My track I have tried dirt webs front and rear in SS and electrons rear SS and clay electrons front. I have the 17 degree castor block still (it's so expensive LOL) We run a medium bite clay and traction is getting better every week. Dirtwebs were really loose compared to the electrons on the rear. Fronts...the dirtwebs hooked decent but the clay electrons take the twitch out. I am going to try a sway bar on the front. I kind of like the 17's but haven't driven anything else. Rear is planted.

Dino, going up in spring on the rear prevent bottoming out? She sure slaps the ground a lot. Is that a buggy tendency or should I go up a bit in oil? Running your shock, oil, spring package. get's around 45 degrees in the building. The front seems pretty good.

Glad to hear about the Electrons on the front, as I just ordered a set, and some pinion gears for it. I ordered 21 and 22 as I use an 8.5.

All tknowhe new cars that are 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.

There's a few forum members who have managed to go the centre diff in dex410. I know the fast local assoc sponsored driver runs 100k in the c/diff and have seen a setup sheet where he used a slipper and ball diffs in his b44.3 so i dont think its a must have item, the v4 2way slipper should be as good as running really thick c/diff fluids that all the pros seem to run in there d413, b44.3 etc...

Hey guys, I've been a TLR guy for a while now but wanna try a the durango stuff for a minute. What are the things I need for this car along with tuning stuff. I have tlr low frequency springs I can use but what else besides springs does this car need? It's a V3 that I just picked up. Thanks for the help!

really all that is needed is the 19 or 21 castor blocks (19 blocks and up one compound in tire). sway bars and the type b pistons. Really good set up on petit rc. Dino Delemos. I have been running his setup on this car plus all my other cars. Dialed!

Thanks, do you have any ideas how they did it?

I race on astro so setups might be a little bit different.

Bman's 3XNT made a chassis that allows for a center diff http://www.rctech.net/forum/13643943-post17153.html

So what is required to install the two way slipper, and is it really that much better than the old one? I wonder if one will be available for the Desc410? Desc210?

If I recall, the 2-way is a drop-in for the v3 buggy (as they changed the lengths of the center cvd's in the v3).

desc410 already has a center diff to tune front/rear power transfer.

Not sure why you'd want it in the desc210 2wd car.

I recommend a brick pack, less wires (internal resistance). Trinity Brick or Half Brick both are great. Vant make a nice pack. Also Reedy and some run the Nanotech also (from Hobbyking). Depends on your preference and budget . Just make sure its less that 25mm high...
