No reason to trash this perfectly good thread, when I can just edit the first post to mirror the way the other "Guide" threads are done.
Sounds like a great idea to me. Thanks Dave, Now I just have to come up with the time to do it!

Whew! Read all 459 pages of this thread while building my Dex410.

What an impressive kit, I'm just getting back in to RC after 15yrs and I'm thoroughly impressed with the options and quality these days. I've got an old Tamiya TG10 if anyone wants one

My setup (still waiting on delivery on most parts, stupid Canada post)
Dex410 2010 spec
Viper VTX10/VST7.5 combo
Savox 1267SG (high voltage)
Promatch 5200mah/50C Lipo pack

Initial setup
Kit diff oils (have to start somewhere)
Kit Springs with 30wt/40wt shock oil

What am I racing? Nothing yet... I had this overwhelming urge to build something (I was a Lego kid!). I'll most likely build my own dirt track at the cottage and invite some friends out

Thanks for the thread guys!

isnt the regular sidewinder supposed to be problematic? otherwise iwould consider it. i did pick the sidewinder sct 3800kv for my rc car comparisan because it had good reviews all around, but it was mixed emotions for the regular one. i was going to get a hobbywing 120A 1/10-1/12 scale esc to go with the motor btw.

Default Just had to share!

I all...I know this isn't anything folks haven't seen before, but I'm so stoked about this buggy that I have to share .

These were from before the maiden run so it's all nice and shiny clean. I can't believe how utterly beautiful and well put-together this thing is...I'm particularly please with the quality of the Tersrey bits.

Cheers,
Mike

Sick, second race with the car wasnt it? Guess all those haters that said this car just doesnt work will have to rethink it. I am so pleased to finally have these guys figuring out this car. Congrats to Team D!
@ Ryan I cant wait to watch you school all the rango haters at the Nitro Challenge this weekend!

Any changes to the setup you posted for the buggy? Fat shocks or standards? Im happy with the stockers but up for whatever works best.

As far as I know the SV2 and the Sidewinder Sct are the same unit! Cant speak on hobbywing as I have never tried their products.

ive just started my build, i have the spec kit, is the box setup a good start or is there something better?

i did notice that the 100000 cst oil that was supplied is no where near as thick as it should be????

Which ESC would you recommend for the car? I see a lot seems to be using the Tekin, but any other good ESC out there that you would recommend?

Use what your happy with! I think most use the RS pro as it is the smallest thing out there as well as being a great esc. I like Castle I already had one sitting so thats what I used and if I can get a MMP escwith a Futaba603 RX in there pretty much anything is game as long as your willin gto go with one of the aftermarket shells!

Don't really have much experience with different brands of ESC's, pretty new to the game, and so far i've only had a Losi ESC and some cheap ZTW stuff in my TLR22.

So that's why am asking, been looking at the Tekin, and most seem to be happy with it, though heard some have had problems with the BEC, am also a bit worried that maybe not all ESC will fit in the this car? As with the TLR22 things seems to be a tight fit.
