Thanks

I'm leaning toward sensorless because of cost. I may go for a HobbyWing sensored combo, but the Castle Sidewinder SCT remains cheaper at only $90. Would the Xerun 60A be enough?

I have the Sidewinder combo in my SC10 4x4 and I like it very much (good performance and great value!) and I also have a DEX410 2010 Spec but I'm not sure you're going to be able to shoe-horn the Sidewinder in the DEX unless you have a really tiny receiver, like a KO or one of the tiny Spektrum ones.

Cheers,
Mike

Awesome, good to hear. I have the original Sidewinder in one of my stadium trucks, but I hear the SCT version handles more amperage and the 4-pole motor should have awesome torque and more smoothness than a standard 2-pole. My receiver should be fine, it's the FlySky GT3 Rx: http://www.hobbypartz.com/fs-gtr3c-receiver.html
If need be, I can probably mount it onto the side of the ESC

Depends what type of track your running on. I primarily run on a tight high-bite clay track, and run 2k front, 1k rear as anything thicker the car didn't want to rotate as well.

yeah Rick, I'd maybe go up one 1k (both fr/rr) on what I run and see how you like it. I'm sure plenty of other DEX drivers can chime in here with their track experiences.

wow, one person that runs with me runs 7/3 also, so 2/1 or 3/2 sounds lite but that's why i'm seeing what most start with.

Thanks

It really depends on configuration, grip and driving style. The car rotates great on power with 5/3 for me. The oil is thin enough to change quickly, But I can't say that running 1000 front and rear makes sense. Usually you run thicker oil front for on power steering and braking, also your losing braking ability with ultra light oils. Get 2-20k mugen oils (or whatever you prefer, I use mugen cause I have a lot, it's consistent and it's relatively inexpensive for cst oils). Start out with 7/3 or 5/3 and make changes. The car does need to be close to the setup your going to run. If it's pushing like a ...... all over and your way off no sense in trying to feel the difference in diff oils. If it loops on power drop down to 2k. Keep in mind that if you have a scale you can mix approximate half weights if one step is to much. Keep in mind you can use things like inserts to tune forward bite and side bite which effects which oils you use.

I started off with 15/10 and then 10/5 and everything in between. If you like a twitchier car run heavy oil. On my track (hard pack swept) I settled with 5/3. But if your overpowered or heavy finger you will burn the inside tire. If the car pulls to much or doesn't have enough corner entry, lighter front. If it loops around offpower in the corner, heavier rear. You really have to experiment. I would try 15/10 10/5 and then 5/3, and see what you like best, and fine tune from there. That's all I can say. Good Luck and let us know...........
