Side not regarding above post.

Looked at another club racers Durango.

His was wobbling as well putting wear on his rear drive shaft pin but not to the extent that mine was.

2 Durangos, with the same problem.

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.
When will these be available and do they use the same shock shafts? Thanks...

Hi,

I am looking for a smaller spur for the durango, just wondering what others are using. I tried a schumacher spur with there slipper pads but then the spur and bearings wouldn't slide into its correct position.

Please help.

Thanks

Luke

Finally ran the buggy for the first time on Saturday with grapejuice's setup. I need more drive time but I'm very impressed on how it well it handles. Very,very niiiice! I just need a bit more off power steering in tight corners. What subtle changes can I make in that regard?

Default DEX410 caster and other tuning options

I recently installed the Tresrey front hubs and with the optional spacers they have available you can space the hub further up the kingpin (theres actually 3 settings available with these spacers... all the way down like stock, in the middle or all the way up). I'm trying to understand how this has an effect on handling. I assume it has some effect on caster, but static caster is not changed. Anybody care to explain?

Also, would someone care to explain what effect different weight diff fluids have on handling?

I am trying out a sway bar on the front. The only part i don't see how to tighten is the screws that go into the a arm. The balls in the ends of the links you can't get a allen wrench in their to tighten them anyone know how to do this.

A little help here guys please, I just bought the TD 1/10 2010 spec buggy. What do I need for spare parts, I've been racing on road TC for the past few years so I'm not a total newbie but, I'm probably gonna break some stuff. Just don't wanna buy a bunch of parts I won't need. Any help would be great!

If you got the spec kit..

Front and rear arms, servo saver, diff hoop, ring gears, front and rear bulkheads, top plate and maybe some rear hubs.

It seems like when I break something, it's not something I've broken before.

Wear items are the dust boots on the shocks and driveshafts, I keep an extra set on hand, they last pretty well actually.

Default SC AR bars same as buggy ?

I'm new to SC but have heard a few testimonials about the benefits of installing anti-roll bars front and rear on SC. I'm planning to use the NIP ones that came in the DEX410 '09 kit - the buggy never seemed to call out for them. Just wondering if the AR bars are interchangeable between the SC and buggy ?


Will try the stiff ones.

The 1.5mm roll bars came in the 410 kit, and these or the thicker optional 2mm bars are the ones you'd use on the SC. There's not an SC-specific kit out yet but it's something we're looking into.
