NORM- First things first your gonna have to cute the vents out in the body, and after that if its still shutting down do to over heating and ur gearing is spot on, u need a fan. The reason why I didnt get a tekin speedo cuz none come with a fan, and in this application where high output motors are being run a fan is a must. I run a 5.0T in mine geared 18/87 and I have a fan for speedo and never shuts down... I can cook eggs on the chassis after a 8min man but my temp is 130 on speedo and 150 on motor

Kewl. And the part itself is JPY1,260 which, to me, is a reasonable $15.50 a piece. Once I get the green light I will place the order for a few . . .

I run a RS Pro 7.5 in my Rango and no heating issues at all . Tekins don`t need fans due to the better technology they have . A few guys at the track run 6.5 with no issues .

Norm , what are your settings on the ESC and timing on the motor ? You should be geared 18-19 depending on the track and how much timing you have and boost .

just adding shims on either the left or right side of the diff so you have the correct mesh with the pinion/idler gear.

in the instructions there is a gold shim (0.01) on one side, and silver shim (0.02) on the other.

you may need to move both to one side depending on the mesh, or you may need to add another shim if its too loose (to make side slop)

i also shim the outdrives aswell, im not sure if anyone else is doing it besides me.

anyway i just ordered a full set of bearings + some spares.

What are you running for gearing? I am throwing a 7.5 in mine, where everyone else is running 10.5...

Default RE question about the 2011 dex410

Hey I know sounded like a stupid question. But I really would after spending so much like to have the lastest one for a good while. It's seems to me that trying to sell a 2010 spec car in 2011 is going to be a bit of a marketing issue and maybe that might compell them to offer some quick updates and call it a 2011 spec Dex410. Any thoughts on that?

They could redesign it for lipo or add the transpondermount.

My setup is identical to this (not my pic). I use this fan. I'm running an RS Pro/Redline 7.5 geared at 22/87. Speedo doesn't get over 3 lights and motor stays below 140.

I'm running in "Stock" mode, so no added timing and I believe the motor is at 12* advanced.

Well guys my shipment took around 4 days to get to the US after receiving my shipping notice.

Yes they will ship to the US. The parts are amazing in fit and finish, you will not be dissapointed.

If your Tekin RS Pro is overheating the first thing to look at is the cap and your setup. As long as you're cap is installed the setup may be off. Try my 6.5 setup posted on the website.

Nice, clean setup.

How did you mount the fan?

How did you route the long sensor wire?

I have a short TQ sensor wire, that fits perfectly.

I have servo tape holding the fan down, but I'll probably use shoegoo once it fails.
