I had to replace an aluminum shock cylinder because of an aluminum seal holder that stripped it. I have since gone to only plastic replacement parts. I guess the aluminum caps are better because they won't strip out as easily as plastic, but if the force is that great, I would rather replace another plastic cap. I was lucky to have another car that I could get a spare and finish my race.

I did okay, but the handling still isn't that good for some reason. The rear universal did help a lot though.

Im a little over how easy the cvd dust boots split and fall apart are there any alternative one's that fit or is everyone just spraying the cvd with wd40 or similar before running the buggy?

Screw boots. Too much hassle.

WD40 is expelled rather instantaneously so it's not very much help.

I did something unique and made a 50/50 lube mix consisting AE Black Diff Lube and some Durango green grease and applied it in all CVD joints and it's perfect. To re-apply I simply take a touch of it with one of my smaller allen drivers and press it into the edge seam and roll the car so it coats the entire seam and then blast it with a burt of air to ensure it coats everything inside.

well as much as I have loved my 410, I decided to give the 22-4 a shot. My 22 2.0 has been an absolute blast to drive, so we shall see how the 22-4 is....

I have seen reliability issues with them, good luck. I have seen reliability issues with them all from time to time. An Xray split a drive shaft last week. You will need a stronger motor for the belt system, but they have great traction.

Ive had a variety of durangos all which started with my dex408 ( now the v2, although I wont be purchasing the v3/dex8. Saw it at chitown shootout this weekend dont like the conventional battery layout). I loved that car so much it made me try out the 410v3. That car was a love / hate relationship. I love how nimble it was, and how aggressive turn in was. It took me a good while to get the ass end of that car planted, but I was constantly plagued with turnbuckles popping off, and the rear center driveshaft popping out on a less than perfect landing. The 14mm wheels is pain in the ass (yes i know I could convert to 12mm, but after spending 180 bucks in upgrades I was not spending another dime) While in Europe (vacation) last October i was able to scoop up a v4 at too good of a price to pass up. The car has been amazing, that being said I dumped some dough into it to get it where I wanted.

The biggest things I will miss from the 410
- unbelievably easy to work on (unless you are mounting electronics, broke a wing mount/ rear bulk head or need to do anything to the steering)
-the unique look
-gear diffs ( I hate ball diffs, better or worse I just suck at building them smooth)

Things I wont miss

-14mm wheels lack of an evo /60mm wheel for the durango
-those ugly yellow wheels
-the tight space to mount electronics
-not being able to fit SMC shorties ( i know people have done it, but never worked for me)
-less than truly available parts support

I was waiting for the serpent buggy to give that a shot, but serpent parts are generally more expensive than TLR / Dingo

I have had two variations of the b44 and hated AE fitment / part quality

I have a couple of questions about the 410 v3 buggy.
1) can i run a shorty battery pack in it instead of saddle or square?
2) does someone make hex adaptors to fit associated B44.3 front and wheels?
i've been a Dingo racer for last 3 years but went to a B44.3 just to try. well I HATE IT!!! it's like driving a brick with wheels.

so i'm looking for a V3 or V4 buggy if anyone knows of someone selling one.

1.) you can run shorties with some modifications(SMC's seem to be tough to fit)
2.) search this thread you can run b44 wheels

Default RC 101.....PLEASE

I'm new to this and stumped.

Just built my kit.....brand new, drove it down driveway 3 feet and it barely moved. Pull trigger...motor spins....that spins center diff very fast......front and rear dog bones spin up......vehicle barely moves. Lift car up in air and pull trigger and the wheels pretty much balloon up.

I noticed if I lift either the front or the rear end up.....hand turn a wheel, the opposite wheel doesn't move at all.

Center diff has been out and reassembled, it's full of oil.

Any ideas please? Thank you!

Sounds like you are in the wrong thread, no center diff unless you are running an aftermarket chassis?

TD510001 is what you need to run to run 44.3 front rims, assuming they are still 10mm.
Exotek make some 12mm hexes that will fit for the rears http://www.exotekracing.com/dex210-410-12mm-hex-set-2/
