So between manufacturers, the components for the BEC in the ESC supply different AMPs to the servos. But you can't really complain about the price of a trackstar right?

Anyhow, just pick up a power cap for the receiver. Its only a few bucks.

We also run Futaba RX which I think can take a bigger brownout. I assume you are running spectrum RX?

Another thing worth checking. Try someone else's Lipo which has a 50-60C or higher rating (preferable a name brand). It also might by the Lipo that can't supply enough current under acceleration when using a 6.5T motor. Cause I seen that happen with low turn motors before.
So i installed the power cap today and most of my problems seem to have gone away. no more runaway car however i did find the range limitations. I set the ESC back to default and the car seems very steady. Now i just need to get it to the track!

The larger rims favour smoother high speed tracks, while the scrub/ion are better for more rutted tracks.
And the front tires seem to last forever using this combination, but it does take away some steering and makes the car easier to drive. The MC work in a similar fashion but I found the clay compound sometimes has more bite in certain conditions or when the track is wet, especially if using sauce. And the M4 being a softer than the clay sometimes can't attack the surface as well as clay in the wet cause the tread is just too soft.

But I guess tire choice comes down to more personal preference.
I have been going back and forth between 37.5 and 40 with the dark blue fronts light blue rears and 32.5wt. Same pistons. I haven't had the pleasure running on medium to high bit with this car yet(I ran my sct and hate it LOL) We have a low to almost low-medium grip. Basically hard packed with groove...outdoor track with out the loam. I was using Clay electrons fronts and super soft electron rears. I have SS dirtweb fronts and SS rears. When I use the clay tire and 40 wt it pushes and I steer more with the rear end. BUT if I use the SS it has wayyyy too much turn in and I'm all over the place. This is with the 17 castor blocks. I just bough the 21's but had to left sides. I just got the right side and will be hopefully testing it this weekend.

Developed some slop in my v4 recently. Was surprised to see this when I took it apart. Lost a couple of teeth from my Servo's main gear too..

Haha..probably plenty of them...Still was surprised to see it as I thought the v4 was a stronger part. A cheap fix and parts in-stock

I did the dex410 steering mod on my DESC410 and that truck saw some crashes. Only damage that it had was the bottom screw got cross threaded and bent on the steering post. Had to use a bench vice to get it out. It was the orange colored part though.

Try M4 Electrons rear and Transistors up front. Transistors are more progressive steering, or you can even use scrubs up front. (M3 or X3 or X3 compounds). You can experiment which compound suits your style. There is a big difference in compounds for clay. Try one step up. M3 or X2.

Hi guys. Which JConcepts Bullet wheel would be the best fit for DEX410?

I am using the RSX right now, but I haven't had a chance to use it. I was using the RS Pro and it had plenty for a 7.5.

I don't think any of them will unless you convert from 14mm to 12mm hex drives
