Am I missing any other essentials?


Has anyone tried IP's 5200 45c saddle packs on their 'rango? It has a listed 25mm height but I just want to confirm actual fit before I buy one.

Anyone want to sell me their light green rear springs(TDR330063) and driveshaft wheel axle boot set(TDR310023) that you might have just laying around?
I have a couple new axle boots. PM me and I'll get you taken care of!

Default wheel conversions

figured that the dex410 has been out for a few months that people have had time to examine the axles and wheel choices. I would like to either mount up a set of 17mm buggy wheels or a set of sct (slash 4x4, etc) wheels.

so has anyone done any wheel conversions?

thanks in advance

LOL... Well there's a callout if I've ever seen one!

We've actually got a small group of us that are planning to make a few trips up there soon to prep for the JConcepts race...

I've never done too well at Smac though... I think the narrow lanes compared to what I'm used to running on mess with me.

I definately look forward to coming up soon though... You guys have a heck of a facility up there!

did anyone else grimmace or make a funny face when they read this?

To answer your question, no, only wheels made for 4wd buggies like the kit ones, B44 ones, or XXX4 ones will work.

I think he's talking about the drive pin on the inside ( by the rear diff). My friend has been also having issues with this too. The pin seems to walk out and depending which diff outdrive you have it will cause that wheel to bind up. He's going to upgrade to 2mm stuff.

i hit the reply tab but thought we were all noobs once and didnt want to be a d!ck to someone who is just starting in the hobby. if your still on here guy by a slash 4wd if you want to get your feet wet w/ a 4wd, its MUCH cheaper and you wont feel as bad when you rip a wheel off while your still getting up to speed.

No worries guys. Not a complete newbie just a newbie to 4wd 10th scale buggies. No offense taken. just thought maybe with the desc410 that doing 12mm hex conv might be possible. Def. going to pick up a desc410. Thanks again.

Thank you sir. Will send a pm ASAP.


So has anyone tried the IP(Intellect) 5200 45c saddle pack and does it fit well on the buggy?


Anyone have any light green rear springs they want to sell me?
