So I ran the 410R at the opening weekend at 204Raceway and had a blast. What a missile! The track is primarily a 1/8 track so it has crazy MX jumps. Needless to say, the combination of crazy speed, nutty jumps and very rusty driving resulted in a broken, plastic rear shock tower. I have put a CF tower on the front but Amain is always out of stock on the rear CF tower. What other sellers have a good stock of 410 parts?

Also, I have been reading about various ways to run 12mm hexes - can someone please summarise for me? I want to run 12mm on all my buggies so I can swap around wheels.

Thanks!

Exotek makes 12mm hexes, that's the easiest way to do it.

Installed the universals on both front and rear. Already had them in the center. Like a whole different car! No heat, no binding. Acts differently. I do have to back and tweak it again as it now pushes on power. Off power steering is good. Doesn't over rotate squares up nicely On power.

Gents / Ladies,

What do you think is a fair price to put up my durango lot for? I have a dex410v4(2/3 of winter used), dex410v3 (used for about 8 months indoor only), 95% of a new v3 unbuilt(used as a parts resource) and a handful of clay tires)

Hop ups include
rear aluminum gear inserts
Rear weight set (3pc)
Aluminum Servo Saver arm
Aluminum servo mount
Aluminum spacers
Exotek Aluminum rear hubs (stuck bearing case in one) Im sure with some patience it can be removed.

Did you also install the 21* hubs as well? I did but haven't had a chance to use them.

Just fit the rear center universal to my 410R and the universal is hitting the battery strap. Being such an old model I am assuming the battery strap has undergone a running change to clear the uni.

You'll want the type B battery strap, TD320244.

Or just dremel it out, just compare pics to see what you need to trim, it's pretty easy

I had to trim mine as well. Basically just the center that is right under the uni joint. I have the v3. I cut mine out no issues.


Plangoff.....yes I did put the 21's on. It's better nm but so far I am really liking the universals all the way around.

Finally got a chance to run the car with the 21* hubs. I really like them a lot, and it handles great, a lot of confidence. After a few laps I was in a groove with it. I never expected the 21* hubs to make that much of a difference, but they did.

Default Little help

Let me start by saying I'm new. Please correct me, and fill in the blanks of you will. Ok I pickup up a Dex410 roller. This is the first car I've bought that has the saddle style battery packs. I looks like it takes 2 2 cell lipos. I think the local track has you race in 2 cell lipo. Is that how it's done? Also could, should I run 550 can in a 4x4 buggy. Thanks in advance.

Welcome, saddles are 2x1s=2s so your good, and no on the 550. To big, fast and heavy. Plus I do not think it will fit...Good luck with the new ride!

you run a regular 540 can. Most run a 8.5 - 6.5 turn. There are the superstock classes that rn 13.5 so check with your local track and see what motors they are running.

The saddle packs are sold in pairs. They come as matched 1s cells. They are 1 cell each and when ran in series = 2s together.
