Well for all that have a loud car and correctly shimmed diffs: I took one extra gold washer (the thinnest one) to get the diff further away from the bevel gear and to my surprise the car was then all of a sudden almost B44 quiet. Try it! You might be surprised I also use a tiny bit of Eureka grease instead of the black one. Great stuff!

@Perez: To get out the diff gear just put it upside down for 15 min, gravity will work for you. Give it a little smack and it will fall out nice and easy

Cheers

Hey all...I just picked up a lightly used DEX410 that came as a BUNCH of NIP parts including a set of Big Bore shocks in addition to the original ones. I'm (slowly) working my way through this thread so I apologize if this particular horse is already beat but is there some "equivalancy" between the original shocks and the big-bores? For example, if I see a setup that used the original shocks, how can I get the big-bores to be equivalent to that setup?

I'm kinda hoping there is a chart or something but even some guidelines on piston/fluid weight/spring changes would be helpful. Thanks in advance for any assistance you could provide!

Cheers,
Mike

Congrats on the find! I run the same rate springs as the O.E. shocks(dark green/F Lt. green/R) but heavier oil. Right now I use the smallest pistons 6x1.2 F/R and losi oil,35F/25R. The rear is border line light. Good luck with the rango........

Thanks for the quick response Bman!

Yea, it was a smoking deal that included everything NIP to build a 2010 spec car + a bunch of spares + battery + full ceramic bearing kit + NIP Tersery FR/RR hubs/servo saver/driveshafts/weights/Gainabull body . I suspect I'll be asking more (stupid) questions as I get further into the build but I'm assuming key points are as follows:

Proper shimming of diffs
Kyosho P5 o-rings on outdrives
Proper installation of pinion gears into diff cases
Build driveshafts with red locktite and either pin retainers or shrink tubing
Alloy steering arms/servo saver

I'm REALLY stoked to get this thing built and out on the track!

Cheers,
Mike

Depends on the traction level of your track. For higher bite tracks you go higher and looser go lighter. I settled on 7/3 for a medium loose track.

I also meant the gear attached to the outdrive, have you tried what I said? Put some oil in it, spin for a few times, then turn it upside down and wait....

Perez if you built the car and you had to beat the thing on with a hammer then your not likely to get it off without detroying it. If the outdrive is in good shape and worth saving break the gear off. It sounds to me like who ever built the car did not sand the outdrive hex correctly and forced it on. If that is the case it will not be coming off in reusable shape. Goodluck
