As soon as I put the aluminum Servo Saver on I stripped out the servo arm. Makes that the next weakest link. Put on the aluminum servo arm and haven't had a problem yet.

Now is there a "next" weak link? I honestly don't think so. The linkage is solid now and the servo saver can still do its job like its supposed to do. I run a servo that is up to the task of an 1/8th scale buggy (ACE1015) so I really do not worry about being able to handle a solid linkage.
im pretty sure that servo still has one gear that isnt metal. not 100% on that (i think ive read that somewhere before) . its a very good servo though, i have one in my rc8.

The shocks on the SC look a bit different than the dex410's. Do you guys think that TD might replace the shocks to what the SC is using? "Fat shock technology?"

If you look at them on the SC... They are Big Bores. That will be an option for us soon

I wonder how they are going to "offset" them to get them to work so they don't hit the camber links?

My thoughts exactly! They would have to offset the fronts to keep them out of the drive shaft as well. Would this car benefit from big bore shocks?

I would imagine longer standoffs

Of course you silly goose! Now I might be getting silly here myself but would this not change the suspension geometry to something other than how it was designed?

^^Probably and you'd only need longer shock mounts/arm in the front. The rear should work just fine.

I have big bores on the Cougar and if Durango comes out with a shock update kit I will definately take a set. That way I could almost build a spare Durango out of my spare parts stock.

That's what I was thinking too.

Are the stock shocks not capable enough already? Will it add more unnecessary weight to the buggy?

Once you go big bores you don't go back. I would definately get them.

Instead of offsetting the front it would be nice if the moved the front diff back and "straightened" out the CVD's instead. Shocks stay in the same place, a little less weight up front, and better CVD alignment. This would probably be too costly though, but a nice idea

Glad to hear the aluminum part is working so well. It's probably just heavy steering (like 4wd 8ths) on a 2wd, no-front wheel power, buggy level part. That's an easy fix if the part was more available.

Default DEX410R indoor carpet set-up

Hello all.

After following this thread some time I just recently got hold of a nearly unused DEX410R with a complete spare car (still in parts) and a lot of option alu parts.

The plan is to use it at the local indoor carpet track during the winter season. The track is semi technical with one ~20m straight that ends in a long sweeping 180 deg curve (total length of track is apx. 100m or so).

I wonder if you guys could point me in the direction of some good set-ups for carpet.

What tires and foam inserts are you guys using on carpet? I have seen Schumacher "Mini Pin" in "yellow" on some set-up sheets.

Regards Ronny

Recommend checking the Team Durango website "in the pits" team setups for Europe. I think I saw some astroturf setups posted on there. Wish you the best.

I am building my 410R kit now but ran into a little problem. I bought the aluminum front arm mounts and steel inserts. The steel inserts are not fitting into the arm mounts deep enough it seems. I can't even use a single aluminum gold spacer (.5mm), when I do the arms bind so bad it is tough to move them up and down. Thanks in advance for the help.

you should have no issues with binding what so ever. I built mine and everything was free. The front alloy arm mounts take a small black concave bushing inside to where the hinge pin seats, you need to make sure they are seated all the way in. On my car they actually sit in lose.






HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
