But it's my second DEX410, and i never broke this part, but since few weeks, i i broke frequently my servo arms and wait to put an xray servo arm.

My setup from the pics work not so bad but the car was hard to drive, front was very light and rear to heavier(oils)

Now, i switched to the Kinwald setup with few changes :

-10k Front - 2k Rear
-22.5wt, Black Springs, 2holes stock piston Front - 27.5 Rear, Green Springs 3holes 1.3mm drilled Rear
- No sway bar at all
- Front 2mm hub link location - hole 5 on shock tower front
- Rear External hub link location - hole 2 on shock tower
- Shock Location front : full internal shock tower, external arm
- Shock location Rear : Full External shock tower, full external arm
3degres Camber front and rear.

The car is loose from the rear, i will put 25wt and mid hole on the rear hub to fix the problem.


Can't tell if you run the full weight kit. If not I would give that a try, it really helps locking the rear in. Also 1* rear hubs and #4 rear pivot block.Good Luck!

After trying the 10k front, 5k rear the car had much more positive traction and did not diff out under hard acceleration than when I ran the lighter fluids 7k-F/3k-R. Car displayed better acceleration throughout, but had twitchyness feel.

This is very good to know cause those are the weights i'll be trying next.

Thats what I've always run. Tried 15k in the front once, not too bad but 10k feels better.

Glad u like it, I also run the side weights not the brass skid plate though. I feel that may be a bit overkill. Car is dialed and stays down. Tires are also a very important, if not the most important, part. For us the durnagos are stuck to the surface with Suburbs. BKs are a lot looser but they would be quicker through the twisty stuff, I personally want a tire with plenty of grip than have to wonder when the tire will give way. Id rather make the tire "feel" looser with some setup adjustments than to change the tires altogether.

We're using the JConcepts Bar Codes (blue) F&R on a smooth hardpacked topsoil/clay mix track. Tried the M3 Holeshots and work great (safe/stable tire) but lost about .5 seconds per lap???probably driver related, lol! On a more (clay) track, guys are recommending the Bar Codes, but to use orange compound up front, which I plan to use at SmacTrac in St. Louis in early Feb. When I raced at TRCR in WA, on a very hard/dry track, the owner recommended the Bar Codes gold compound and worked fantastic. I'd definitely recommend both the Proline Suburbs and JConcepts Bar Codes for being fast tires to run on a smooth track.

Default 410

My new 410R for the Reedy Race. I have my setup sheet from testing with Kinwald Wednesday night. Our track is damp/clay and there was some little tweaks that made a big difference. He was generous with sharing information and let me take his car back to my pit space to go through it...

PM me if you want me to send you the newest BK setup sheet... I tried saving it as an attachment, but I got a message saying it exceeds the limit?

*** Tresrey 30g Traction weight available!!! I have one that has one run on it... $15 (shipped)!!!

Yea I'll be there. Second time racing so hopefully I'll get better this time. I changed a couple of things from last sat so hopefully it'll help. I just wish that pro line would come out with there front foams for the 4wd buggies already.

I ordered a few spares of the Tresrey servo saver. If you need or want one let me know. $18 plus shipping and I should have them this Friday. PM me and I'll get you squared away.

I also have a deal pending on some Azarashi bodies (I've ran one for months and love it). If your're looking for one let me know as I'm getting some pricing sent my way soon on those as well.
