Thanks! Definitely saved me a few hours.

Really? A blue file folder, huh. Where did you place in the main last night?

I will take a shout at this one . . .

I believe the only con about the Spec kit is that you are paying $650 for a 1/10th scale kit! Aside from that I have heard, and read, a few guys state that the Spec kit is a little too stiff so they often remove the front sway, use the plastic side braces and sometime replace the carbon "U" shaped chassis brace with the plastic.

Now for the "R" kit you will want to immediately buy the aluminum hinge braces for the front. I think that is about it for most. I have upgraded mine to carbon shock towers, aluminum steering plate and aluminum rear diff braces because I think they are cool and not b/c I necessarily need them.

Either kit you buy think seriously about an aluminum servo saver and servo horn--it just might save you some frustration.

I couldn't get my tires to hook at all. I was just skating around, in the way of everyone else. I was just playing around doing tail whips over that sweet triple.

DFL? What is wrong with you son? Were you running the Calibers? Did you clean them between heats?? I am sure any tire would suck on a new track once they fill up with mud. I hate my speedo now but still better than the alternatives . . .

At least my RS-Pro has done me right. Yeah I started with the Calibers. Heat 1-2 they were hooked the 3rd I was all over the place. Seemed like traction is picking up so I put the Bar-codes on for the main. NO DICE

That track is finicky right after a track change

Yeah, I should have never sold my spare. What was I thinking? Anyway, I will take this one and send it out tomorrow. POS! I guess a few of these Kinetics have smoked in recent times at MHOR. Mine, I hear, is the 4th. But yeah, new product woes . . .

I run the Mamba Monster in my 8th and only go through like 3 of those per season. They all have issues. Just like airlines and cell phone companies--they are all equally evil!

Cool Thanks....

Thanks for the advice Dangerwr. I'm obsessed with getting the dex410. Can't wait ...

I bought a MM pro to go in this kit and after about 2hrs, I had to accept the fact that it would not fit in the 410 (or at least with my reciever). Did you get one to fit?

Any way, I am looking at the Tekin combos. Would there be any reason to get the RS "pro" if I am only running a 10.5?
Also, is a 10.5 enough for this buggy? (insert newby comments here).

Default 410 vs 410R

I agree with Danger on the kit recommendations. I also went with the 410R and upgraded the parts I wanted for far less than spending $650 and the car is glued to the track (carbon towers, carbon rear brace, 2x Front & 2x Rear aluminum supension holders, Lunsford Ti turnbuckles, Kyosho P5 O-rings, aluminum servo streering arm, optional springs). Sounds like alot, but actually saves quite a bit of money and results in a fantastic car.

I would say a 10.5 might be a great place to start with this buggy. Are you racing? If so, is a stock or mod class??

I hear the Tekin RS runs very hot in the Durango--I would definitely go with the RS Pro if Tekin is your brand.

A 10.5 with a programable esc will put down serious power, depending on what your racing venue and tracksize are. On a tight track (80 x 40) we are running a 4WD stock class with 13.5t Murfdogg Motor and can consistently put down laptimes within .2-.3 seconds of the 4WD Mod (normally 6.5t to 8.5t). Several guys do run the Tekin RS with tremendous success, but I went on the safe side and purchased the RS Pro in the event I would like to run a low wind motor in the future and not have any heat issues. Hope this helps.
