The Cat is tougher than everything but the 410, that thing is like a super nimble tank!
Glad to hear you like many others are enjoying the DEX410R
I've been doing mad nitro racing 18 weeks so far
I believe LIR is in the process of getting a J Concept race going on soon
Talk to you soon

How are the diffs holding up? I have heard rumors of some sort of diff issue, bu not sure what. Maybe same as the oring question, but wanted to make sure before jumping in and buying the kit.

Yeah, if you build the diffs wrong..you will have problems. You build them right, you won't have any problems... Car is built very very well but still, if it is not put together right, issues will arise...

I think it is just: 2.0mm CVD's, new front hub w/ larger outer bearing and 25mm battery hold down(and the parts needed to do that), right?

Here's what our Durango Sales Folks sent me:

-----------------------

Here is the Team Durango info to update the 2009 to the 2010.

The DEX410 was originally designed around lipo packs that were 23.5mm tall. This was the maximum height for a legal lipo battery at the time.
Since then there has been a change in the regulations, increasing this maximum height dimension to allow lipos of up to 25mm to be used for racing.
When developing the DEX410R model this change in battery regulations was taken into account and existing parts were revised to allow the fitment of 25mm high lipo packs.
Here we show you what parts are required to fit 25mm high lipos in the original DEX410.

Parts Required:-
TDR310155 MID DRIVE GEAR PLATE (ALUMINIUM) (25MM)
TDR310156 MOTOR MOUNT PLATE (25mm)
TDR310039 GEAR BOX SET: FRONT & REAR
TDR320005 BATTERY HOLDER SET (LIPO)

The centreline transmission on the DEX410 runs quite close to the battery pack. To use a taller battery the centreline transmission needs to be raised slightly.

Raising the slipper clutch assembly:-
To do this there is a new motor mount and mid drive gear plate that raises the slipper assembly, these are part numbers TD310155 and TD310156.
New mid gear plate (TD310155) on the left mounts the slipper assembly in a higher position then the original mid gear plate (TD310008) on the right
Increasing the angle of the rear gearbox:-
Raising the slipper assembly will give clearance for the battery pack in the middle of the car. It is also necessary to raise the angle of the gearbox to give clearance for the battery back along the length of the driveshaft. To do this we have updated the gearbox holder on TD310039 gear box set. This now holds the rear gear box at a slightly higher angle, giving the driveshaft more clearance over the battery pack.
New gearbox holder on the left holds the rear gearbox at a greater angle than the old gearbox holder
With these parts fitted there is now clearance under the centre driveshaft for 25mm lipo battery packs.
Fitting the lipo battery holder:-
There are two heights at which the lipo battery holder can be mounted. The lower one is for 23.5mm high lipo battery packs and the higher for 25mm high lipo battery packs.
At the hinge end the gearbox holder now has two holes. Use the upper hole for 25mm lipo battery packs.
New gearbox holder has two positions for mounting the battery strap
We have modified the lipo battery holder, part TD320005, so that the parts tree now includes spacers to raise the front mount for the strap in the middle of the car. When using 25mm lipo batteries these spacers go in-between the front mount for the battery strap and the chassis, slightly longer screws will be required due to the thickness of the spacers.
The two spacers included in TD320005 are for spacing up the front battery mount when using 25mm lipo batteries
With the spacers under the front battery mount and the battery strap fitted in the upper of the two positions for the hinge end you know have a secure fitting for your 25mm high lipo battery.

I probably have one of the first spec models and the diffs have been holding up fine after months of practice. The rear on mine is starting to sweat a little bit, but Grapejiuce was kind enough to build me a spare diff

I will probably swap it out before winter race season hits, then refresh the other one. That way I'll always have a spare, fresh diff ready to go in if needed.

Now to pick up some plastic side plates. WATCH OUT GRAPE!

Just asking, will there be any benefit if I change the aluminum side guards with plastic ones?

Well I have not run either yet but the plastic will give your chassis more flex which is typically desired with this car.
