Ok guys I finished the DEX410 2010 spec tonight.... just have to add electronics and paint the body... Was a great build, super quality everywhere.... I ended up breaking the rear circliar housing where the batter pin pushes through... uses quick CA for now... it was almost impossible to get the pin through the top holes....



Front end question

I have some minding in the steering and left arm is binding as well.. I think I will re -do the front end again... do u guys reccomend?

I used B4 turnbuckles, $21 for six.

I keep breaking the servo saver as well. If I have it too tight it destroys servos and if I have it too loose it breaks the servo saver. It seems like I can't win.

How are you breaking the servo saver... put it half way tight, thread lock it, then be done with it....

I just dontsee how...

As for Corey, make sure the steering is tight, then back off half a turn on the nuts that hit the bearings.

make sure your plastic bushings in the arm mounts and the general arm mounts themselves arent tweaked.

Grapejuice, why didnt you race last night?
locknuts on backwards help?

im thinking of making a carbon fibre steering plate..

i find the 410R has too much flex, i wonder if the 410 one has less flex?

also check this out

Danger,

You state you use low profile servos, the question I was asking was if it were possible under stressed conditions that the ackerman hit the bottom of the servo. This pic, although horribly fuzzy illustrates how most servos cannot cause a bind in the steering. I don't know how much different (or low profile) your servos are. Just want to make sure you are not overlooking this as a potential issue.

Ditto, this little rocket is strapped! I actually drive it much harder than my 1/8th scale

I had issues in the building process with the sitting of the front and rear diffs in the bottom cases... the long outdrive side seemed the bearing didnt go far in enough to seat flush with the plastic??? any one experience this???

You talking about the bearing on the case side of the diff? I very lightly filled the case on mine to get the bearing on and didn't run all the shims at the start. Now that it is broke in, I have all the shims on the rear diff and just the silver one on the case side on the front diff....just have to play with it at first.

I see so it takes some playing with... Yea I fixed the rear housing last night.. what i did was shave a lil plastic off the botton ever so gently and slid the bearing as far in as close as I could do the diff gear.... Hopefully doing the same to the front will work and fix the seating issue

Thanks for taking the time to post this! I would have to post a pic of my setup but I have looked and do not believe this issue is possible with my setup. I will look very closely tonight . . .

What is the brand and type of servo? I can get the size and see how that compares the Hitec 7955TG.
