Cant wait to get back to the track this winter, thx.
The v3 caster blocks are 17 degrees, some people go for the 19 or 21 blocks for less aggressive steering.

Dino's setup is a popular starting point http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...Raceway201406/

Yeah I've switched to the 21's which I felt take additional 'aggressive' steering out of the car on my specific club track/surface . If anything grab some 19s and see how you like them, feels like a safe bet than going right to 21s.

I just built a new v4 this past weekend. Feels like putting on comfortable shoes Getting ready for 1/10th indoor season and looking forward to wheeling this thing again (once the big toys go back on the shelf...).

pretty excited! Just ordered up my DEX410v4! Hope to get it on a track in the next week or two. The only other 4wd buggy I've driven was my B44.3 last winter.

Anyone driven both and can give me a comparison?

i have been fortunate enough to drive both the b44.3 and the dex410v4. i must say the durango with the weight in the rear did rotate very well in corners and was very controllable in jump situations.....

i ran with and without the sway bars and the car just works real well.....

dont get me wrong, theyre both top notch buggies, but the dex410v4 is great out of the box....

I know lol, i'm just being an a$$. I try not to judge like that....

You can't argue with B44 results, look at Cav at the Roar Nats!


I tell you what was tough, seeing Neumann coming real close to winning the EFRA 1/10th 4WD Nationals two weeks ago...Not seeing a DEX410 on the podium is a pi$$er...

Ha ha! I pretty excited to get it. Should be here tomorrow. How long would you say the total build takes? Not including painting the body and gluing tires.

Shouldn't take more than an evening. Check out my build guide, so you have an idea of what to expect http://durangofansite.com/main.php?v...ld&buildpage=1

NEW DEX 410 V4 owner needs advise on what option parts I should consider.

I will be running mainly on 2 outdoor tracks. One being medium sized, very very hard packed dirt; low bite due to dust. The other is very large with large jumps hard packed some areas to loose and loamy in others.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Best,

Best,
21 degree front castor blocks are a must. Along with the rear weight set and aluminum servo horn and lower saver. Good luck!!
