About to press the "buy now" button for a new DEX410R.

What's a good cheap servo to run? I will be racing so something decent and under $100 is preferable. Also would like some suggestions on which brushless system to get. I will be going for a 7.5T.

I can't get my Durango right at our local track. It's very low grip. The cars are floating on the surface.

My car understeers a lot when entering a turn and it oversteers extremely as soon as I hit the throttle. The chicane section is horrible.

I think I'm going to fit the 1 rear hubs, move to the shortest wheelbase and fit the green springs in the back. But I'm scared to lose turn in when I do that. The is barely steering off power...

First thing that comes to mind is tires, are they the same as everyone else? Then if you run swaybars.

Tires make more difference than any other adjustment on the car. That is where you should start.

I'm running the Savox 1251MG
Great little servo, and only $60 from here.

Also, I run 7/3 diff oils and the car is brilliant.

First post your setup. But I would look at a couple things, First is tires and inserts. They connect the car to the track. Ask the local fast guys what they run. If your not far off on that. I would throw on the 1* rear hubs for off the corner grip. Look at the front diff oil weight, drag brake, ditch the front swaybar if your running one, and look at front spring/ camber. If your running anything over 7k front get rid of it lol. If your struggling on entry keep in mind the motor drag from brushless is small and varies for each motor. Try adding some drag brake if the rest of your setup makes sense. Rake (front - rear rideheight) has a subtle influence too. So if your running the stock dark blues I might try black fronts with light green rear. But post up and we will go from there, OR it could be just trying to drive the car to deep in the corner and braking to hard to late... I had to adjust that coming from touring cars.. oh, and if the track is low grip I would definatly use the plastic rear chassis brace rather than the carbon brace.

If you have a radio that is 2.4ghs with any of the high response variants this will work beautifully( Savox 1267tg). It's silly fast with my ko radio, I say it turns at the speed of thought. Worst case if it unsettles the car(which it can) turn the steering speed down.

For brushless there are really two esc's for the job, one is speed passion gt2.0 and the other is my preference and that is the LRP SXX tc version 2. The logic for current limiter is GREAT, while it's 4wd mod it's still helpful not to light up the tires and power profile 2211 seems to work best for me. along with a LRP 7.5 Octa you should be dialed.

If I want to put some big bore shocks on the DEX410, I'm assuming I want the 23mm front and 31mm rear big bore shock sets, right?

My local track is relatively low grip as well. It's clay with a BUNCH of dust on top and quite blown out as it's primarily a 1/8th nitro track. I set my DEX up with a Brian Kinwald setup from here:
http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...ce20110130.pdf

Only differences are that I run the plastic rear brace and big bore shocks, but otherwise it's the same setup and it is fantastic on our track. Great turn-in on corner entry but the back end stays put on the way out (unless I do something silly like pin it ).

Cheers,
Mike

I have a new 410 I am building for an indoor clay track with med to high bite. I plan to use gold barcodes and try ss rebars, not sure about foam choice yet. Not sure on battery yet, considering 40c to 65c, 4800 to 5300 max.

This track has big jumps and some tight technical areas. I plan to use a D3 7.5t motor and 5/3 for starters on the diffs.

Any suggestions appreciated or if a 6.5t is better (I am an experienced racer)?

Will Losi or Kyosho standard 10th scale shock springs fit the DEX410 kit shocks?

Are the balanced weights (kit) for the rear helpful?

Thanks!

I'm looking at the big bore kits ,do they fit right on or do I need to modify or buy extra to fit them on ? Also the springs from desc are made for these right ?

The big bores fit on the rear with any mods. The front big bore kit come with new shock standoffs.

Yes some of the springs from the Desc fit the buggy(front 23mm).
