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
Spring sets aren't that expensive and there's no word yet about the big bores and when they'll be available. If I were u I'd get the spring sets as they're a useful tuning aid. On that track I would def run the proline calibers though. I have a set for out doors and lemme tell u they find grip when there Is none. As for a setup I think its best to drive and test. I don't believe in copying peoples setups as every1 is at different experience levels and all have different driving styles. That's always been my stance on that issue.

Out of curiosity, why are u letting go of the b44.1?

Well I have been running ae since the gold tub car rc10 and ran a bj4 and when ae came out with the b44 I ran that. I know this car like my wife I hope lol and I think it's time to move on. I just hope this is the right car I believe it has the best idea with no ball diffs so that's a plus not that I ever had a problem with mine. At the begging I did but now no prob just have to know how to build them like anything. Do it long enough and u just get good at it and plus we have an 1/8 scale track and I believe this car will be really good on it that track gets really beat up and I believe that the people o. Here r all really great to talk to so that a plus. And when I found out. That ae wheels fit front,rear I was sold I have a to. Of JC wheels rulux ones that was my o my stopper but I understand they fit no prob so I figure what the he'll Im I can make it work I hope

The first time I ever drove the car was on a really blown out beat up track. Loose dirt, only traction when its wet, rocks, sand potoles the works lol. And it took it all in stride. Ran a car with ball diffs on that track previously and it was a nightmare. Also had belts. Total rebuild every time. I like wrenching but I don't like having to buy new diff parts after every other run. Those cars are just not made to do what this one can. I think the rest are good indoors on clay or astro or carpet. But go outside and the game changes dramatically. Nothing beats enclosed gear diffs for the rough stuff.

With that said...welcome to the fam. Now we have to initiate u by jumping u in lol

Default tight diffs

Hi Guys

I just bought a 410R in the spur of the moment, I just started putting it together and when I tighten down the screws to the diffs you cant even turn the outdrives, has anyone had this problem? I made sure everything was seated properly as well. Sorry I didnt read back 30 pages to find an answer. Thanks for the help

The bevel gears are probably not all the way down

Sorry to say but ur gonna have to open up all ur diffs lol. Make sure EVERYTHING. is on properly. E-clips, shims and make sure the top and bottom bevel gears are seated all the way down on the outdrives. Sometimes lightly dremeling each side of the outdrives so that the bevel gears sit better on the outdrives is needed. Try that and if all still goes to the crapper, come back and let us know.

^^We have a WINNER!

Look for a Tresrey USA thread to come up. This is excellent news for Durango owners or anything Tresrey.

We'll also announce our first Tresrey Team Driver as well.
