Yup thats an easy one thankfully. For maximum fun and entertainment for your friends, put just one in upside down (after a rushed oil change between rounds) then drop your car on the track and try and drive it LOL ... been there, done that

Yep, had the same problem with my Desc410R, ran great in reverse. My Durango buds knew exactly what happened.

Broke the front carbon one yesterday also put on composite one not sure if it was a very one or not but it didn't fit great front sway rubbed on it. It to broke from a mild crash. So chances are rear sucks too.

I put the aluminum one on front after I broke the carbon and will do the same if I break the rear one. I have bent the aluminum front already, but it bends back.

yeah surprisingly I've not broken the front after some nasty tumbles, Thanks to the folks on this thread recommending the HPI Vorza shock covers.

I broke the rear at the camber link ballstud on the right side.

I have a front Alum one on deck, just in case. I don't think you can get them anymore (both show Disc. by Manufacture).

Someone had 5mm ones drawn up, that is a solution. I've cleared off the front bulkhead but never broke a 5mm tower. The plastic is probably weak, aluminum is discontinued. Look to see if you can get the only carbon tower, not the fine tune, much stronger. Great Hobbies has them if they're discontinued.

Anybody else have bad luck with the front inner hinge pins bending? Friend broke an arm and when I was replacing it found out that the pin was bent also. Should I just get the ti ones from lungsford or are they bending also?

Yes that happens. I've actually even managed to bend McMaster pins lately, which I never though was possible. But the crashes were my own fault (and in cold weather), and I doubt many other brands would have survived the crashes.

The McMaster are the strongest and best value. Get them from http://www.mcmaster.com/ . part # 91595A143. They come in a pack of ten and you have to Dremel the end to shorten them. But they are super strong. I run them in the DESC410v2 also.

Unfortunately McMaster doesn't ship to Canada.

The aluminum tower was part of an earlier kit. I also use an aluminum rear tower on my DESC410 as well.

Has anyone tried a centre diff in there 410 before?

All the new cars that are coming out have centre diff and they seem to be doing well so I have been looking for a option that would let me run a centre diff. I've seen the b44.3 diff as that's extremely thin so I'm hoping that it might fit.

You will also have the extra weight and no slip feature. I find the least complicated don't break as often, and in 4wd buggy, this means a lot. I need to know what tires are working best, has anyone tried Electrons on the front? I am using Scrubs up front, but they pack easily.
