It's best to grease the rods and run them in/out of each ballcup when assembling to ensure they are free and stop them popping off whilst adjusting.
Thank you. So grease the rod ends, but what do you mean by," run them in/out of each ballcup?"

TDR230004 23mm stroke (Standard front DESC410R) (front DEX410/R)
TDR230005 31mm stroke (rear DEX410/R)
TDR230025 29mm stroke (optional long-front DESC410R)
TDR230026 35mm stroke (Standard rear DESC410R)

You might be able to use the longer rear shocks from the DESC410R (35mm) on the rear of the 410 buggies but there might not be enough up-travel. Same with the 29mm SC front shocks on the rear of the 410 buggies, there might not be enough down-travel.

I hope the above 'chart' is explanatory enought though.

Thread the turnbuckle fully in / out when you're assembling the turnbuckles - this just frees them up a little and allows you to adjust them without them wanting to fall off.

Gotcha! Grease 'em then thread them in/out to loosen the plastic a bit to make them easier to adjust.

Yep, I had a ring gear go bad and trying to get the sun gear out it broke in 2. What I did on the new one was lightly file the outdrive where the gear sits and it comes off easy now.

Surprisingly you can usually suspend the crown gear side or turn the moulded casing side upside down and the gears will fall off on their own over the course of a couple of hours or so.
If you have stubborn gears that won't fall off, you can try speed up the process with some WD40 or similar.
There are other things but it's better for us to write a guide than try to explain in a forum post.

One other build question: When installing the rear hubs to the arms, the manual says to file something on the arm or hub but I'm not sure which part it's pointing at. What am I supposed to file?

You don't have to file anything - the arm was revised but the manual not changed.

Yeah everything felt smooth and was wondering what was missing. Thanks for the quick reply.

Yessir! A little bit of black grease makes 'em real nice. Funny thing is that I know to do this but always forget. Not sure what is wrong with me?
