Hi there,
Just picked up a 410R today. Which optional parts will make the most difference for the least bucks? Are the aluminum side rails at $100 a pair really going to make that much of a difference on the car? If so, might as well just get the 410.

Also, what's the biggest size saddle packs that can fit into this buggy? Will a 5200 Reedy fit?

No, don't waste your money on those...car is better with the plastic ones, more flex. Minimum for the 410R is the aluminum front hinge pin brace and pivot balls to use that brace. The rear rear aluminum brace is a good one too and an aluminum servo saver.

Max battery height is 25mm, I have no idea how big the reedy is

thanks for the info. I can use the extra 3 bills towards the new durango sc 4x4.

What size saddle packs are you using? I know the Reedy 4200 s fit but was thinking about a 5200.

I think u should save ur 3 bills and invest in a good motor/esc combo and maybe get ALL the ally hinge braces. Maybe the CF shock towers and some P5 o-rings for the diffs which is a MUST. As well as some spare ring gears in case you got stuck with the old batch that chipped. Another smart investment would be some spare steering uprights and caster blocks and a set of 1* rear hubs or a set of rear hubs in general in case you break them. Extra rear axle wheel pins ...personally Im using milwawkee 1/16th black oxide drill bits since the stock wheel pins are garbage and break very easily if you slightly over tighten a wheel.

Buy a ton of diff oil to experiment with different combos, unless u already have. A spare servo saver set or you can get the tresrey or the other version people are buying on here forgot the brand. People seem to be breaking that piece, I personally havent but after all the incidents I got a spare stock set. Get all the spring combos for tuning and if u still have something left over, the aluminum mid drive gear is also a good buy. Its an aluminum mount that replaces the plastic mount that holds up ur spur assembly. You should also invest in some good bearings. Mine got pretty bad after they got a bit dirty. Get a set of yellow seal bocas or something of higher quality to last you for a long time. Because although some will disagree, I believe the stock bearing to be crap.

make sure to use red loctite on your center drive shaft pins and then use shrink wrap to hold them there. Otherwise you may be in for an explosive treat involving your battery pack

So If I were you Id save that money and make this car as good as possible before you move on tot he SC truck.

I'm running the Team Orion 4500, check the height of the reedy 5200, I think they might be too big.

Default B44.1

Well I'm finally doing it trading a b44.1 for a dex410r with all the updates. I hope I have made the right choice is it better to wait for the big bore shocks, or get all the springs front and rear now. What would be a good setup for a dusty blown out track with not a hole lot of traction we run mainly 1/8 scale on it. Only time traction is really good is when we water it thanks guys hope I fall in luv with this 4 wheeler Thanks James
