FYI - I'm selling my DEX410R. I'm going to miss it but I'm running all Kyosho stuff now so there's no point in keeping it. It's only been run a few times and is nearly brand new.

Do you guys have a better solution than this?
this might help you solved your problem as well You can get it locally as well.

Default Two questions

I also own a DESC410R so I'm very familiar with building & shimming the durango diffs as well as making sure the input gear and yokes have no play.

So I buy a used DEX410R from a member on here who I shall leave un-named. The buggy looked great on the outside, but upon inspecting the rear diff the big gear on the diff was shredded with several missing teeth and many half ground down. The inside of the gear case looked like gold sludge. There was a ton of axial play on the input shaft/gear which is the likely culprit. I should leave the guy negative feedback because the damage wasn't in the description. I suppose it serves me right because I PM'd him with questions and got no response but I bought the car anyway. A relatively cheap fix and I happened to have a complete spare diff laying in my toolbox for the DESC410R.

However, no matter what combination of shims I try I can't get the rear diff to be silent and completely smooth. The input gear doesn't "look" worn, but could it be worn given how bad the diff gear was shredded? Should I just buy a new input gear or am I missing another technique?

Secondly I'm looking for recommendations on the smallest best quality ESC they make. Man the real-estate in this buggy is ridiculously small. I tried to install a spare Novak GTB and Spektrum gray case Rx and while I can get the electronics to fit in the chassis, they're just too tall to get the body on the car. The only way I could fit the Spektrum gray box Rx was to stand it on end, but between the wires & big azzed capacitor on the GTB and the receiver standing on end, the body just won't fit. I'm stuck with Spektrum so I know I need to get an SR3500 micro receiver, but what ESC will work and fit the best? Tekin RS Pro, LRP, etc.?

Thanks in advance . . . Matt

Replace the gear and also pick up a few spare gear box cases. When I rebuild my diffs I always switch gear box halfs to get a pair that just fits right. Take your time and make sure everything is within a good tolerance as far as free play, etc. It takes a little more time but to this day I've never had a chipped ring gear or any real diff problems. Just rutine maintenance to freshen them up every couple of weeks.

The Tresrey Gainabull bodies provide more room for bigger ESC's. I've ran the LRP TC Spec before the Tresrey ESC's were released. I think your better off getting the smallest spectrum reciever and just take your time to make your install nice and tidy

I hate to toot my own horn here, but I think I have one of the cleanest setups you can put together.



A Castle Mamba Max and 5700 motor with a Spektrum 3520 receiver and a standard AMB transponder that got too much abuse in a nitro car and had the mounting tabs cut off. You could also get even more space by using one of the modern little transponders. Most importantly, ditch the plastic plate that you're supposed to mount everything to. Its impossible to mount stuff nicely to that plate, and it buckles. The body fits over beautifully and does not contact a single piece of wiring or electronics.
Although I haven't tried to fit one yet, I'm certain I can mount a fan to the heatsink on the ESC and still clear everything. Theres still about 4mm between the ESC and the motor, and I left that space intentionally to fit a fan in the future.

now .. that's REALLY neat! i like it
where do you hide all the wires - servo, speedie, transponder?

wease - i've got an RSPro with a grey spektrum RX, like yourself. speedie fits easily, RX not and just like you said, it's standing on its end. that's why an SR3500 is on its way
