If that is a med sized outdoor track then I have got to see a large one. That track is large for 10th scales.

Ok that track is large for 1/10 as Reaper suggested. You're under geared. Try a 21-22. I'd like to know the entire list of esc settings most importantly is esc timing.

I'll put them online and hope that someone is willing to buy them. Shipping to shop would be too expensive I guess.

So what do you think about the DEX 210? I have two on pre order

Maybe needs a separate thread?

It really depends on how big is big and what your skill level is. A 13.5 with some boost can really be a quick ride if you have a larger track that maintains some speed between the corners. I would start somewhere 19-21t and check your temps. Most people i know run an 8.5t or so in just about every 4wd buggy out there but if you can maintain the speed and not have to really punch out of all the turns you should be fine with a 13.5 and maybe a little boost for the straightaway.

Does someone has a PDF manual of the 2010 spec? I can only find the R manual on TD's website. I bought the alu diff inserts for my dex410r but it seems that I need different screws.

And another question: A friend bought a dex410r for his son with a 9.5T. Which would be a good pinion to start with? His son is 8 years old and it's his first "real rc" car. He has driven an RC car before but it a brushed Ansmann or something.

EDIT: I found the manual, but they use button head screws in the manual. And on all the pictures I can see cap head screws but I don't know which size I should. Probably M3x10 or M3x12 I guess.

Same screws on the diff inserts, button heads.

Gearing for a 9.5 depends on what esc settings. Anywhere from 25 to 28. Esc settings will really set this motor up on gearing.

Thank you Randy.
I managed to get the button heads in the inserts, but they don't fit really well. I had to push/twist them in.
Anyway, just drove my dex410 on a backyard track where they drive 1/8 so it's a bit too bumpy for 1/10. The dex410 drove fairly good on it, but the was jumping a lot in the bump and ruts in the turns.

If the weather is good, I'm going to a technical 1/10 clay track tomorrow and try to get it dialed

Btw, do you guys have the same issue that the shockshaft moves less smoother when you tighten the shockcaps at the bottom? I need to screw caps a little back to get the shaft true the O-ring.

No, should be smooth all the time. Make sure you have all the parts seated fully. Remove ANY burs on the plastic parts. Both the inner and outer alignment washers must seat. If you put the inner one upside down it will not seat all the way down and will cause binding.

Yep, they are build that way. But they feel smoother when I unscrew the shockcap a half turn. Maybe it's because the shocks are still new. I'll take them appart after a few more runs.

I still have a problem with the rear skidplate that likes to eat dirt. After 1 run in moisture dirt, the skidplate is curved with about 3mm of dirt under it and then it's catching all the ruts and bumps. Does anyone have tips to keep it clean?
