haven't even built the car yet, having never run this class before was just making sure 4500 would be enough and that a rs would not get too hot, can't wait to get it on track!

Default Missing shim

I have started building a new dex410 kit 2010 spec (gift to myself...) and I am missing two of the shims for the gear diff. Bag b had 2 out of the 4 of them. The simple solution would be to just buy some. The part number is 709001. The not so simple problem is that the instruction manual indicates that this shim is a 5X10X.8 mm shim and the corresponding replacement part that matches the part number (listed in the instruction manual - 709001) is a 5X10X.5 mm shim. AH! now what? I called the website that I purchased it from and got transferred to someone else who had trouble talking but managed to say he would call me back..... no call..... I feel like my only option is to take my caliper, go to the hardware store and find a 5X10X.8 mm shim. I just have to disassemble the other diff to make sure that the washer is indeed .8mm thick and not .5...... though I have my doubts that .3 mm is going to make a huge difference. Anybody have a similar experience or some suggestions?

Recap:

Missing X2 part number 709001 from bag b of dex410 2010 spec kit.
Kit instructions indicate 5X10X.8 mm shim
corresponding part number from online distributor indicates 5X10X.5 mm shim
what to do, who to contact?

Well, you say Tekin goes thermal if not seti n the car.

All speedo's will thermal if you do not gear or set it up properly. That is not a TEKIN problem. That is a user error problem.

I am not saying LRP is bad. They arent. BUT-you cannot just throw that out without knowing the whole story.



An LRP Will be fine. I prefer Tekin. And in this car, space is a precious commodity

Esc thermals can be caused by a number of factors. Some of which are not in Tekin's control.

That being said Ryan Lutz drove his Team Durango with a 6.5 and RS Pro setup until the batteries dumped(about 10 minutes). Ryan was using my 6.5 setup on a typical indoor track with very limited traction. So in typical Ryan Lutz form this mean wheel spin all over the track.

If anyone is having heat issues with their Tekin setup shoot me the esc settings,gearing and track info and I'll get you sorted out.

If you're not careful, you can make any esc thermal with a 6.5, or any motor. If your friends are having trouble thermaling their esc's, they need to double check their setups/installs, etc. My RS Pro/Redline 6.5 is rock solid.

+1

Everyone is in a hurry to blame the manufacture when many times the issue is user error .
