Picked up a used dex410r. Got it all together and took it out last night. It was a pain trying to fit the electrics (MMP AND 8.5 motor) Gotta say I love driving this car. I can drive aggressive and still hold in corners and if rear end slips I could just power over and it straighten back up. Has lots of steering maybe to much. Had a couple crashes and only broke the rear diff hoop. It is a weak part. I ordered the tresrey front and rear hoops. Can't wait to get it back to the track.

I ran 22t pinion felt a little slow. What are people running with a 8.5?

I run a 22 with a 6.5 so you should be around a 25/26 with a 8.5

So I changed my fluids for 10/5k to 5/3k and the buggy is much more settled and predictable. Too bad nobody showed up to race 4wd at MHOR tonight .

Well we had a class last weekend. We just needed another guy to make the class. No worries as the season is just getting started. Last year we had a B mains in mod 4wd buggy.

You might try petitrc.com for some setup help- they have tons of setups on all kinds of surfaces. What we found with the DESC410 is that the looser the track is the heavier you want your diffs. Light diff oil on very low traction surfaces can lead to diffing out and making the car very unpredictable on power. I would start somewhere around 10-15k in front and 3-5k in the rear. If its twitchy on corner exit go up another step on the oil. If it feels like it pushes on entry try a rear sway bar to help with rotation while still keeping the front end in check.

Since parts are hard to come by at the moment, I was wondering if anyone would take the time to compile a list of parts from other kits (Manufactures) that would fit the DEX410R with minimal modification. Examples would be ball ends, turnbuckles, gears, shock springs and parts, wheels, etc., Or anything else you could think of or have tried.

Thanks in advance to the person(s) who responds.

Ran them on Friday night. Transmission runs smoother than with the standard driveshafts, generates less heat over a run. Car was run on high grip carpet with a 6.5turn motor with timing and turbo timing.

Im about to pick up a new built but never ran 410R. I really wanted the v3 or the spec but for 200 new with a couple extras cant pass it up. I have never had a 1/10 scale buggy or a durango only 1/8 scale. What is the best set up for electronics and what size motors,batteries and gears do i need? What are must have upgrades and or mods? Thanks.

Oh boy.. http://www.petitrc.com/setup/durango...ngoDEX410.html has a lot of good setups.

Think about what size track/surface you'll be running at and pick a setup that feels right.

There is no best electronics setup, and everyone has their own opinions. You've limited room in the DEX410x so go with a Tekin RSPro, LRPv2 TC, or the Viper (something small basically).
Motors, many to choose from. Novak, Tekin, Viper etc. You'll need to think about the size track and what Turn motor you'll need. You can get gearing info from the setup sheets.

Plenty of Lipo Saddles out there, just make sure they're less than 25mm high.

Upgrades, (Racers Edge/Tresrey) Alum servo arm and servo saver (top), ( TD) front and rear innner/outer Alum hinge pin holders, (TD/Tresrey) Rear Alum Diff loop - I'm sure others can chime in with more but thats about the bare minimum IMHO.
Thanks TAMAK (i'll add your comments to mine: ) ) - Get the Kyosho P5 O'rings of DNX480 O-rings described on the TD website to limit leaking diffs. If you can get a spare 87T Spur (BO everywhere right now) have one of those in your pit box too. Have a spare Ring Gear or two also.

Good advice!! Stock up on a spare rear bulkhead set and also trim the shock towers down 1 hole front and 2 holes rear with a dremel. Do the Diff seal mod listed on the TD website. And would be helpful to carry 2 ring gears in case you got a bad batch. It happens. Also make sure you have 0 wobble in the pinion gear that goes into the diff case. That will make for a bad day at the track.

Check the stock bearings as well
