I would expect the ff and the rf (2/-2) carriers to be stressed the most. However the only thing I have broken on the car is the front arms.

Replace all the hinge pin holders, imo.

Then replace the rear gearbox inserts (the R ones are plastic, if you jump a lot you'll break them sooner or later) - TD310007 & TD310006. Again if you jump a lot your rear bulkheads might crack. Mine haven't yet (I've got a 410), but a friend that drives a 410R has broken 2 sets.

greathobbies.com here has one 410 left for $500CDN.. you might be able to talk them down to $400CDN which is what I paid.

Okay, thanks guys. I think I'll just get the aluminum FF holder for now and replace the rest as it is necessary. My local track (NorCal Hobbies) stocks Durango kits, so they ought to have parts as well. I think I'll jump on this soon and click the checkout button. I love building kits so much

Does anyone know what is going on with the 410 replacement? If they have discontinued the 410 and are out of stock in most places, shouldn't the new version be imminent? However, I don't see any rumours about it, dates specs etc.

Sorry if I am asking something that has been discussed to death but my searches haven't turned anything up

Default Battery Question

Fellow Racers,
Just finished the 410R build, tried to search for this answer but could not find it. Do you really need to remove the spur to place the batteries in the car or is there a better way to accomplish this. Additionally, does that strap really hold the batteries in or do I need to add something to the chasis to ensure that they do not slide. Your time and attention are greatly appreciated.
Respectfully,
Sean "Airborne" Hicks

You have to remove the spur/slipper assembly. It takes 5 seconds. One clip on the spur, one clip on the battery door, batteries out.

My LHS received an email today for placing orders on the dex410 v3. So, it must be coming soon.

yes, only 2 clips to remove when changing batteries. too easy.

i find some saddle packs doslide within the battery slot. double sided tapes on a few sides will take up any slop.

Default battery

Fellow Racers,
Thanks for the answers, did it a couple of times and you are right it was easier than I thought. I am acustomed to dealing with the 44 and thought that I was in for a headache. I will try and not ask a stupid question like that again.
Respectfully,
Sean Hicks

sean - don't worry about it. ask away .. that's why we're all here to learn


just fyi .. taken from Oople.

From TD

"The new features on the DEX410v3 are:-

Big bore shocks - more consistent on rough tracks due to the larger volume of oil.

Gold shock shafts as standard – super smooth Ti Ni coated shock shafts.

New ‘Kuhler’ Body – increased space inside the body and improved air flow to the electronics

New RR suspension arm brace – allows the rear squat to be altered using moulded inserts.

New ‘Fine Tune’ shock towers with finer adjustment for the upper mounting positions and more rear camber link positions on the rear tower.

New HD Ball Ends used throughout – tighter fitting and less likely to pop off during a collision.



Changes from the 2010 kit are:-

Plastic side rails are used in place of the aluminium side rails.

Plastic servo mount is used in place of the machined aluminium one.

Plastic rear gearbox inserts used in place of the machined aluminium parts.

Plastic middle bulkhead used in place of the machined aluminium part.

Moulded upper shock mounts with steel screw.

Revised rear bulkhead and rear gearbox hoop to improve strength in these areas.

Steel turnbuckles used in place of titanium turnbuckles.

Shock and drive shaft boots removed from the kit.

Some of these changes have been made following feedback we received from drivers of the out-going model. After listening to our team drivers and our customers we feel that not all of the machined aluminium parts are required in the kit, so changing these to plastic has helped us bring out a better, but less expensive buggy.

We will still be producing the machined aluminium parts, rubber boots and other option parts for this kit to allow people to upgrade their models should they choose to.

The part number and name for this kit are TD102011 DEX410v3"

Good to hear DEX410v3 is going to be out soon. Don't like it when they keep silent on a new product but I can understand why they do it. Hope it wont take too long to get to the stores.

I'm assuming all the new parts will fit on the current 410, right?
