Need some help guys, have had the 410r since May and seems like problem after problem. I followed the oople build thread and that made it seem better. The problems are a funny vibration at low rpm that I can't seem to locate. I've changed all the bearings twice and tried rebuilding the diff's a few times with different shimming following the TD tech tips, as well as two diff motors. The second problem is that running 7 min is a challenge without overheating. I run a tekin Rs Pro with a Novak 6.5 geared 19 or 20 pinion and stock spur. Got some advice from tekin but still no real luck. Any help would be appreciated before I give up and get rid of it, Thanks Tom

1: should i wait for 410?
2: What 410 upgrades would i want?
3: what extras pinion,spur gear size, springs or other parts?
I want to have everything so i can assemble once and have the right tuning parts avalibale. Anything else anyone has for me please let me know. Thinking tekin rs pro w/7.5
thanks
1. unsure how long that wait will be?
2. typical upgrades for the 410R:-
- ballcups
- hinge pin holders (front & rear) .. can't think of anything else ..
3. pretty much depends on your gearing

i'm currently running tekin rs pro w/ lrp x12 7.5.
i like how the car handles and how strong it is
just need more run time on the car ..

Default Shocks

Fellow Racers,
Just go my Durango and was wondering where to set the shocks. The instructions give you not starting point suggestions, anybody know a good starting point for a loose bumpy track with a couple of big jumps and some tight turns? Your time is appreciated.
Respectfully,
Sean "Airborne" Hicks

For the people wondering about getting the 410r and upgrading I would suggest you find a good used 410 2010 version and rebuild it. Much less expense involved. Or wait out getting the 410 till the next version comes out which I would guess would be a revised chassis with droop screws etc? The down side is I have found that the plastic bulkheads (servo, rear brace, side plates) are preferred on the tracks I have tested on so far(chassis flexes more). The big bore shocks are nice also, working on if there is a damping cross reference.

Also I have found that you may need to alter your diff oil weights if you use the orange 408 oring mods for the 410 diffs. The Orings put quite a bit of preload on the diff assembly. I am in the process of coming up with a cross reference list for comparing the two setups. But with the oring update I could now see using oils like 1000cst in the rear diff with this update instead of 3k. Testing Thursday and Friday to find out for sure.

Default Rim and pin swap

Gentlemen,
I just finished the build on the DEX410 and noticed that the durango pin for the rims is a little longer than the B4.1 I have a B4.1 and B44 and would like to not waste a large investment in those tires. The question is can you replace the durango pin with an associated pin and run the associated rims? Has anyone done this and does it affect the performance of the car? Does the pin have a tendance to break? Any feed back is greatly appreciated.
Respectfully,
Sean

I just ground the pin down to suit, I've had no issues with jc b44 rears or the original wheels, seems to work fine for me

yup, that's a very sensible suggestion. the big drop in the Durango RRP have pretty much wiped out the used market for Dex410.
i've picked up a used but very good condition dex410 (at a very good price too boot) and an R for spares.

While I'm loading up my shopping cart with a 410R and outdrive boots, which hinge pin holders are most in need of upgrading to aluminum. I know the front one on the front (FF?) is the main concern, but has anyone experienced breakage with the FR or any on the rear ones? I'd like to spend as little as possible while maintaining a durable buggy

I have done it. (along with a few other things) I posted it a few pages back----> (yes you can use AE rims)

Replacement parts:

(Instead of TD310135 outer drive pins)
Team Associated FT Solid Axle Pins for the TC3 (No.1654) can be used for outer drive pins. They are shorter but do not bend and do not strip the wheel either.


(If the pin falls out of TD310115 Rear drive shaft)
Team Losi Center CV Rebuild kit for 8B (LOSA3525) fits. Don't forget to use red loctite!

(Instead of X rings used in diffs)
HPI (HPI104726) 5x9x2mm Silicone O-Ring Set fit and seal.
