Well after running the Durango today I must say I was impressed with how it turns and handles the bumpy stuff, freaking car turns I love it so aggressive yet easy to drive if that makes sense......May a few changes to setup but not many from kit 2010 spec... I did break one thing though and I wish they sold it in alloy, since the plastic is rather cheap... its' the rear O shaped plastic piece where the rear diff pushes through and hold the battery strap at the same time in between 2 gold shims.... Other that that, car seems pretty good. I guess the 4.5 motor was a lil too much torque for that piece thank god for zip ties for now!! ahah

Changes I will make next time are - BK bar all around instead of J-conceps Bar Codes, and perhaps a softer rear spring



PS. the Orion 4500 45c LRP combo speedo and motor where super fast! aha

Kind of a silly question: do standard wheels fit this buggy? ei. can I put JConcepts Rulux wheels or something on this bad boy without some kind of adapter?

I had my first un of my 410 today. I run then the rain came. I found I had way to much steering. Im running dark green springs front,3 hole pistons and 30wt oil. light green rear with 3 holes and 25wt. 50K front and 20K rear.
Using Goose bumps all round. (as I used to with B44) longest length turnbuckles all round, high roll center with 3 deg kick up, 4 deg hubs.
I race on a loose loamy surface. (Ive never used gear diffs before).
What would be a good starting point to dial out some steering.
I found the steering super responsive. and under accelleration the rear wanted to step out.
Also the servo saver came loose after 6 laps. Ive done it up tight now!!!
And im running the full weight set

run the low roll center in the rear and lighten up those diff oils. Most people are running 7-15K in the front and 3-5k in the rear.

I put Grape`s setup on mine and so far I really like it , just had to turn the steering down some . Even when the track dried up last night I couldn`t run full steering , which I would of been pushing with my XX-4 .

Anyone want to buy a XX-4

Move the rear hubs forward, if not already. Made a huge difference in mine.

Servo savers, diff hoops and Hingepin braces are what are in order.
