as i am looking to add one of these to my stable, i've followed this thread since it started, i have to ask, are most of these guys with issues running the 2010 spec or the R versions. it seems like the plastics have some tolerance issues? and the aluminum parts of the '10spec do not??

i've noticed the number of issues reported nearly quadrupled (sp?) after the R came out. that could be because it was more affordable, so more people are running it (larger chance for error) or the possible issue i've stated above.

anyone car to share?

What ballcups do I need to get for the front steering? I was having this issue last night with them popping off.

Let me know.

Thanks
just RPM cups won't work...you need to change the ball studs as well

Here is what i had copied from here, i take no credit as it's another member who had posted this and i'm glad to help you out


copied:

I just replaced my ball cups with RPM rod ends and the ball studs with Team Associated TC5 ball studs with metric thread. You also need some M3 nylock nuts. This is a perfect fit. The only thing I left are the original servo arm rod ends as there are countersunk holes which would not fit with the replacement ball studs.

Parts needed:
RPM73392 RPM Long Shank Rod Ends (1 pack = 12 pieces, better get 2 packs)
ASC31288 Ti Nitride Ballstuds M3x5, Short (1 pack)
ASC31289 Ti Nitride Ballstuds M3x8, Short (2 packs)
ASC31292 Ti Nitride Ballstuds M3x8,Long (2 packs)
ASC31290 Ti Nitride Ballstuds M3x10, Short (1 pack)

The fitment would be:
Front Caster Link Outer 5mm Short
Front Caster Link Inner (on Tower) 10mm Short with M3 nylock nut
Steering link outer 8mm Long with M3 nylock nut
Steering link inner 8mm Short with M3 nylock nut Rear link outer 8mm Long with M3 nylock nut
Rear link inner 8mm Short with M3 nylock nut

I have both the desc410 and the dex410 and i would have to say that the lower price and better distribution would be the reasons you saw/see more issues, not the plastics.

With the cost of the dex410 it was only initially picked up by those experienced racers who felt the need to spend that kind of money on it, as opposed to your average club racer who it might have been a little out of the price range. Experienced racers would have their own solutions for issues and most would be able to solve them without resorting to plastering a message board. Also your more experienced racers would probably be better drivers (maybe not faster but wheels-down more, lol) When the 410r came out it opened the door to your average club racer who may not be able to keep it wheels down as much and/or may not have the experience to hunt down solutions before asking questions. Granted this is just a broad macro level opinion and there are certain to be tons of exceptions to this observation.

In my experience i would suggest getting the 410r or waiting for the V3 that is sure to be coming out soon. The 410 needs a couple things that were updated on the 410r (lipo hold downs) and a lot of people are replacing the AL side pods first thing out of the box so thats 100 bucks in parts you may not use and 20 bucks in parts to swap them out. If you really want all the bells and whistles check out some of the EU shops online, they have killer deals right now on the 410 including the big bores for less than the cost of the 410 here.

i'm two steps ahead of you, i've found even better deals (1/2 the price as MB Models in Europe) with a few inside sources at a few shops. at these prices i could buy an R, big bores + springs and a few teresy needed upgrades (servo saver etc) and still not even touch the price of the '10 spec. so when the 2011 comes out the those few upgrades (center drive shaft D-links, body, ball cups etc.) it'll be no problem.

The two cars share the same issues almost entirely. The drop in price to the R kit put it in the price range of much less experienced drivers/builders and put more of them out there. That is why you hear about more issues with the R kit.

I've been running a fully upgraded R version for about 6 months and haven't had any real issues at all. Nothing that any other 4wd buggy doesn't have issues with. The thing has been pretty much bullet-proof. Get the diffs shimmed correctly and drive it to the winners circle.

Ya there was one place i saw that had the 410 '10 spec and the big bores for $500. Almost tempting enough to get a second one, where is the stock 4wd class when i want to run 2 buggies, lol.

as tempting as it is at that price, i'm holding out for the '11 spec... but i'll kick myself if all that changes on the '11 spec is big bores and a higher price

You think the TD would update the R with big bores as well?


On the fence about ordering a 4wd right now because I just know something new will come out right when I buy it.

I will probably wait until August before I pull the trigger.

It would make little sense to get a new 410 out before they release the much anticipated DEX408 however I could see them offering an upgrade kit for the big bores and possibly selling the same kit with big bores as the next run.

i'm begining to think the dex408 won't be out til next summer, at the earliest. there is hardly any talk about it, i don't recall any race results from test cars lately either. on the other hand, there was photos of new style 410 driveshafts on here the other day, add big bores, new towers with more mounting locations, new hubs with larger outer bearings, raise the rear driveshaft 2 or 3 mm to accept more lipos, an aluminum servo saver arm of course, swapping the metal side rails for the plastic ones, maybe even new design diffs and housings... and presto... dex410 2011 spec

sigh, I have a feeling I should wait. Right now you can get the R for about $250, the '10 for about $370.

if youre in the market for a car to race right now the 10 spec for 370 is a steal, add big bores and you are still not even at 500 and youll have a badass car! buy the upgrades later on. if you are not going to race it til the winter indoor season, yes then wait and see, jmho
