Thanks Dino that was prettying what's thinking was. My car is awsome as is but I know that it could be better. Maby if I sell my backup 410 might give the u joints and 21s a go. The $120 on parts would be a tough one to swallow and imo a little crazy on durango. Would love to have those parts but $20 for a single c hub is pushing it a little to far for me personally.

That is why it is best to just get the rear uj's only. When I put the front uj's on without the 21* hubs, it was pretty rough to say the least.

Anybody else bend their chassis so the front center drive shaft doesn't pop out?

That's exactly what I was saying. If you need more side bite and grip, try the rear UJ only.

Now that I have both front and rear u joints and the 21* hubs, I think it handles better now than ever before. But it was a mess without the hubs!

Those that have converted to 12mm hexs using D413 parts.... What type front wheels are you using? (TLR, KYO, etc.)

Also has anyone tried the exotek 12mm hex conversion? Same question with wheels, and how do you like the exotek conversion?

Im wanting to either use the AVID d413 hexs or the exotek hexs to convert to 12mm. Just looking for some opinions on these two options.

I'm using the Exotek's on the rear so i can swap wheels with my 2WD (RB6 or KF).
But fronts, as I don't have other cars to (care about) swapping the wheels with, I stuck with the 14mm hexes.

I am running the exotek 12mm conversion to take advantage of using the newer 2.4 rims. Currently I run the Associated standard or the newer 61mm rims.

I haven't measured the AKA Evo rims for the associated, but I find that the offset on the rear Proline VTR 2.4 slightly narrower than the associated rims but not by much. You can probably use 0.5mm or even 1mm wheel spacers to adjust it anyways.

Associated
ASC91575 (61mm 4wd FR)
ASC91571 (61mm RR)


Proline VTR 2.4
PRO275202 (B44.3 4WD FR)
PRO274902 (RR RB6, B5, B5M)

Did really well tonight pulling in a second place in the main. I am still having problems with the cup, so I will be using captured turn buckles on it, and eliminate that problem. I also had a problem with the front center drive shaft popping out, this is getting old to say the least. If I install the front uj, will this fix the problem, or is there some other way?

If you're continuously popping out the front drive shaft, I would check that the front top deck is in good condition, the posts are tight and that the screw holes in the front bulkheads where the top deck connects aren't stripped.

There have been others complaining about this. Will the front center U joint help this problem?

I found a loose post that may be the problem with the center drive shaft popping out. I captured the steering turnbuckles with Traxxas turnbuckles, and they look so beefy, and very smooth. I raced my Desc410 with them and am sold! I had absolutely no problems. I will be out of action for two weeks as I have a wedding in Florida to attend. I also need to catch up on some sorely needed maintenance as well, like replacing the diff seals with the better ones. I forgot to add that she is handling so sweet, as I was able to be very consistent.
