Servo saver- yeah or nay?
Hello MikeR,

Did you allready decide, witch version you want to produce for the steering rack, and/or witch other parts could we see in the future from exotek?

Make it so that it uses the original servo saver so it won't cost more.

Additionally something this buggy could use are new front arms that make it so the bottoms of the front shocks are captured and therefore protected. Outside of that the 410 is pretty well refined.

Soldering is soldering.

If you take the time to plan it out and KNOW how to solder properly, it should be easy peazy.
I've soldered several types of ESC's over the years and they always look like factory. You just need to know how to pre-tin your exposed leads (you want just the minimum amount of wire exposed - usually just over 1/16") and use a sparing amount flux on the contact point so it build heat quickly and efficiently to provide the perfect solder joint.

The Dex410 is ready to go again. I am running a Tekin 7.5 and RS Pro in it. I just need to get the tires for it, thanks Dino D.

I just had a look at the TD web site and i saw, that also the DEX410v4 will be no longer manufactured!

So the release of the V5 is close... ;o)

I finally finished my Dex410 for the race sat. I had a lot of issues to fix, space being one of them, this thing is tight.

The car handled great, but electrical issues kicked my butt all night. I was doing great, and then a motor wire came loose, ughh! Then in the main, second lap, another motor wire comes loose, it happens.

That's a bumber man, nothing worse then small issues becoming big ones!

If anyone is interested I'll be doing a set up sheet for the V4 for high bite clay tonight. I'll post it on Team Durango - RC Cars page on facebook. I've tried to post them on here but the files are to big. I had some great results with my car last weekend at our state champs race. I have to say, the V5 is going to have to be an amazing car for me to completely retire the V4.

Hi Guys,

Need a favour - I race 4wd stock 17.5t in Australia its a reasonably popular class here. So weight is important. To compare the 4wd's on the market;

Could someone weigh there car - ideally as close to stock as possible with electronics and a shorty and body on.

Would be much appreciated? There is no prize for anyone who can post a reply the fastest. Thanks.

Stock weight is around 1840 RTR using a typical pair of saddles, nothing done to reduce weight.. in fact weight added on the rear So maybe 1800 w/o weights

Hi Mate, I have the V4 and in full race trim with regular shorty it weighs in at 1710 grams. The only thing that I have done to shave a bit of weight off (about 10 grams) is using the skinny shocks (not big bore). I reckon the Dex410 is very under rated when it comes to 17.5! I am planning to purchase the V5 and also a few low profile shorties for even more weight saving!

Replacing driveline pins (bones, cvds, universals?). I found some mention of it but can't fine details. Can anyone provide part #'s or brands for pins that work well?
