I am thinking about running 4 wheel mod this winter and this looks like a good car (I dig that it has gear diffs because i hate rebuilding ball diffs). Looks like graphite shock towers, and a couple aluminum parts(bulkheads and knuckles)
No other cars have gear diffs that I know of

The 410 2010 spec has many alum and ti upgrades on it and Also includes swaybars and boots on the shocks and cvds

The us distributor is HRP. Many shops stock and support the Durango line. Some more than others. :-)

The dex410 r just needs the front aluminum suspension holders to be good to go. We have a couple guys running without ti turnbuckles and they are fine.

They often leak. I have 10k in my front and does not leak but the rear has 5k and leaked all the time. I used Kyosho P5 o-rings as mentioned on this thread and life is better now!

Sweet! I still cannot find those stock replacement washers that sit against the o-rings on the inside of the diffs. I have them back ordered on A-Main though . . .

Default Mysterious servo saver issue solved!

Finally!

So I was out doing some loops at MHOR today and started to go through servo savers again. It really looked like something was chewing into the bottom servo saver arm. We have seen this before but chalked it up to the knurled aluminum nut on the bottom of the servo saver doing work after the plastic piece let go.

Turns out the top, right screw that mounts the servo was sticking through enough to gouge the servo saver and wear it thinner than it already is! I felt like a tard for not noticing this earlier but I can be clueless at times.

Life is good with this issue solved and diffs that are not leaking!!!

Also I was reading all you need is green springs, is it still good to get the spring kit?

And what about the lipo weights? would it be good to get those too?

im running the kit springs up front. associated black springs worked in back pretty well. but i ordered grey for the rear. the greys are much softer. i bought the skid plate weight, but i have 4 pieces of lead zip tied to the bottom where the other brass weights go. 2 per side. kind of hokey but you really cant see 'em anyhow, and they work. one track i run is hard packed clay on slicks. the other is hard packed top soil on hot bodies pinks. both tracks are high bite. hope this helps.

It was driving me nuts and wanted to throw the car in the trash a couple of times but knew it had to be something that I was doing wrong. The instructions say to use the M3 x 6mm SHCS but must have been using the 8mm screws or something. The car is packaged so tight there is not room for much error (if any at all)!
