I use a Toro ts120, with a 8.5 it was hardly even warm, just the convected heat from the motor I think. Haven't really run it with my 6.5 yet (well, once when over geared, everything was hot and it ran like a champ)

Do you remember what gearing you used with your RS pro/7.5 and what it temped at? Id like to use this setup but at 6 min i think its going to be too hot.

I am looking at the VTX10RBE or the LRP.

Yes Viper 7.5 Black Edition (their 2nd gen motor). I feel the motor runs a little hot compared to my older 1st gen Viper motor. Likely 140-150 after a 6 min Main....I actually mounted a fan on the motor to keep it cooler (using the LRP 82515 motor clamp with a little servo tape to keep it in position).

I've been running my Hobby Wing XERUN-120A V3.1 in both my cars for quite a while now and in my 410 I have it thermal adhesive taped to the chassis. The idea here is that the alum chassis can act as a passive heatsink along with the all alum case of the ESC. I'm also running the HW6.5 XERUN motor. It's VERY fast and I have no boost or turbo. Just really smooth power. I'm geared 21/87. Very solid combo. I'm running my Hirosaka Speed Passion motor in my 2WD and it also works really well with the HobbyWing.

Would most of you agree that the Universals are a good upgrade? I broke one of my CVD axles so I though I might just upgrade the front to universals instead of CVDs. Thanks!

I would say it's a no brainer. No maintenance,less heat, free's up the car,no boots and imo look better.....but that's just me.

Thanks for the tips guys. I think I will order a set of Universals for the front too. I have had the universals in the center for quite some time. Mostly because the dual slipper needs them, the V3 center driveshafts are a little bit shorter and this can cause them to pop out at times.

Are there any rumors of a DEX410v5? I haven't really seen much lately. Haven't really dug around either though.

Thanks!

Dave

No rumors yet, I believe we'll see something with the 2wd trucks and new plastics for the detc first. The v4 is pretty hooked up as is, I bet a new chassis is new to run a shorty if anything

Hi I just wanted to share my experience with racing the v4 this weekend, firstly I run Dino setup as recommended but with a shorty lipo and the rear has always been loose on power regardless of how much weight I added to the rear so yesterday while I had the setup wheels on I decided to check the rear toe in settings with the 1deg hubs and it was actually 4.5deg so after some research it seems that too much toe in can cause the back end to wash out so I installed the stock hubs on and it gives me 3.5deg which is what most other wheelers were running anyway and I could not believe how much better the car drove the rear was planted and the car was now pushing because of all the changes I made getting the rear to stick and as I reversed those changes one by one the car got better and lap times got faster so in conclusion I suggest you use the 0deg hubs.

The V4 is awesome. I still drool over the D413, partially because of the saddle AND shorty possibilities but the V4 is still really awesome. The last few months with it have been amazing. I rotate between several hot tracks here in Southern California, OCRC, SCRVC, and LRH and it's solid performer on all of the tracks with minimal changes. Granted these tracks are all VERY similar in that they are indoor clay with medium to high bite. I'll probably end up buying a D413 and building it to compare. I have a feeling I will stay with my 410 though but this way I have a car for my girlfriend to drive too. Still trying to get her racing with me

I love the center mounted saddle pack design of the 410, it's an amazingly narrow car and so far hands down the best 1/10th scale car I've driven. I have not yet driven the Xray or the D413 though. I've driven the LOSI, and Associated models over the years. I love building them and tweaking them just as much as racing them. So I'm always drooling at new upgrades and kits.

Thanks!

I am done with 4x4 buggy, and at a great cost to me. I just don't have the skills to drive one without crashing. I was racing at Thunder Raceway "Winter Nationals" in Nashville, Tn, and they left a spike open on a turn that you face. I wiped out my front graphite tower hitting it, and bent my arm pin. I can destroy stuff on my own, I surely don't need a track to jump on the band wagon as well. I will just race 2wd sct spec and 4x4 sct. To the tracks credit, they fixed the problem after I informed them what happened. I just don't plan on returning to soon. After this experience, I am going to take a hard look at my involvement in RC.

Usually if you keep crashing it's because your overpowered try running a 8.5-10.5 it wil keep up in the infield without you crashing alot and add turbo to keep up on the straight
