Yeah that doesn't look right at all.

These towers look the same as the SC tuck parts complete with extra hole on the rear tower for the body mount.
When you built the upper camber links, did you build them stock, ie 20mm between ballcups (are you using stock ball cups btw - looks like it from pic) or did you have to make them shorter ? wondering if there is a problem with the lower rear arms in the kit (i.e they're slightly shorter) making the links needing to be shorter, pushing the Rear 61mm shafts further in the outdrives ?

The drive shafts are printed 61mm and I have double checked this measurement with my calipers. This must be a shock tower issue being to tall or something. I currently have a 2mm spacer along with the supplied rubber bump stop on the shock shaft to limit upward travel. None of the setup sheets I've seen online are like this.

This kit was assembled per instructions and my car building experience dates to 1987. Rear camber is currently set slightly positive at this stage of the build.

The DEX410R shock towers are the same as those used on the DESC410R short course truck, and the outer holes are not meant to be used on the buggy. The outer two holes on the rear and the outer on the front are extra holes for the DESC410R truck.

So the towers are the same....can you tell me if the dimensions are the same from the R tower against the SPEC tower, the inner holes of course. Thanks

Just finished the build. The GTB2 was the ESC of choice that I had laying around. Only thing I need to watch for is the servo wire binding because its the Low Profile savox. Yes, i do need to secure that switch

Lookin' good Tamak! We had a nice solid heat at Streamwood last night. We need some more 'rangos out there (only 2 of the 5 were dex410)

Its great to see that they are still developing the 410. Maybe the V3 with still be based on that chassis? Does anyone know?

Here's a pic of my DEX410R wired up. I still have to shorten the servo wire since it's long enough to repel from a building.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of picking up a DEX410R for some fun at the track and some bashing (no, I'm not throwing it off buildings, I'm running it up and down the street and taking it on some trails at the park). I wish I had the time to read this whole thread but from my search, there's no answer to my question yet: Will the Sidewinder SCT combo work for this, specifically the 3800Kv motor? From what I've seen, it's a good bit lower Kv than what others are running. I know it has the torque to gear it up, but I dunno if there's enough space for a big ol' pinion. If that setup is not suggested, what Kv of Castle motor should I be looking for? 5700Kv? Thanks

I am not sure why you would want to go sensor-less? Sensored technology is so inexpensive these days. I would suggest a speed passion GT 2.0 lpf, Novak GTB 2, Havoc Pro SC, or even the new Duratrax DE10 (It should fit). And buy a 8.5t for versatility, you can always dial it down. My .02.
