I don't need a bullet ride, just a good medium happy between speed, torque and runtime as it will be used at club level only once in a while but mainly on our track which is where my son practices.


I use 24/87 With a 7.5 , 5135kv motor. Never too warm

So if I run the 10.5 4 pole, and run 23/87 I should be about where I need to be, I have pinions from 16 to 25 or 27.

You're partially correct...center diff isn't the same and spur pitch is different.... Good luck just make sure the slipper is set or it will fry the spur.... Only know from experience... Lol

Default diff swap

Will the diffs from a v3 fit an original 410?

There is no way I would put a 4 pole in this. I had a 5 turn in it, and it was wild, totally insane. A 7.5 is plenty for just about anything. The Desc410 is way more robust, the diffs are larger, and I really like the Mod 1 spurs, last a long time in it. Where do I get the parts to put a Mod 1 in the Dex 410?

Yes, they haven't changed between models.

I keep blowing out the rear ring gear. Usually a tooth will blow out. I have read to shim the diff. Which is probably the issue. My question is how tight? If I add a copper shim there is very play but not binding. Less play than before I shimmer it. I did read the durango diff build but it really doesn't say. New to shimming diffs.

Have you tried running the Machine cut Ring gear ?

I've not heard of this since the old batch of v2 gears that were bad (and TD sent out free replacements)..

I've never shimmed my diffs beyond the stock setup.

Front and Rear diffs in DESC410 are same as DEX410. Only center spur was mod 1 (though it came with a 48p spur too). You could try the mod 1 spur as the slipper pads I think are same size, but why would you want to ? You would have very limited gearing possibilities ...

I had read to shim and when I tried it,it was a little tighter with no binding. I didn't want to drop double the money if they keep chipping teeth.

I never had that issue. Are you sure your slipper isn't set too tight? Normally you want to be on the 3rd or 4th line on the slipper setting, which will be more forgiving on your transmission.

I'm sure it's tighter than it should be. Like the post above, I was having slipper issues melting spur, stripping spur, so I tightened down. It still slips just takes a bit of force. I'll check it and make an adjustmet. Ty

So I bought a diff kit. Shims, gears, diff cup. I was wondering why there were 2 different color shims. I read the manual.....the original diff was built wrong. Box shim is one silver and one copper. Now it's correct. That may have been the issue as it feels the same as the old diff when I added a copper shim! Question is to break in the diff? Run some practice or a Qual and pull apart and clean it? 2 quals and then clean it?

Tobameister or EKT, I recognize you guys as old timers here in the DEX410 forum. I want to get my buggy running again and had a few questions on current setups. I have original caster blocks, what degree are they and do you recommend the newer ones? whats a good base setups with the newer type B Pistons. I run on medium grip smooth indoor dirt. Cant wait to get back to the track this winter, thx.
