hmm, so for someone debating which kit to buy and build, the 410 at 399 cdn sounds like a pretty good deal.. I'm not competitive enough to well, compete yet, so this would be a decent car to buy.

would you agree?

I don't think my skill are good enough that I'd be able to take advantage of the "new" v3's features.

what do you think? tossup between this and the AE RC10T4.1.. totally different cars/class too.

what motor/esc combo would you recommend?

Edit: motor/esc I'll just do a search, probably go with some Tekin stuff as I hear they're fairly strong.

If your upgrading your 410R to metal braces, you need to purchase the pivot balls (I didn't know either and had to order them after the fact....)

So what are the major differences between the 410 and 410r? Do you guys believe it is worth the extra $ to get the 410.
Thanks,
Beau

The diffs can be found on their site. Im perfectly happy with my R but u will have to put some extras into it. The front arm holder and balls being the only mandatory purchase besides new orings for the diffs. DO NOT EVEN BUILD A 410R WITHOUT THESE THREE ITEMS! For those that are going to ask the diff inserts are next on the list with ballcups and studs coming after that.You will save money on going with the higher end kit. However, it still has things that need to be updated.


Im hard on cars and this things is tough, but like anything else it can be broken with some effort.

Got mine built and love it, I went with box setup and it was good except for corner exit where you had to be very gentle or the ass would come around, I'm thinking thicker oil in the front???, also is there a direct replacement for the rodends???

RPM 73360 super duty rod ends are a direct fit to replace the crap rodends.

Question, the 310039 part that connects to the Lipo holder on DEX410R, and threads over and into the rear gearbox, you got two holes on it for the battery pin to go through, which one should you use? The upper or the lower one? Or does it depend on how big batteries you have? Mine are 25mm in height.

Its on page 27 in the manual.

no im not running rear weight, im running 5100mah batteries though which are weighty, ive just changed setup to randy pike setup except oils (no time so far), i do like the way the buggy jumps though so i imagine the weight would make it back heavy???
