Build is going ok so far. Quality seems very good. Only got take page 22 for the night. Question thou, I didn't pay attention before but does the spur gear assembly have to come out to get the batteries out? That seems very odd. Has anyone cut the center part of the battery hold down that way it swings open and clears the rear center drive shaft?

Yep, i have done that on all my Dex410s. If you remove the middle segments and separate the two, it can pass by the drive shaft and allow side access for loading in batteries. ( i think I've posted a pic here before many pages back)

The bonus also if you remove the middle is that the driveshafts ( on the old cars not ones with D-Joint or Universals ) don't rub on the middle and end of the strap.

It's really simple to remove the slipper assembly to pop out the batteries. No biggie for me but I do see the practicality and convenience of cutting the centers off the hold down. I might just do it this weekend since we were rescheduled for next weekend.

That stinks. I hope the class comes back in a strong way over there so you can enjoy one of the best and most fun classes to race!

Ridiculous price too!

Thanks

Yea, me too. It is a really fun class!

And you think the price is way high? I might need to research it a little more for a good value, but I already got a 110 offer on eBay and its only been listed for an hour. I'll look up and adjust the price tomorrow. I'm out of town and just kinda through a number out.

No way. That's DIRT CHEAP!!

On the cheap side 410's sell for $170-ish depending on spares, wheels, upgrades and equipment. I want one for my son but not prepared to drop more cash on the servo, transponder, ESC and Motor at this moment. Will wait until I'm ready and then hope to score a steal of a deal like yours.

Yeah, that's a shame RC_Dude, that's a steal of a deal! There's no class here for the DEX either but I can't part with mine. It's the closest thing to onroad precision I can drive around here until an onroad track opens up.

Haha for real, the class is very fast and precise witch is awesome on dirt! Only one of the 3 tracks "clossish" to me has anything onroad but they only run breakout classes onroad witch doesn't seem fun to me... I understand the open class costing too much for new tires every race but why not just spec what tires you run and leave it to the driver to go as fast as possible on those tires? Instead your lap doesn't count if you go too fast...

Generally I use the carbon brace, the plastic is good for low traction tracks where you need a bit more flex.
