor turn conversation leaves me unclear. I have a super fast friend running a 7.5T Reedy Sonic in his XB4. He's a better driver than me and suggested I get an 8.5T. We race at a smallish indoor track (Island Raceway-Long Island NY)

2. Looking at the Savox 1251MG and 1252MG Low Pro Servos. Opinions? I have full size servos but read a lot here about front heaviness of the DEX410. (I bought the 30gr rear skid weight).

3. Want to get Lunsford Turnbuckle Set. Should I get the 3mm or the 3.5mm Superduty? Should I run Lunsford or DEX410V4 Ball Cups?

4. Are the DEX410V4 kit shock springs a good starting point or should I get other springs?

Thanks, Jason
1. For a smaller track, those motor sizes sound right.
2. I've seen too many broken gears in low profile servos to recommend them for 4wd offroad. I would recommend a Savox 1257tg or 1258tg.
3. I've run the 3mm turnbuckles on my v3 without issues. The v4 cups are fine, if you do change ball cups you will need to change ball studs too.
4. The kit springs are a good starting point.

if there is enough interest, I can order up some 5mm carbon and make up some towers. I have the 410 going on the design bench next week. It will take about 2 weeks.

Durango had a 'defective' run included in a batch of kits like mine and it's the bees knees, just a slight bit of trimming with an xacto and it's perfect. I'd recommend them for sure

Have you also considered a making a graphite chassis for the 410? Now that I'm asking I wonder if we talked about it on open source durango already….

like the atomic carbon ultra 410 with a carbon tub chassis? I don't think there's any benefit for one like the 8racing one, you don't save any weight with the alloy side pods.

I have been researching the tub chassis, along with some other options.

Not sure about the difference in weight between the aluminium and carbon chassis, but the aluminium side pods are 5g heavier per pod.

The difference was 5g and the alloy side pod has velcro and chassis protector on it so it would be nearly the same.

The carbon chassis with alloy side pods saves around 50-60g, can't remember exactly.

Whats a Dex410 normally weigh with Alloy chassis?

With mine I have a 8 racing carbon chassis, alloy sidepods SP Reveton Pro esc a full servo, titanium cambers links,30g rear weight, proline bulldog shell, sway bars front rear, holeshot tyres with open cells, nanotech saddles and race weight is 1750g.

I can't remeber what it was with the alloy chassis so unsure on the weight saving.

Just weighed my v4 mine in at 1826g. Pretty much stock, orca saddles, pin points with closed cell foams, tekin rsx combo and a full sized servo

Thanks EKT good to know I never wanted to pull the car down to its chassis to check weight but that sense so the carbon chassis is lighter.
