Not sure...they haven't leaked yet. Think I have three or four race nights on them now...

Are the P-5 rings the same size as the Durango rings? I can't find them in stock, so I'm checking out Mcmaster-Carr for alternatives. Anybody have the measurements on P-5 o-rings (Kyosho or Durango)?

They have a material called "Buna-N," which is supposed to offer superior oil resistance, they also have o-rings with a durometer rating of 70 (might be softer).

I just got one of these. I bought the 410r and upgraded only a couple things like front hub carriers, servo mount and added the graphite rear brace to replace the stock plastic.
I am sure there are tons of set ups in this thread but I want to know a great start point with a Tekin 6.5 I assume probably near 23 pinion to stock spur. I set mine up with Associated 30wt front and rear with stock springs , 7000 front and 2000 rear diff fluid on medium grip clay. Any ideas or better set ups any of you trying?

Did you upgrade the front arm mounts? That is a must have. Also dont even bother trying to run a 23 tooth with any brand 6.5 replace it with something smaller (20 tooth) or you will overheat very quickly. Enjoy

I was basing the 23 tooth pinion on Randy Pikes suggestion to my buddy with the same car. He was running a 20 or 21 tooth but was told he is undergeared and that's why he is overheating and thermalling.
His car isn't making it past 3 minutes and he thermals out.
The front braces make a lot of sense so I will get those.
I have installed a fan behind the esc beside the spur gear (fan shroud is trimmed away to fit under spur) and the air is drawn over the esc towards the back. I am thinking with the limited space under the body and how tight things are this should creat air flow and eliminate some heat issues when weather gets warmer.
Is anyone else having major overheating issues or is there something to look for to stop it from happening that is build related?

If you build the car correctly with the proper shimming you wont have heating issues. I have never seen my motor get over 140. Just make sure you have the vents cut out.

make sure you have a little vent on the side of the body that directs airflow to the esc.

that will help.

also make sure your entire drive chain is smooth.. especially since the car is diff-geared.

We run hotter motors like 6.5 here but the motor is not whats getting hot or I would agree with geared to high. The esc is overheating.
I may have it licked on mine but he cant fit a fan as I have.

Whats the verdict on rear sway bars?

I need a little more rear grip, I'm running the lightest sway bar, should I ditch it?

ditch the sway bar. run lighter springs than what came on the kit. im running grey. black associated springs worked pretty well too. i just got the light green in the mail, but havent tried them yet. i have my shocks layed down. inside on tower and outside on arm. my turnbuckle is inside lowest hole on the tower, and outside on the rear hub. im using offset jconcepts ball cups on the rear hubs to maintain droop. im running just shy of full droop. the wheels are almost touching the offset ballcup when car is lifted off the ground. hope this helps. oh ya 1.5* rear hubs, MAKE SURE YOU MOUNT THEM L & R WHEN VIEWED FROM THE FRONT OF THE CAR OR THEY WILL BE 1.5* TOED OUT. try this and you will have all the rear grip you need. i actually run less "hooked up" tires on the rear. i like to ride the slide w/ a 4wd.

Guys I'd like to see your esc settings if you're thermalling the RS Pro.

I've been running a 6.5 in mine all day long and not getting that hot.
