BBBT... nice report! Thanks for all your testing and information. I can't wait to get mine out and run with you. I just wired it up last night and have a really nice layout for anyone with a RS. I'll post pics later.... gotta go fly, be back this afternoon with some pics.

Default Front aluminum suspension holder upgrade

Just a quick tip. If you decide to upgrade the 410r to the front aluminum braces, part 330004 and 330006 you will also need to order a set of suspension arm pivot balls, part 330037. The hinge pins float in the pivot balls. Take a look at the 410 manual, page 25 if you want to see what I mean.

Default setup

does anyone have a setup that calms the rear end?

I find it alot tailly/nervous compared to other 4wd's I've driven/own.

have tried lengthening rear camber link, 50grams on top of lipos, softer rear oil and springs, doesn't seem to have changed much however. Running 20k/5k diff oils.

Is it loose on power, off power, or just all the time? I ran 3k in the rear with the stock suspension geometry, 3 hole pistons drilled out to 1.3mm with 35 wt oil and light green springs and my rear end was pretty much locked in. I also ran the brass skid plate.

So what pistons and springs, what surface/tyres, used all/side/rear weight, ride height, other setup ?

focus on your ride height!! U can also move your rear arms completely foward!! Go up in diff fluid! And most important adjust your slipper correctly maybe loosen it a tad and u must have the correct tire so it doesnt wash out jmo!!!

i agree, i think its not so much as ur rear end is loose, but your front is very aggressive, i run 10k front and 2k rear, and it will also depend on your tire selection

I just got mine built. Really nice kit. I dumped the B44 for this one. I just wanted to share my electronic layout. The new SAVOX servo seems really fast and precise!

I went with 50k front dif and 20k rear diff.
Makes it heaps better, in a not so nervous type of way.
Much calmer into and out of turns.
Also try toe out on front, which will make it a little more sensitive on initial steering, but through the corner it will be less steery.

thanks guys, the surface I run on is hard packed clay, grippy when clean, and slippery when there is a fine dusk on surface. Car is loose off power. Tires of choice at my track is holeshots and x2000. My setup was standard the last time I used the car except rear pistons drilled out to 1.3mm and the softest kyosho black springs and 20k/5k diff oils with only 50gm on lipos. Removed rear bar. Usually run 35/30 shock oils.

I will try the changes suggested, one at a time, starting with moving the rear hubs forward, then 10k front oil, and maybe stiffer front roll bar. And as a last resort, spend the ridiculous amount for the lead weight kit.

Are you running the lipo weights? Where are you stacking the weight you are adding?
