associated b5 battery strap on the dex410. its a direct fit and doesnt wobble up & down like the original one.

i recommend getting the carbon one as its thinner and gets alot more clearance.

i run shorty & sqaure

Can you slide the shorty out without removing the spur gear

1. Can someone confirm if the black shock preload nuts come with the rubber seals (like the gold nuts do)?

2. Is there a shock cap removal tool for big bore shocks? Similar to AE and TLR shock tools?

Thanks!

They tore up the track in certain sections, so no racing today, arghh. I really wanted to get a feel for the RSX in this.

Mine is still down. Waiting for the correct 21 castor block to show up. I did pull the trigger on the ujoint's for the front and rear mid's. I am hoping this will help with some of my heat issues and drag on the car. I am hoping the castor blocks settle the car down a bit.

So i got my car to the track today. The motor is actually a trinity 3.5. 7.5 turn. ESC is a Tekin RS Pro. The car handled great. Unfortunately, i could not get the car to stay cool. I went from a 87/21 to 87/19 temps were still getting to 170 on the motor and 160 on the ESC. Any ideas on that setup because i had nothing for it. I ran out of adjustment to go any lower on pinon and the longest run was only 6min.
I ended up pulling that setup and putting in a Trackstar 120A Turbo with a Trackstar 6.5 so far i haven't seen temps above 135.
Thanks for reading!

I think your under geared I usually use 87/23-24 with a 7.5. On a side note to those that want less steering instead of the caster blocks have you tried stiffer springs in the front, im using dark red fronts and it helped with rear traction as I run shorty packs, ill be testing yellow fronts with light red rear springs next time out as it seems odd that the 410 comes standard with the same springs as the 210 but the 410 is much heavier.

I actually just changed tire compound. Because of the 17 degree stock castor blocks that I currently have. I went to a clay front SS rear. Normally run SS all around. I also went to a 40wt front oil with the dino set up. It pushes just too much. I can't hold a line coming out of a 180 or even a sweeper. When I change to a SS front then it over steers right into a tube LOL. Hoping the castor blocks smooth it out and keeps me tight into corners.

Default DEX410 Shorty

This is a mod a good friend at RC Arena Australia suggested I try to use a shorty. It uses a plastic part used to fit NiMH batteries in the original DEX410 v1.

If done correctly you simple pop the slipper out and two thumb screw and the battery strap and shorty slide in and out real easy.

Mod is simple.
1. Use the little ears on the side pod with a hole as a guide to drill 3mm hole
2. Countersunk the hole on the underside until screw fits flush
3. Use a M3X18mm for the hole and use a M3 locknut to secure
4. On the rear bulkhead there are two little ears sticking out into the battery area. Trim these about 2-3mm
5. The nub plastic slipper mount which the battery clip goes through; cut this off until flush with rest of the mount.
6. Done! Use your favourite thumb nuts
