Sorry , but that statement is

My DEX410r has not had any issues at all and I`ve had it since the fall racing twice a week . I`ve had my DESC410r for a few weeks and so far it has been awesome !

My 410 spec has over 10 hours of run time, yes 10 hours, and the drive train is still all original, yes I broken control arms pins, destroyed spurs, but original drive train. I do take it apart after every run, re shim and fill the diffs, clean the cvd's and use o'donnel wax lube on all my cvd's before it goes down on the track, the problem with the diff ring gear is most people crank the slipper to much on high traction surfaces and/or do not shim the diff properly, this diffs have to be shimmed the same way you shim an 1/8 scale buggy. Just look at the losi 2.0's or any other car, if the rear diff isn't properly shimmed it will go.
Gear diffs require less maintenance than ball diffs, but are built different and for someone not familiar with them, they can be a beatch.....

Yeah, you are a tool bag. Have fun driving your 10-year old technology around the track looking like some kinda weird land crab .

The DEX is more durable than that POS HotBodies VE8 I bought last year.

If I raced with you and your perfect 44, I would put you in the wall every chance I got just to watch you go replace your whole front end. Just to be a prick.

Go talk to the guys in the 44 tread and tell them how good your car is. I'm sure most of those guys would like to hear something positive about that car. Even if it is a lie!

Grapejuice, how is the Tresrey diff loop working out? Did it slip right on? I'm running my slipper on the loose side to avoid breaking any more. And any news on improved slippers plates? Like some others mine came warped from the factory. Tx.

+1 and can you still pull the diffs strait out of the car w/o loosening the loop? the stockers seem to flex a little to help pull the diff assembly out. thanks in advance.

Thumbs up Diff case mods

I made some mods that make life a bit easier.
I covered the center CVD's with used driveshaft boots (TD310023) to decrease wear from dust/dirt. Also, I use 2 set screws on all of the 2mm drive pins.
Added longer screws with locknuts on the outer diff cases.
And, to make greasing the pinion and ring gears super easy, I drilled a small hole in the top half of the cases, and sealed the holes with a small screw. While in the car, the screw can removed to inject gear grease with a small syringe, which also helps to measure the amount of grease used. I've been using these mods for months with no toasted diff gears. As a matter of fact, I sometimes swap the front and rear diffs to get a little more usage from them since they drive against opposite sides of the teeth.
